Pick #245: Spencer Toone, LB, Utah

Height: 6-1.5
Weight: 238
40 Time: 4.68

With the 245th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Utah LB Spencer Toone.

Toone was a three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. He led the team in tackles as a senior posting 113/5/2.5 after a junior campaign of 115/4/1. He is a run-and-chase linebacker best playing downhill. He displays solid sideline-to-sideline range, works through the traffic and makes plays in all directions of the field. He is effective in pursuit, fast to the flanks and gets depth on drops.



Pick #:246: Quinton Ganther, RB, Utah

Height: 5-9.5
Weight: 218
40 Time: 4.56

With the 246th pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans selected Utah RB Quinton Ganther.

Ganther was an All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 205/1,120/7 on the ground and adding 25/314/1 as a pass catcher. He posted 654 yards rushing in two starts as a junior.

Ganther is a strong, multi-purpose back who overcame a difficult childhood to get where he is today. He is aggressive and gives effort in every facet of the game. He follows blocks, has a burst through the hole and doles out punishment to opponents. He breaks several tackles during a single run and stuns defenders with a forearm shiver. Ganther is a solid receiver with consistent hands.

With his strong blocking abilities and good hands, he may project to be a fullback at the pro level if he bulks up to the 235 range.
