Full disclosure - I knew nothing about Samori Toure until Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson reported the Nebraska wideout was drawing "heavy interest" from the Chiefs, Bengals, Packers, Colts, and 49ers.

Toure is climbing draft boards after impressing NFL scouts at his pro day. The 6-foot-1 and 195-pound wide receiver ran a 4.44 during his 40-yard dash while also testing well in the short-area quickness drills.

The former Grizzlie's three-cone time of 6.77 seconds ranked in the 79th percentile, and his 4.22 short shuttle ranked in the 50th percentile. However, the shuttle time ranked fourth-best in the class behind those that tested at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine behind Calvin Austin, Kevin Austin, and Khalil Shakir.

But there's reason to believe the NFL and fantasy gamers should have been harping on Toure even before his pro day. In his final season, the guy was a mega-producer playing in the FCS at Montana, posting over 1,400 receiving yards and 12 scores. Toure posted six 100-yard receiving games, including a school-record 303 yards on 12 catches against Southeast Louisiana.

After 2019, he transferred to Nebraska to prove he could play against stiffer competition and did precisely that. He led the Cornhuskers in all receiving categories during his age-23 senior season. Toure also finished with the fourth-highest yards per reception mark (19.5). His 11.8 yards per target trailed only Jameson Williams and Treylon Burks in this class.

Toure was also a fiend with the ball in his hands, averaging 7.6 yards after the catch - the tenth highest mark in his class.

The Green Bay Packers selected WR Samori Toure with No. 259 in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Toure spent three years at Montana playing at the FCS level before spending his last season with Nebraska. He posted 48 receptions, 898 yards, and four touchdowns last season for the Cornhuskers. He will more than likely be a depth receiver for the Pack.
