Earlier this week, Lions backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky compared Theo Riddick to Darren Sproles.
Fellow running back Joique Bell didn't go that route, but he served Riddick quite a compliment nonetheless.
"He looks like a Reggie (Bush)," Bell said of Riddick on Tuesday. "Just some of the moves you see him do in practice against some of the linebackers. We sit back in the meeting room, we sit back we laugh. He gets them every time with the same move, like you can't stop it. You can't stop it.
"He keeps doing what he's been doing, he'll be a Pro Bowler in no time. I was thinking down the line, but he definitely has the potential to be a great running back in this league."
This Riddick buzz is really starting to build, but let's be realistic here. Riddick was sparsely used as a rookie and is clearly behind two running backs in Detroit. He may have Reggie Bush -type skills, but the Lions already have a similar player: Reggie Bush. And as I wrote yesterday, Bell should see more work than last season. Riddick is worth a look in dynasty leagues, but at the moment, he is getting crowded out in this backfield by a couple of players who are under contract through 2016.
