Fantasy Impact:

These are fantastic numbers from Ridder, who used the Combine to demonstrate his athleticism. The highly-regarded prospect's 40-yard dash time was the fastest among active quarterbacks while his broad jump was the third-best at the position since 2003. These metrics certainly aren't everything, but they still show prospective teams that Ridder offers premier athleticism and mobility. Currently, NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein views Ridder as an eventual NFL starter with confidence, leadership qualities, and poise both inside and outside the pocket.
