NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock said he "put the [UCF WR Breshad Perriman] tape on about three weeks ago and I almost fell over."
"And then I had a bunch of people tell me he didn't have good hands and, boy, do I disagree with that, even though he's got more drops than he should," Mayock said. "There's kind of a way to interpret that. A wide receiver who has too many drops should have bad hands, right? Well, I look at his hands and say he makes acrobatic catches, he makes high-point catches, he makes contested catches. However, once in a while he drops an easy ball, but I think he's a natural hands catcher. I think he's got height and weight. I think he runs good routes. To me, he looks like a first-round wide receiver. I need to see what he's going to run this week. If he runs 4.50, 4.48, 4.51, people are going to be looking at him as a potential first-round wide receiver, and they should." NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt recently tweeted that Perriman is "ascending" and added that it would be "no surprise" if he went in Round 1.
