Strengths:

  • Hard hitter
  • Sheds blockers
  • Physical and tough
  • Good on special teams

Analysis: Perryman is a physical linebacker who enjoys laying his pads on opposing ball carriers.  Perryman excels at reading the backs running lanes, and sheds offensive lineman’s blocks well to get to the ball.  He will com in right away and play on special teams.

Need to Improve:

  • Coverage skills
  • Leverage at point of attack
  • Not elite speed for position
  • Lacks lateral quickness

Analysis: Perryman can lay the boom on ball carriers, but he will be a liability for a defense in passing situations.  He will struggle when isolated with a WR/TE/RB in space.  Definitely not the quickest linebacker, Perryman will need to read the defenses to succeed at the next level (something he does very well).

Round Prediction: 3
