The son of former NFL great Brett Perriman, Breshad Perriman may be an even better prospect and could be a lock to go in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Perriman definitely has some flaws teams will have to consider, but if scouts like a combination of size, speed and build, he’s the prospect they’re looking for. Perriman proved to be a consistent big-play threat at UCF and has the physical ability to transition to the next level successfully. There could be a few things holding him back, though, so let’s fully break down his ability and see what scouts are going to love or hate about him.

Strengths

  • Ran unofficial 4.22 40 at Pro Day/safe to say he’s sub 4.40 likely on true Indy Combine track
  • Big time down field threat who would benefit heavily in a vertical attack
  • Very quick in and out of his breaks
  • Effective over the middle on slants/crossing patterns
  • Managed successful final season despite weak QB play
  • Could have hit 1,600 yards with a better QB
  • Can create separation in space
  • Has the size/speed combo scouts covet

Weaknesses

  • Doesn’t offer much fight RAC without much open field
  • Can get a bit handsy when the ball is in the air
  • Collegiate competition was mediocre at best
  • Doesn’t put up a consistently strong effort in double coverage
  • Questions regarding his knowledge of the full route tree
  • Overall still fairly raw
  • Needs to work on consistency

Draft Range: 1st Round

Player Comparison: Jeremy Maclin
