Overview

While Perry has good height, he is lacking in bulk as well as playing strength. He plays the game fast and shows the acceleration to run by defenders on go routes down the seam and can adjust to catch the ball in stride. He is not real competitive to the ball when going over the middle and in traffic and will let the ball get into his body which allows defenders to knock the ball loose. He tends to run sloppy routes and will need to learn how to set defenders up to run underneath patterns. He can develop with added strength but looks more like a late-round type, if not a free agent.


Strengths

Perry is a tall receiver with great speed. Shows the burst to get separation off the line and has a second gear to stretch the field on go routes. Catches the ball in stride and is a threat to gain yards after the catch.

Weaknesses

Perry is too thin and struggles to release clean and beat press coverage at the line. Catches the ball too close to his body and is susceptible to drops. Does not look comfortable going over the middle and will not fight for errant passes. Runs imprecise routes too often.

Grade

2.8
