Theo Riddick: Video Highlights for Former Notre Dame RB

After a star-studded high school career as a running back in New Jersey, Theo Riddick headed off to Notre Dame with the hopes of becoming the next great running back for the Irish.

It didn't quite work out that way.

Riddick ran into a numbers game at Notre Dame, joining the Irish the same season as perhaps the most highly touted running back in the high school class of 2009, Cierre Wood. Notre Dame moved Riddick to slot receiver during his sophomore and junior seasons before switching him back to running back for his senior season.

Riddick had a very nice senior season, splitting carries with both Wood and George Atkinson III. Riddick rushed for 917 yards and caught passes for 370 more.

That versatility will get Riddick a look from several NFL teams. He'll either be a Day 3 choice in the draft, or a highly sought-after free agent after the draft.

At 5'11, 200 pounds, Riddick has decent size but lacks the top-end speed you want from an NFL runner. Riddick doesn't have the musculature that you'd hope for either, but he definitely showed enough potential over the course of his Notre Dame career to get a look from an NFL club.

Let's take a look at some video that shows off Riddick's potential.
