Illinois State edge rusher David Perkins believes his game translates nicely to the NFL.
Perkins, a former stud recruit and an Ohio State transfer, logged 69 tackles, 12 TFL and 8.5 sacks last season. "I was behind [Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker] Ryan Shazier. I decided to transfer," he said. "I wanted the opportunity to play more and put my career in my own hands. I transferred to Illinois State and I’ve led the team in sacks every year I’ve been here." Perkins had 64 tackles, 12 TFL, eight sacks and one interception in 2014. The 6-foot-3, 240-pounder has run the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds. Perkins will put his speed on display at a Pro Day workout on March 8. Jan 27 - 6:39 PM
