The San Diego Chargers had other positions of need, but they got a decent value here with Kendall Reyes.
Reyes fits nicely at defensive end in their 3-4 defense, but I didn’t view the position as a glaring weakness. Reyes will have to complete with two other young defensive ends, Corey Luigit and Vaughn Martin, for playing time and may have a hard time cracking the 1st-team unit.
UConn junior running back Jordan Todman has filed his paperwork to be evaluated by the NFL Draft advisory committee.
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.
