UCF WR Breshad Perriman "will go in the first round of this year's draft, but his route running and hands are issues right now," according to NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The UCF prospect hauled in 50 of 99 targets thrown his way, with some of the incompletions blamed on his poor route running. Perriman dropped eight balls with a drop percentage of 13.8 percent. Zierlein notes that Perriman's drop rate was "far and away the worst of any of the top receivers in this year's draft."

NFL Media's Gil Brandt ranks UCF WR Breshad Perriman as the No. 10 overall prospect in this class, with Louisville WR DeVante Parker at No. 11.

The ranking is only one spot apart, but it is noteworthy to point out whenever Perriman is ranked before Parker as it breaks groupthink. Brandt lists Amari Cooper (3) as the top receiver and Kevin White second (4). Jaelen Strong rounds out the top five at No. 21 overall.

An NFL analytics staffer said he wouldn't rank UCF WR Breshad Perriman as high as Mel Kiper [No. 9 overall] for three reasons.

Those reasons? The staffer said Perriman dropped too many balls, has a troublesome injury history and doesn't run as fast on the field as he does on the track. Perriman, who posted 40-yard dash times of 4.24 and 4.27 at his pro day, ranked as the No. 3 receiver in the class according to Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score metric, which compared him to Kenny Britt and Darrell Jackson. Perriman put up stats with and without Blake Bortles, it's important to note.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman "is a big, fast, strong receiver with a great attitude who seems to be just getting the grasp of things, which should be a scary thought for all NFL defensive backs under 6-feet or slower than 4.25 seconds in 40 yards," according to NFLDraftScout.com's Frank Cooney.

"Perriman continues to show improvement as he learns to harness his rare combination of size and speed," Cooney wrote. "Excellent pick with upside." The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder Perriman, who posted 40-yard dash times of 4.24 and 4.27 at his pro day, is the son of 10-year NFL veteran wide receiver Brett Perriman. "As a big receiver you have to go up and get the ball at its highest point, you have to be able to wall off defenders, you have to be able to block and you have to be able to also kind of shrink your mentality as a smaller receiver as well," Perriman said at combine when asked how being a big receiver helps him.

ESPN's Todd McShay writes that UCF WR Breshad Perriman's "ball skills concern me, specifically his high drop rate of 14 percent (anything above 8 percent worries me with prospects) and the fact that he doesn't appear to be a natural pass-catcher."

"The reason for his big-time elevation on our draft board is his ability to make plays down the field," McShay wrote. Perriman, who posted 40-yard dash times of 4.24 and 4.27 at his pro day, ranked as the No. 3 receiver in the class according to Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score metric.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman had an official visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Pro Football Talk.

With Perriman's stock on the rise, he could be a target for WR-needy teams in the first round. It's possible that Perriman could be off the board by the time Pittsburgh picks. The Steelers --who own the No.22 overall pick-- already have a stable of capable pass catchers, with Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, Markus Wheaton, and recently signed Darrius Heyward-Bey. The UCF prospect does offer a nice combination of size and speed, but with the recent retirement Troy Polamalu, there could be more pressing needs in their secondary.

CBS Sports' Frank Cooney believes UCF WR Breshad Perriman is the best fit for the Ravens at No. 26 overall.

With Steve Smith and Marlon Brown sitting atop the depth chart, you know Baltimore is going to pop a receiver early. "Perriman might have put himself out of range for Baltimore after his 4.25 40-yard dash at his pro day, but his combination of size, speed and upside is an ideal fit in the Ravens' offense," Cooney wrote. Every CBS analyst has Baltimore taking a wide receiver at No. 26. Pete Prisco agrees on Perriman, Dane Brugler mocks Dorial Green-Beckham to Baltimore and Rob Rang currently sees the Ravens taking Jaelen Strong.

On top of visiting the Lions and Eagles, UCF WR Breshad Perriman has trips scheduled to see the Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans.

Perriman could not complete his Combine workout and posted a sub-4.3 forty at his pro day, so it makes sense why so many teams want to get a closer look. Perriman's projection skyrocketed after the pro day. Per PFF, his drop rate was near 14 percent, but Perriman was an asset over the middle of the field and in the deeper portions of the defense.
Apr 6 - 8:42 AM

UCF WR Breshad Perriman is visiting the Eagles on Thursday, according to Mike Florio.

Florio adds "it's one of 18 pre-draft visits/private workouts for Perriman." Perriman just finished a visit with the Lions on Wednesday. The UCF receiver has great long speed for any receiver at any size. However, there are drop issues, as his drop rate was around 14-percent in 2014. Teams might view these as concentration drops and are fixable, but negative drop rates have a tendency to carry over.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman is visiting the Lions on Wednesday.

We would be shocked to see Perriman go to Detroit in the first-round, with the team drafting Eric Ebron last year with money invested in Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate. Perriman posted a ridiculous forty time at his pro-day (4.25) and should be consistently projected in the first-round.
Apr 1 - 12:42 PM

UCF WR Breshad Perriman moved up in NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock's position rankings into a dead heat for the No. 4 receiver slot.

Perriman ran a ridiculous 4.25 40-yard dash at his pro day last week, pushing his value in Mayock's estimation into a tie with Louisville's DeVante Parker. Mayock believes White, Cooper and Perriman and Parker will go in the top 20 of the draft while Arizona State's Jaelen Strong will go at the bottom of the first round. Perriman ranked as the No. 3 receiver in the class according to Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score metric.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman ranked as the No. 3 receiver in the class according to Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score.

"Perriman was a consistently productive receiver for the Knights, including a stellar junior season despite a huge drop-off at quarterback from Blake Bortles to Justin Holman," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "Perriman enters the draft as an underclassman, has an impressive 19.5 yards per catch average, and his other Playmaker numbers are solid. He put up 40-yard times of 4.24 and 4.27 at his pro day on Wednesday." The system offered Kenny Britt and Darrell Jackson as similar historical prospects to Perriman. College Football Focus recently passed along that Perriman recorded a drop rate of 14 percent during the 2014 season. Josh Norris mocks Perriman to the Browns at No. 19.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman recorded a drop rate of 14 percent during the 2014 season, according to College Football Focus.

Drops are always subjective, but PFF sides on the receiver's side when charting NFL games. As does Rotoworld's Greg Peshek. To come up with the figure, CFF added catches (50) plus drops (8) to find the catchable passes number. Perriman posted a blazing forty time and did his best work on vertical routes. Poor dropped rates carried over from the 2013 season to rookie's first NFL seasons last year. Josh Norris recently mocked Perriman to the Browns at No. 19.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman clocked a sensational forty between 4.19 and 4.27, depending on the watch, at the school's pro day, according to NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt.

That is huffing it for a 6-foot-1 3/4, 212-pounder. Officially, the time is being reported as between 4.24 and 4.27. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert were amongst those taking in the workout. Perriman added a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-7 broad jump and 18 reps on the bench press. Perriman (32-inch arms and 9 5/8-inch hands) "caught the ball better than expected during his positional workout," Brandt reported. "Some people thought that he didn't have very good hands, but you didn't see that today in his workout. He also showed very good change-of-direction skills. The knock on Perriman is that he is not the hardest-working player, but he helped himself a lot at UCF's pro day and should be a low first-round to high second-round draft choice."

UCF WR Breshad Perriman is "very well-liked in NFL circles with his size/athleticism combination," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He is very well-liked in NFL circles with his size/athleticism combination so teams are eager to put testing numbers next to his name to see how it matches up with his film," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder strained his hamstring right before the combine, and wasn't cleared to perform in Indianapolis. Perriman plans to do a full workout for evaluators on March 25th.
