Stevan Ridley - LSU (HT: 5-11¼ - WT: 225)
Combine 40: 4.66 - Position Rank: 24 of 35

Positives: Good size, has a muscular frame... Holds onto the football, no ball security issues... Cuts well in traffic... Tough between the tackles, doesn't go down easy... Strong runner, finishes his runs well... Great leg drive, really pushes the pile... Good vision... Patient runner, lets his blockers set up in front of him... Good blocker, gets his hands into defenders... Produced at a high level against top level SEC defenses... Consistent, had a touchdown in 10 of LSU's 13 games in 2010... Should be a solid contributor on special teams units... Does a great job of always moving up field, doesn't waste much time going east/west.

Negatives: Slow, struggles to get to the edge... Won't break big plays, only had one play go for over 30 yards in his entire collegiate career... Not creative in the open field, lacks elusiveness... Not explosive... Below average receiver out of the backfield... Knee injury in 2009... Low ceiling due to his lack of speed... Likely just a short yardage back who will be used in goal line situations.
