It all started with the NFL Draft. Projected to go no later than the third-round, UConn running back Jordan Todman lasted until the sixth-round. So after watching twenty running backs come off the board before him, including three from the Big East, Todman (the 2010 Big East offensive player of the year) was finally selected by the San Diego Chargers and instantly noticed something new above his arm.
True, the San Diego Chargers missed the NFL playoffs for the first time in the last five years, but was the season really that bad? A 9-7 record isn’t the worst thing in the world and there were a lot of positives with the team last season. With a bit of fine tuning and some luck they could easily turn things around in 2011.
