Scouting the MAC: Toledo

Toledo has slowly become a competitive team in the MAC and hope to make a repeat bowl appearance after staying close to home in the Motor City Bowl last December. They've also quietly put productive players into the NFL recently.

The top pro-prospects on offense are from the junior class starting with a pair of tight ends who offer contrasting styles. Andrew Clark is a big-body best blocking for the run and effective only as a short yardage target in the passing game. He best fits in as a team's second tight end. Chris Holmes is more a receiving threat and displays the ability to make big receptions down the field. He's reliable and has improved his blocking. Both have mid-to-late round potential in 2005. Junior Nick Kaczur does a good job on the blind side and has a future, though it may be at guard.

Early in his career we ranked Brandon Hefflin relatively high as the corner displayed excellent cover skills. His game has seemingly leveled off and Hefflin is not as aggressive or active compared to the skills displayed back in 2000 or 2001.
