Overview:

Jordan Todman has outstanding production and was named the Big East offensive player of the year this past season. However, on tape, he doesn’t really stand out to me. He’s fast, as evidenced by his 4.4 time, but he is a tentative runner and he often gets brought down by arm tackles. I can’t see him being anything more than a change of pace back in the NFL.
