2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Keith Toston, RB, Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State is not known for their rushing attack, but Keith Toston has been a vital part of the dynamic Cowboy offense. When he is not rushing the ball, he is still involved in the offense by catching a ton of passes out of the backfield or using his 6-0, 214 pound frame to block for his quarterback. Toston came on strong as a true freshman, rushing for 631 yards and six scores. He added two more trips to the end zone on the receiving end. Toston found himself behind Dantrell Savage and Kendall Hunter on the depth chart for most of his sophomore campaign. In the 11 games he played, he only carried the ball 38 times for 190 yards. Making matters worse, Toston suffered a knee injury that ended his disappointing sophomore season. Though in 2008 Toston came back strong. While he was once again stuck behind Hunter on the depth chart, Toston proved to be a solid change of pace back who averaged 6.7 yards per carry and reached the end zone nine times. Toston finally was the go-to-guy in 2009 and he did not disappoint. He showed that he could be an every down back and ended the regular season with 1,177 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Toston was also second on the team in 2009 with 24 receptions. 2/15 Update: Toston failed to separate himself from some of the other mid-round running backs during the East-West Shrine Game. During the game he rushed four times for nine yards. While he is certainly a dynamic rusher who can be a receiving threat out of the backfield, Toston better have some good workouts over the next two months or he will be a fourth or fifth round selection at best.

Prediction: 6th Round

Toston is comparable to Oklahoma's Chris Brown, the skillset to be the weak link in a rotation.Not much more.
