2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Jordan Todman, RB, Connecticut
Standout Connecticut running back Jordan Todman chose to bypass his senior season for the 2011 NFL Draft. The 2010 Big East Offensive Player of the Year, Todman is coming off his finest season with the Huskies.
In 12 games last year, Todman rushed for 1,695 yards (5.1 per carry) and 14 touchdowns. He added 19 receptions to give him a two-year total of 40 catches. In '09, Todman found the end zone 14 times and rushed for 1,188 yards.
Expected draft placement
Todman's size will probably result in a third-round selection in the draft, but he could very well be a steal even with that placement.
At that stage of the draft it is tough to predict which teams could be interested in him, but he reportedly met with the New England Patriots for dinner.
