NEW YORK - Wisconsin's Nick Toon, the son of former New York Jets standout Al Toon, was selected in the fourth round of Saturday's NFL draft by New Orleans.
"My dad was a great football player," Nick Toon said. "I don't think anyone would debate that. To go to the same school and play the same position, I think is a challenge."
Wide receivers and more trades were trendy on the final day of the draft, which ended when Indianapolis selected North Illinois quarterback Chandler Harnisch as Mr. Irrelevant - 252 picks after taking Andrew Luck to open the proceedings.
Cleveland, desperate for offensive playmakers, might have added one in Miami Hurricanes receiver Travis Benjamin, and Carolina went for Arkansas wideout Joe Adams, all in the first nine selections. There were eight wide receivers chosen in the round, including Toon.
Another three wideouts were chosen in the fifth round, four in the sixth, and five in the seventh for a total of 33.
