NFL Comparison: Calvin Ridley

Chris Olave may have the lowest ceiling of the top five wideouts, but he certainly has the highest floor. Chris Olave is pretty complete in that he has most of the route tree down. The first two players we discussed hardly have a route tree, so that is a huge win for Olave.

Beyond that, he flashed the adequate athleticism to be a player who can get that quick separation but also can get deep and stack defenders.

Still, Olave is athletic, but not very big, nor is he elusive. He is the worst after the catch of this group and will not bring much when it comes to tackle-breaking.

Similar to Calvin Ridley, he can be very productive in the NFL, but it may be as a high-end number two. When someone like Julio Jones can take the physical press cornerbacks away from Olave and he can up space like Ridley did he is lethal, but he may struggle if he asked to be the top dog on a team right away.

Still, rumors are that he may go as high as pick 11, so it is hard to see the Chicago Bears found a reunion with Justin Fields’ old teammate.
