"He's an excellent route runner," wrote NFL Network draft expert Daniel Jeremiah. "He accelerates into the break point before snapping off and generating separation. He has strong hands to pluck low balls and tracks the deep ball naturally. Ridley is not a physical, 50-50-ball type of player -- his game is more about speed and quickness than strength and power."
"He steps in Day One and takes some pressure off of Julio Jones," said NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock.
"Ultra quick, fluid, explosive route runner," one scout told Bob McGinn of BobMcGinnFootball.com. "Can run the whole [route] tree. Has vertical speed and excellent hands. Polished player. Average size and strength."
Said another scout: "He's not dynamic, but he knows how to get open and get deep. Very competitive player."
