2018 NFL Draft Prospect: Calvin Ridley

On January 1, Calvin Ridley and the Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Clemson Tigers in the Sugar Bowl. Since arriving in Tuscaloosa, there has been plenty of expectation for when he’d eventually enter the draft, but how will Ridley compare to fellow Alabama alumni when he makes the leap to the NFL?


As a high school recruit, there was no lack of hype for Calvin Ridley. According to 247Sports, Ridley was a five-star recruit and the No. 1 wide receiver in the 2015 class. He was the sixth-best prospect in the state of Florida and the 12th-rated prospect in the country in the 247 Composite Rankings. As you’d expect with the No. 1 receiver, Ridley had offers from nearly every relevant college program, but he committed to Alabama prior to his senior season.
