Former NFL Scout Discusses If Alabama’s Offense Hurt Ridley’s Draft Stock
Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley is being regarded as one of the top receiver prospects in the upcoming draft, but did his lack of production last season hurt his stock?
If you watched Ridley last season, he was the Crimson Tide's biggest target when they passed the ball in his direction, but many NFL scouts believe his 63 receptions for 957 yards and five touchdowns was enough to make him a first round prospect, but in a more passing offensive scheme, he could have went as high as top 10.
Dan Shonka, former scout for the Eagles, Redskins, Chiefs and general manager/scout for Ourlads' NFL Scouting, joined The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss if the lack of passing hurt Ridley's draft stock and what team could the wide receiver fit in the upcoming draft.
He also discussed Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield possibly going number one to the Cleveland Browns, the difference between UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield, and also where does Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick rank overall in the draft.
