The Miami Dolphins held a pre-draft visit and workout with University of Central Florida wide receiver Breshad Perriman. This news comes courtesy of Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald.
Perriman is 6 feet, 2 inches and according to Jeff Hyde (Twitter: @Jeff__Hyde), an analyst for the PhinManiacs.com draft guide, Perriman has a great combination of size and explosiveness off the line that will make cornerbacks begin the play on their heels. Despite having a big frame, he also has the speed to blow past the coverage and make some acrobatic catches on tough throws.
According to Hyde, Perriman isn't the most precise route runner. He tends to round off his routes and doesn’t do a good job at selling his routes off of his breaks. He allows quicker cornerbacks to get inside of him as he tends to wait for the ball instead of coming back to it to make a catch. Another weakness? His hands aren't the greatest.
Hyde describes him as someone who has the talent to succeed but ultimately, could end up proving to be more stressful than anything due to his glaring weaknesses. Perriman will likely be drafted in the first round and may perhaps slide into the early second but we'll see within a few years whether or not he was really worth being drafted that high.
