I've seen people Mid who have given Druddigon a Rocky Helmet, which when paired with Rough Skin does quite a bit of damage. It should be noted that this Druddigon employed a Stealth Rock + Dragon Tail strategy to weaken several Pokemon at once and gain momentum (as it was as serving as a lead) so a Choice item would have been a hindrance, more than anything. While Leftovers or a Life Orb might have seemed more smart, I think the Rocky Helmet was the best choice; it allowed Druddigon to have the opponent think twice about attacking with contact moves, especially if said physical sweeper was frail, boosting Druddigon's longevity.
