Calvin Ridley burst onto the scene in 2015 as a freshman with 89 catches for over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns, as Alabama won the national championship. As the Tide turned more to a run-heavy offense, Ridley's numbers dipped a bit, but his confidence remains high that he's the best wide receiver in this draft.
"I just feel I'm a great route-runner. I take my time in my routes. I'm pretty patient in my routes. I identify coverages pretty good and I get in and out of my breaks pretty good and I beat defenders pretty well. I create separation,” said Ridley.
That separation coming in part because of his six-foot frame paired with 4.43 speed. Ridley would come to the Bills as a new weapon for his old offensive coordinator, with Brian Daboll holding that position for ‘Bama during last year's national title season.
"I love coach Daboll. He does a great job. You got to do with what you got and I feel like he calls plays really good. We did pretty good at executing the plays. We could've done a lot better, but it was good play-calling,” said Ridley.
Most agree with Ridley that he'll be the first wideout off the board, slotted around a mid-to later first round selection.
On Thursday, we flip over to the defense and profile Florida defensive tackle Taven Bryan.
