Former Georgia wide receiver Riley Ridley, the younger brother of Falcons wide receiver Calvin Ridley, recently declared for the NFL draft after his junior season.
Calvin Ridley had some advice for the younger Ridley.
“I told him to work hard and that he’ll know how to do everything they want him to do,” Calvin Ridley told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday. “He’s going to be ready for everything they put out there in front of him.
“I just coached him up on what’s going to happen. He’s got a good support system around him with the agency and the people around him.”
Calvin Ridley just concluded his rookie season with the Falcons after being the 26th overall selection last year out of Alabama. He finished with 64 catches for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Riley Ridley led the Bulldogs with 44 catches for 570 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
The NFL draft is set for April 25-27 in Nashville. The scouting combine is Feb. 26 through March 4.
