The linebacker core will surely have some choices this year for Seattle’s ninth ranked defense. Fifth round pick goes to Korey Toomer.
This outside line backer out of University of Idaho is an extremely well placed pick up with nothing but an upside to him. He has great fluidity and is very smooth going in any direction on the field. He can quickly change positions and make great plays. He has 68 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, and 4 sacks. He remains very disciplined a versatile. He has the ability to hammer through blocks quickly and locate the ball. Toomer follows assignments to the T and will add extra damage on the strong side of several defensive schemes.
Toomer transferred for a junior college and broke into the starting line up last season for the UI Vandels. His weakness is displayed in his hesitation and is some times late to react.
However his athleticism gives him an edge, making him perfect for Carroll’s “Always Compete” way of training.
