BIO: Three-year starter who led the team in receiving as a senior, posting 51/597/7 after almost identical numbers the prior year when he posted 51/677/6.
POSITIVES: Tall, rangy pass catcher with solid size/speed numbers. Adequate route runner who stays low exiting breaks, extends his hands and offers the quarterback a nice target. Possesses soft and sure hands with the ability to snatch the ball out of the air. Adjusts to the errant throw, stays focused and has the ability to pull the ball out of a crowd. Good eye/hand coordination.
NEGATIVES: Not overly physical and will drop the ball if he hears footsteps. Does not display the strong hands and consistently lets the pass get inside him.
ANALYSIS: A prospect who flashed ability the past two seasons, Rideau has potential as a fourth receiver at the next level. Must turn it up a notch and take his game to another level, though he has shown patterns of improvement since his sophomore campaign.
