Scouting Report

Evaluated 11/30/2022

Allen Trieu National Recruiting Analyst


Power-5 Starter


Desmond Ridder Atlanta Falcons

Athletic prospect who can make plays with his feet. Uses that athleticism to navigate the pocket and elude the rush. Can run, but will look to throw when he breaks contain. Throws with excellent touch. Drops passes into a bucket, gives his receivers opportunities to make plays on the ball and leads them away from coverage on vertical routes or corner routes. Productive in high school and saw some good programs but did not face many teams with D1 prospects in the secondary so he will have to adjust to the speed and windows shrinking quicker in college. Has good but not arm strength and velocity. Is going to fill in more in college and add some of that though. Far from a finished product but has a lot of good developmental tools, is a gamer, and mobility makes him fit well with today's offenses. Should develop into a Power Five starter and possible pro.
