For those that may have forgotten, Riddick was actually drafted by the 49ers in the ninth round of the 1991 draft. While he never played for the 49ers in the regular season, he did go on to play for the Falcons, Browns and Raiders.
He then became a scout with the Redskins, and was their director of player personnel for three seasons and then spent time in the Eagles front office before going into television in 2013.
