Kyle Padron, Brandon Kaufman Leave Eastern Washington For 2013 NFL Draft


As the deadline approaches for underclassmen to declare for the 2013 NFL, the Eastern Washington Eagles have seen two of their most productive offensive stars forgo their final years of eligibility to go to the pros.

Quarterback Kyle Padron and wide receiver Brandon Kaufman have declared for the 2013 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 232-pound Padron was a transfer from SMU and had a solid season at Eastern Washington in 2012. Padron threw for 2,491 yards,  17 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Kaufman benefited from having Padron throw the ball in his direction. He hauled in 93 passes for 1,850 yards and 16 touchdowns. At 6-foot-5, 215-pounds, Kaufman needs to add some bulk but his height will intrigue some people.

Unfortunately for Padron, there are some doubts that he will be drafted.
