Kirk Bohls released this week’s nine things and one crazy prediction yesterday.
His lead item was on Hassan Ridgeway’s chances in the upcoming NFL draft:
The NFL draft stock of Longhorns defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway may be soaring and promises to only go up after he performs at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. “He’s got some pretty good tape,” one league scout told me. “And he’ll have some times where he’s just out of reach of making a play. He’s a talented pass rusher (with a lot of) potential, too. NFL teams like him more than people think.” The scout said he thinks Ridgeway will go as high as the second round.
