I agree, not burners, but they will get open deep by design. But Toon is a tough receiver that will do everything asked of him, which is what we need here.
Good point, Receivers don't necessarily have to be burners to get open deep; it can also be accomplished by scheme. Maybe Toon and McNutt didn't show that because of the offense's they were in. I know Iowa and Wisconsin have both traditionally been run heavy teams. I know Tolzein and Stanzi didn't have big arms (although I admit I don't know as much about the abilty of Russell Wilson and Iowa's 2011 QB to throw deep), so maybe Toon and McNutt aren't to blame for this
P.S. I do like Toon and McNutt by the way, and I wouldn't mind getting either in round 3 if we don't take a Wr before then. As long as they can get open better than Crabtree, I'm good.
