STRENGTHS - Riddick gets up to top speed quickly and displays the ability to make himself small to get through tight spaces. He showcases good balance and the ability to bounce off tackles when running inside. He runs very precise routes and displays the natural hands needed to consistently pluck balls outside of his frame. He is a willing pass blocker that does a good job of playing with proper base and initiating contact with his hands.
WEAKNESSES - Riddick is not an explosive athlete, as he lacks the burst and top end speed to get through holes before they close or stretch the defense once out in space. He displays limited COD, as he is sluggish getting out of his cuts and lacks efficiency in his movements. When he is unable to get up to full speed he struggles to break tackles and is too easily taken down by the initial defender. While he is a willing blocker, his lack of strength and physicality at the POA limits his effectiveness.
SUMMARY - Theo Riddick is a classic "jack of all trades, master of none." While he shows a willingness to run inside he struggles to change speeds effectively and is too easily taken down by the initial tackler. He is a polished route runner for a RB and displays excellent hands, but he lacks the speed and burst to be a threat to take the top off the defense once out in space. When asked to pass block, he is quick to diagnose and attack his assignment with proper base and leverage, but he lacks the bulk and strength to consistently sustain his blocks. Riddick will likely get a training camp opportunity because if he can add bulk to his frame he could develop into a versatile third down back and special teams player, but he as a result of his athletic limitations he is unlikely to be drafted and will need to find a home through free agency.
