Draft Rewind 2011 - Stevan Ridley - New England Patriots

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about STEVAN RIDLEY: LSU, 5112 225 4.64. Junior entry. Started nine games in career. An I-formation back who is a straight ahead north/south runner who can pick his way through traffic. Drives legs on contact. Generally gets what’s blocked. Not always a creative runner, but runs hard. Picks up his feet and can step through tackles. Downhill with zone cut back vision. Lowers his shoulder and will hit and spin off the tackler. Can slip tacklers or make a defender miss in space. Skips through the line and can make a linebacker grab for air. Explosive into the hole at times and flashes a quick cut and burst up the field. Combines different running styles to gain yards. A tough kid who can break tackles. Keeps his shoulders square to the line of scrimmage and runs to daylight. A natural hand catcher who is rarely used in that role. 2010 stats: 1147 yds, 4.6 ypc, 15 TDs, 11 receptions for 61 yds. OSR:20/36. Fourth/fifth round. (A-31 7/8, H-9 1/4, BP-18, SS-4.21).
