Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline questioned Toledo T Storm Norton's consistency during the East-West Shrine Game practice week.

Pauline offered a perfect encapsulation of the ups-and-downs of Norton's week after Wednesday's practice session, relaying that on that day, the 6-foot-8, 306-pounder "lost his footing a few times early in practice, but a few reps later he performed a textbook reach block on Avery Moss." The analyst did come away impressed with his ability as a run-blocker, writing that "Norton moves efficiently to the second level. If he was able to engage the defender, he typically came out victorious." Pauline projects him as a potential sixth- or seventh-round selection come this spring's draft.

Toledo redshirt senior DL Treyvon Hester injured his labrum in late October and underwent surgery in December, removing him from the East-West Shrine Game.

Hester will be limited during the draft process and won't go through drills at the NFL Combine. Tony Pauline reports Hester will have a workout for teams in April.
Jan 16 - 8:42 AM

Toledo TE Michael Roberts accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Roberts (6-foot-4, 270 pounds) is massive and productive. He caught 43 passes for 514 yards and a nation-leading 15 touchdown receptions this past season. The first-team All-MAC honoree isn't terribly athletic, though, with a CBS-reported 4.93-second forty. "Roberts is limited in areas and won't consistently separate, but he is very talented at the catch point with the smooth body control that shows as a pass-catcher and blocker," wrote Dane Brugler. Roberts is the No. 11 tight end prospect, according to CBS, and likely to land on Day 3.
Jan 14 - 11:10 AM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 18-of-26 passes for 247 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Appalachian State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Woodside has been one of the most consistent (and consistently prolific) quarterbacks in the country this season, but his efforts were mostly blunted by Appalachian State in the Camellia Bowl. Saturday's contest marked the first time in 13 games that the 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior was held to fewer than three passing touchdowns and the third time in which he has failed to pass for at least 250 yards. Despite this relative down note to finish out the campaign, Woodside's overall statistical output remains shiny enough. He finishes up having passed for 4,129 yards while posting a blindingly brilliant 45/9 TD/INT ratio.

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 120 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries in Saturday's 31-28 loss to Appalachian State in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl.

Hunt's second touchdown came from one yard out in the closing seconds of the third quarter. That one knotted the score at 28-all. The Rockets would ultimately fall after they were unable to match an Appalachian State field goal which snapped the aforementioned tie midway through the fourth quarter. The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Hunt finishes out his final season with the Rockets having rushed for 1,475 and 10 touchdowns. He will next surface at the Senior Bowl as he preps for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

In early September, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline praised Hunt's "quickness, burst and agility." The 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior proceeded to turn in a lovely rebound season after a down 2015 campaign that saw him finish with 973 yards rushing. This time around, Hunt has rushed for 1,355 yards (5.6 YPC) and eight scores over the course of 12 games.

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 200 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Friday's 55-35 loss to Western Michigan.

Not only was Hunt a beast on the ground, averaging an even 10.0 YPC, he also chipped in with three catches for 73 yards. All of this beautiful work went in vain on a rainy Friday night fit for rowing a boat. This was the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back's fourth consecutive game of at least 100 yards rushing. His 200 yards on Friday stand as his best tally of the 2016 campaign.

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 107 yards on 17 carries in Wednesday's 37-19 win over Ball State.

Hunt couldn't find the end zone as a rusher, but oh boy, did he find it as a receiver, coming away from the game with a 71-yard scoring grab. He finished the contest with six catches for 98 yards and the singular score. For the season as a whole, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior has rushed for 1,155 yards (5.3 YPC) and seven touchdowns in 11 games. He has shown his mettle as a receiver throughout and is currently working on a lovely little 36-304-1 line on that front.

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 25-of-39 passes for 325 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Wednesday's 37-19 win over Ball State.

This game was played in an eerie, dense fog, but that proved no concern for Woodside, who threw two of his three touchdowns post-halftime -- only after the game turned into a John Carpenter movie. This was the 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior's seventh 300-yard passing game in 11 contests. That is impressive enough, but pales in comparison to Woodside's propensity for the touchdown pass. He has tossed at least three in every game this season. Overall, the gunslinger has thrown for 3,653 yards (70.1% completions) with a 40/7 TD/INT ratio. A road showdown with Western Michigan is all that is left on the regular season schedule. That contest will be played next Friday.

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 23-of-33 passes for 286 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

All three of Woodside's touchdown passes came in the second half, as the 6-foot-2, 210-pounder helped lead a comeback after falling behind 21-10 midway through the third quarter. Woodside is now up to 3,328 passing yards with a 37/6 TD/INT ratio in 10 games played.
Thu, Nov 10, 2016 05:33:00 PM

Toledo redshirt sophomore WR Jon'Vea Johnson caught six passes for 129 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

On his touchdown, Johnson ran wide open across the middle of the field and QB Logan Woodside hit him perfectly in stride from 36 yards out. The 6-foot, 183-pounder has been a big-play receiver throughout the season and is averaging 20.6 yards per reception. Through 10 games, he has caught 34 passes for 700 yards and nine touchdowns.
Thu, Nov 10, 2016 05:20:00 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Wednesday's 31-24 win over Northern Illinois.

Hunt's touchdown wasn't a long bolt for glory, but boy howdy, it was an important one. He scored from one yard out with just 1:15 remaining in the game, snapping a 24-24 tie in the process. NIU held a 21-10 lead midway through the third quarter, only to see it all slip away. Toledo improved to 8-2 with the victory. They will close out the regular season with games against Ball State and Western Michigan. The latter contest, slated for Friday, November 25, could pit a 9-2 Toledo team against an 11-0 Western Michigan team. If the Rockets can hold up their end of the bargain, the Broncos only need to beat Buffalo next Saturday to set everything up for that huge tilt.

Toledo junior WR Cody Thompson caught five balls for 70 yards Wednesday against Akron.

We've been impressed by the Rockets' home run deep threat this fall. He's proven to be more than a one-trick pony, snatching the ball away from defensive backs in one-on-one situations and creating space buffers with his tight routes. Thompson boasts a 47-987-9 line so far.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 07:33:00 PM

Toledo senior RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Wednesday's 48-17 win over Akron.

Hunt offered metronomic consistency in this one, averaging 8.0 YPC with a long run of 21 yards. His touchdown came from two yards out with several minutes gone in the third quarter. With the performance, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound senior passed Wasean Tait to move to second on Toledo's all-time rushing leaderboard. For the campaign as a whole, Hunt has picked his way to 926 yards on the ground while scoring six rushing touchdowns over the course of nine games.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 02:07:00 PM

Toledo senior QB Logan Woodside completed 26-of-37 passes for 327 yards and three touchdowns in Wednesday's 48-17 win over Akron.

Woodside connected with Michael Roberts for an 18-yard score as time expired in the first half, then came out of the locker room to fire off two more touchdown passes before the game's end. The 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior has been among the most impressive quarterbacks in the country on a pure statistical basis this season. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in all but two of Toledo's nine games to date and has thrown for at least three touchdowns in every single one of them. Overall, Woodside has racked up 3,042 passing yards with a 34/5 TD/INT ratio.
