Overview

Ridley is bruising running back that could be effective between the tackles at the next level. He is a no nonsense runner that explodes through the holes and is very difficult to take down in the open field. He does not always play with a good pad level, but he keeps his legs churning and shows the ability to push the pile. He is not shifty enough to evade defensive backs in the second level, and he will not contribute in the passing game. Ridley can also contribute on special teams and could be picked in the fourth round.

Analysis

Strengths

Ridley is a big back with a deceptive burst. Possesses good vision and hits the hole hard. Downhill runner that has the strength to run over defenders. Secures the ball quickly and flashes an effective stiff arm. Plays mean and is a very capable blocker in pass protection.

Weaknesses

Does not have the speed to consistently break off big runs and lacks the lateral agility to make people miss in the open field. Runs too high at times limiting his power. Lacks experience as a receiver and struggles to turn and run after the catch. Inconsistent technique as a blocker in pass protection.
