Overview

Todman is a downhill runner in a scat back's body that may lack the size to take the pounding at the next level. He quickly finds openings and has the burst to exploit seams, but he initiates contact in the open field which could get him injured in the NFL. He also lacks experience as a receiver and was regularly on the sidelines on third down. However, he took a kick to the house in college and could make an immediate impact as a return man. Todman may not be a bell cow, but he is a shifty back that could sneak into Day 2.


Strengths

Lacks the lower body strength to push the pile in short yardage situations. Looks to bounce the ball to the outside too often. Takes too many big hits and will go down easy at times. Runs poor routes and has a small catching radius. Struggles to block bigger defenders in pass protection.

Weaknesses

Todman plays bigger than his measurables. Possesses good vision, explodes through the hole and flashes a second gear to break a long run. Shows a bit of a wiggle in the hole and makes the first guy miss. Lowers his shoulder well and generally falls forward. Very productive in college.

Grade

5.9
