In today’s NFL, most teams use running back’s in a rotational way since it’s so hard for just one guy to carry the load for an extended period of time. In a way, this makes backs like Todman very valuable to NFL Teams. Todman is a smaller, shifty back with elite vision and quickness. He’ll find success in the NFL by being a change of pace back with big play potential.
As an inside runner, Todman isn’t the best. He needs to have more patience and wait for a hole to open before he runs into the backs of his blockers. He isn’t quite strong enough to break the arm tackles of bigger defensive lineman.
