Overview:

Ridley finished his career at Alabama by playing in 44 career games, where he had 224 receptions, for 2781 receiving yards, and 19 receiving touchdowns. He has good speed, he has proven to be a scoring machine, a good pass catcher, and is sure handed. He was a go-to receiver for Alabama, and was a dynamic play maker. He is a good route runner, a good deep threat, and a good blocking receiver. He makes defenders miss with ease, he breaks tackles, is tough to take down, and consistently beats his defender. On the other hand, he is not the tallest wide receiver, and while he has good speed he does not have elite receiver speed, but neither of those two things hurt his game. With that said, I expect Ridley to be one of the first 3 receivers taken, and a 1st-round pick when it is all said and done.
