2018 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about CALVIN RIDLEY: Alabama, 6004 189 4.45. Junior entry and three-year starter from Coconut Creek, FL who is the most NFL ready receiver in the draft. He is a special blend of size, speed, and playmaking talent. A top level athlete who runs routes and plays the game with balance and body control. He is a polished route runner who has the ability to work himself open on all three levels of the route tree. He eats grass off the line of scrimmage when played in off man coverage. Does a great job of getting his head and body snapped back around on stop and hitch routes. Shows suddenness in and out of breaks creating noticeable separation. Tracks the ball effortlessly into his hands, plucking it out of the air. Has a significant catch radius utilizing his athletic ability to contort and adjust to make the most difficult of catches. Possesses a good catch and run ability and is a threat to score when hit in stride. His thin frame allows him to be jammed at the line of scrimmage versus good press man corners. He has had focus drops over his career. Tries to create a big play after the catch sometimes and fails, instead of heading north and south to get what yardage he can. Bigger stronger defenders in the NFL will have no problem taking him to the ground on first contact. He is a sure fire first round talent who will develop into a very consistent and reliable target. His incredible smooth and refined route running skills combined with his elite ability to create separation, make him a valuable asset in this league. Add those skills on top of his explosive speed and athletic ability and you have a potential star. 2017 stats: 63-967, 15.4 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:30/45. First round. (A-31 5/8, H-9 1/8, VJ-31, SS-4.41).
