Pick Analysis: Sometimes versatility is a curse as well as a blessing. Riddick came to Notre Dame in a time where the team had more impact running backs than receivers, so coaches moved him outside for his sophomore and junior seasons to take advantage of his athleticism in the slot. But as a senior, the team allowed him to spend more time at his more natural position of running back.





Riddick ran for over 4,000 yards in high school, while also earning all-state accolades in New Jersey as a defensive back as a sophomore. He was a reserve running back in his true freshman season, playing in all 12 games and starting the finale against Stanford, totaling 160 yards on 29 carries (5.5 per) while also serving as the team?s primary kick returner (22.9-year average). Riddick missed four games with a sprained right ankle as a sophomore, but started eight of the nine games played at receiver (40-414, 3 TD). He again sat two games due to a hamstring injury in 2011, starting nine of the 11 games in which he was healthy enough to play (38-436, 3 TD). Riddick split time in the backfield with Cierre Wood as a senior, and ultimately saw 190 carries for 917 yards and five touchdowns. As a pass catcher, he caught 36 passes for 370 yards and two touchdowns.
