Theo Riddick will step into the Lions locker room with a chance to make the team as a special teamer and a reserve third down back. Riddick doesn’t do anything really well, but he doesn’t struggle to do anything either. He can pass protect, catch the ball and carry the ball well enough, but won’t wow you doing anything.
This is the type of back that gets into a locker room trains and develops and can make an active roster as a well rounded reserve. He has Reggie Bush, Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell ahead of him so he will have that time to learn the pro game.
