Riley Ridley Youth Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys ,  | Age: 22Height / Weight: 6-2 / 200 lbsProjected Draft Status: Top 50NFL Comparison: Calvin RidleyCollege StatisticsPlayer OverviewRiley Ridley’s name may sound familiar; that’s because he’s the younger brother of Atlanta Falcons’ receiver Calvin Ridley, who was a first round pick in 2018. He’s an inch taller and 10 pounds heavier than his older brother, who was in the running for Rookie of the Year early this season before getting eclipsed by the likes of Saquon Barkley and Baker Mayfield. The older Ridley brother still went 64-821-10 in his rookie year, still a very impressive stat line. Riley doesn’t have the college stats of some other top-ranked receivers, but the talent and bloodline is there. In a run-first Georgia offense, Riley was the go-to receiver this season. His breakout game, though, was in the 2017 CFP Championship game against Alabama — his brother’s team. Calvin has actually gone on the record saying his younger brother might be more talented than him. Regardless www.redskinsauthorizedshops.com , he will be a high pick in the 2019 Draft, in no small part due to the recent success of his brother.StrengthsTouchdown machine — caught a touchdown on 9 of 42 receptions in 2018, a ridiculous 21% touchdown rateGood height and bulk for the receiver positionNuanced and precise route runnerStrong hands; showcased he can pluck ball from the air when covered vs. MissouriNFL bloodlines; brother Calvin Ridley is a budding star for the FalconsWeaknessesDoesn’t have a top-end gear to break away from the defenseNot as physical or nasty as you’d like; got pretty much erased by LSU’s Greedy WilliamsLack of opportunity and production in Georgia’s offense — barely over 1,000 career receiving yards MediaHow He’d Fit on the RedskinsThere a lot of good receivers in the 2019 Draft, and while I don’t think Ridley is even a top 5 prospect at the position this year, he may be the most ‘sure thing’. That’s mainly because his brother, only a year and a half older than him, is already a successful player in the NFL.The Redskins have not drafted well when it comes to first round receivers: Josh Docston Washington Redskins Womens T-Shirt , barring an unlikely major breakout season in 2019, is the most recent example. Because of this, perhaps Washington’s biggest need is a true “#1” receiver. Ridley may not have the highest ceiling of all wideouts in the draft, but he may be the best option for a team that can’t afford to continue gambling.I like Ridley’s route running and size most, and legit receiving talent would do wonders for this offense in 2019.After Signs Of Progress, Redskins Rushers Were Grounded Against The Colts It was a long day for the Redskins offense in their match-up against the Indianapolis Colts. Washington could not move the football down the field against a defense that, truthfully, is not as good as the Redskins made the Colts look. The Redskins gave up extensive pressure in pass-protection off of stunts and regularly failed to block defenders at the line of scrimmage Washington Redskins Hats , resulting in a disastrous day on the ground. It was a terrible game in the trenches, a seemingly catastrophic reversion to last-season form on the ground, a performance that is confusing to the majority of those witnessing the contest after the Redskins’ positive steps forward in the running game just one week ago from Adrian Peterson. The Redskins had just 22 running yards on 16 carries by their running backs on Sunday, and in fact were led in rushing by wide receiver Jamison Crowder. In an attempt to establish a ground game early, Washington ran jet-sweep looks to deceive the eyes of the Colts defense and beat them on the edge. Twice the Redskins handed it off to the receiver on the sweep, netting them 29 yards on the two handoffs. However, the look was run on multiple occasions without the sweep, but it did not move Colt defenders out of the tackle box. The Colts remained disciplined defensively Washington Redskins Womens Hoodie , and the Redskins not only didn’t get the desired outcome they wanted but got dominated up front in the process. The biggest gaffe of the day was a third and one late in the first quarter, where Washington called a fake jet sweep and pitched it to Chris Thompson who lost 3 yards on the play. A situation that called for a north/south run or play-action, Washington got too cute and killed a critical drive in the first half. The Redskins play the Green Bay Packers next, and Chris Thompson perhaps said it best post game, “It’s very important. I mean, its Aaron Rodgers coming in, if we don’t have it together then we get embarrassed again.”Thompson’s message was not just for his teammates, but indirectly to Jay Gruden as well. As one of the team’s leaders Womens Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys , Thompson would never blame his head coach blatantly and publicly, but overall Coach Gruden was out of character for the majority of the game, and I am sure Jay holds himself to a high standard. He has to get this offense, who has not scored a touchdown in six quarters, back on course immediately. Custom New York Jets Jerseys
