WR Calvin Ridley Highlights – Video Scouting Report

This man is a first round NFL Draft pick.

The tape starts off with him adjusting to a deep ball, settling down and protecting the flight path as he cradles the baby. That’s NFL level awareness.

He already looks comfortable splitting double teams. That’s good. He’s not going to get many one-up looks in the NFL with his metrics.

That being said, everybody in Alabama knows he’s getting the ball, how does he get so open!!?!?!?

Speed, acceleration, catch radius, ability to adjust to the rock, quick feet, “spreads” when protecting the ball, adjust early in route to thrown balls AND has STICKY hands.

Enjoy the ride, it ends in the first round for some lucky NFL team.
