Theo RIddick isn't a player who is going to astound you with his speed, nor is he a running back who relies on power to force his way through bodies into the open field. However, he has the versatility and determination to remain on an NFL roster.
Riddick spent his time at wide receiver in his junior year but was switched to running back last season. This was his projected position coming out of high school, but the move was met with suspicion. He had posted decent stats as a wideout, and switching him deprived the Irish of another receiving weapon.
However, he justified his coaches' decision and put up even better numbers out of the backfield. Following this productive senior year, he will now move on to the NFL, hoping to make his mark there.
