1. Theo Riddick

All offseason, Lions players bragged about the improvement Riddick made, and said he looked like a young Darren Sproles or Reggie Bush in the making.

With Detroit seeing plenty of injured players on offense including Bush, Riddick has been forced to step up and impress in his second year. He’s caught touchdowns, and made a few beautiful catches in London, looking like an x-factor for the offense the more he gets involved.

Riddick’s early evolution makes him even more dangerous once the bigger name talent gets back on the field.
