Jordan Todman could be an early entry

Todman isn’t an elite prospect, but it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to go pro. This is a weak class for running backs, and he could¬†conceivably¬†come off the board as high as the 3rd round.

He has the ability to immediately help a team as a backup running back and on special teams (he has experience returning kicks). He probably will never been a feature back in the NFL, but he has the speed and quickness to be a nice change-of-pace back.

Defensive tackle Kendall Reyes also filed his paperwork. Reyes is athletic, but slightly undersized, and it would be a mistake for him to leave school. Should he enter the draft, there is no guarantee that he would hear his name called.
