Stevan Ridley to New England Patriots: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Dylan MacNamara@@DylanMacNamaraSenior Writer IApril 29, 2011

Stevan Ridley had one very productive season at LSU, rushing for nearly 1,200 yards last season. 

The Patriots have a crowded backfield with BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead, but Ridley offers a more physical presence in the mold of Antoine Smith.

Ridley's pick won't get much attention, however, as Ryan Mallett was selected one pick after the former LSU Tiger.
