Toby Gerhart  

Height: 6-0   Weight: 235   Age: 31

Born: 3/28/1987 Norco , CA

College: Stanford

Experience: Season









Draft 2010

Pick No.51

Selected By: Minnesota Vikings

Round: 2

Pick (Overall): 19 (51)

Pick Analysis: Gerhart is a big, powerful ball carrier that has just enough speed to be a threat. He runs with a good pad level and consistently breaks through first contact and gets a lot of his yards after initial contact. He seems to get stronger as the game wears on and defenses visibly grow weary of trying to take him on in the latter parts of the game. He knows how to follow his blockers and is patient as he waits for the hole to open up. He is an effective receiver out of the backfield and, while he is not apt to be used as a downfield threat, he can move the chains in the short to intermediate passing game.
