The lowest point of Urban Meyer’s first NFL draft came courtesy of the New York Giants.
Meyer told ESPN’s College GameDay on Friday that it “broke his heart” when a team selected a player he was targeting with the 25th overall pick. Meyer reluctantly admitted on Saturday that the player was former Florida receiver Kadarius Toney, whom the New York Giants took with the 20th pick.
“I’ve gotten to know him over the last couple weeks and obviously my connection with [Gators] coach [Dan] Mullen and those guys,” Meyer said. “You watch [Toney] play, he’s a human highlight reel.”
With Toney gone, Meyer and the Jaguars opted for Clemson running back Travis Etienne. He actually is a better fit based on the way the Jaguars plan to use him– similar to the way Meyer used Percy Harvin when he was the head coach at Florida.
