NFL Draft 2018: Calvin Ridley goes to Atlanta

Julio Jones gets a running mate in the ATL

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Alabama Celebration Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

With the 26th overall pick, the Atlanta Falcons selected wide receiver Calvin Ridley. He’ll join former Alabama receiver Julio Jones in one of the most prolific passing offenses in professional football.

The Falcons will be getting a receiver with exceptional route-running and change of direction skills. He’s fast and great at making crazy catches over people for jump balls. He’s a little on the slight side, but more than makes up for it with the rest of his game.

Roll Tide, Calvin. Go get some yards while Julio draws the double teams.
