Pos: 
Nice-sized receiver who started for Georgia the past two seasons and caught a career-best 44 passes for 570 yards and nine TDs as a senior. Uses his frame to his advantage, gets vertical over defenders and boxes them out to protect the pass. Effectively makes the reception on crossing patterns, snatches the ball out of the air with his hands and plays strong football. Runs solid routes, quickly gets into breaks and uses his hands to separate from defenders. Does not shy away from contact and plays physical football.
Neg: 
Lacks true deep speed and a second gear. Marginally productive throughout his Georgia career.
Analysis: 
Ridley combines solid size and dependable hands with next-level athleticism. He needs work on his game but comes with upside, and Ridley could develop into a dependable third receiver in the NFL in due time.
