UCF WR Breshad Perriman had a drop rate of 12.96% in 2014, according to PFF.

That is terrible. The sample size might be smaller than others, as Perriman dropped seven of 54 catchable passes, but PFF has a tendency to side with the receiver on what exactly is "catchable." Perriman would have generated more buzz if he worked out at the Combine and still has a shot at being a late first-round selection, but very poor drop rates tend to carry over to the NFL - at least early on.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes if UCF WR Breshad Perriman could potentially sneak into late Round 1 with a good pro day.

Perriman's pro day workout is scheduled for March 25. While the analyst believes the Golden Knight is a big play receiver, "he is a bit of a straight-line route runner and has displayed inconsistent ball skills." Perriman's pro day workout is crucial because he couldn't work out at the combine due to a minor injury. "One of Perriman's strengths is as a vertical threat, so how he performs in the 40-yard dash and vertical and broad jumps will be very important," Weidl wrote. "In addition, scouts will look for Perriman's ability to run the entire route tree, and he also will need to catch the ball well to help ease concerns about his drops." Weidl doesn't believe Perriman is a first-rounder based on tape.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman's pro day workout is scheduled for March 25.

Perriman was held out of the combine due to a minor injury. "Perriman is receiving some attention as a potential first-rounder, and to keep the hype train on track, a good workout is vital," noted NFL Media. "He is a big, physical receiver -- one of many in this class. One thing Perriman has had to have noticed: 'Big receivers' Amari Cooper, Dorial Green-Beckham, DeVante Parker, Jaelen Strong and Kevin White all ran faster than 4.50 in the 40 at the combine, and all but DGB were faster than 4.45." The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder, who recorded 50 catches for 1,044 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior before declaring for the draft, probably hopes to run in the mid-to-high 4.4s.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman "been a favorite of mine who I feel is a first-round talent," wrote ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"We won't see Perriman run until his pro day, but at 6-2 and 212 pounds, on the tape you see a sure-handed receiver who morphs into a running back with the ball in his hands," Kiper wrote. Perriman was held out of the combine due to a minor injury, but scouts will get a chance to check him out at the school's pro day on March 25. NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah ranks Perriman No. 33, and Gil Brandt recently labeled Perriman as one of the draft's fastest risers.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman will not work out at the NFL Combine, according to Gil Brandt.

Perriman is out with an injury and will work out at the school's pro day on March 25. Some have been projecting Perriman in the first-round, and he seems to be impressing more people who watch his tape. The lack of a Combine workout will slow that buzz, however. At least we will get measurements on Perriman's frame on Thursday.
Feb 19 - 11:14 AM

UCF WR Breshad Perriman debuted at No. 33 on NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah's board.

"Perriman is a tall, physical wide receiver with excellent big-play production throughout his college career. He uses his strength to power through press coverage," Jeremiah wrote. "He isn't explosive in his release, but he builds speed and he can find an extra gear when the ball is in the air. A lot of his production comes on three routes: posts, post corners and take-off routes. He isn't as effective when has to work back to the quarterback. He is too high into his break and he's sticky coming out. He makes some special high-point grabs, but he also has a lot of extension drops. His concentration needs to improve. After the catch, he is very physical to break tackles and he can pull away with speed. Overall, he has some tightness that limits his route versatility, but he should be an immediate deep threat as well as an inviting red zone target." NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt recently labeled Perriman as one of the draft's fastest risers and added that it wou

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.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein says UCF WR Breshad Perriman has the "height, weight and speed numbers that every team covets."

"Quick accelerator off the snap and destroys the cushion, forcing cornerbacks into 'turn-and-run' mode," Zierlein wrote. "Rare combination of size, top-end speed and suddenness that can be found in some of the best receivers in the game." Perriman is one of the hottest prospects in the class at the moment. ESPN's Mel Kiper recently ranked Perriman as the No. 5 receiver in the class and mocked him to the 49ers at No. 15. NFL.com's Gil Brandt says Perriman is in the first-round mix.

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt tweeted that UCF WR Breshad Perriman is "ascending" and added that it would be "no surprise" if he went in Round 1.

We expected Perriman's stock to rise at the combine, but it has taken on some serious helium in advance of the event. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder recorded 50 catches for 1,044 yards (20.9 YPR average) and nine touchdowns as a junior before declaring for the draft. According to Tony Pauline, Perriman did not receive a day one or day two grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board, which made sense at the time amidst a stacked WR class that includes West Virginia's Kevin White, Alabama's Amari Cooper, Louisville's DeVante Parker, Oklahoma's Dorial Green-Beckham, Arizona State's Jaelen Strong and Ohio State's Devin Smith. Now, however, it looks like Perriman could transcend the slot of his father Brett, a second-round pick of the New Orleans Saints.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman is "one of the bigger sleepers in the 2015 draft class at this point," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Kiper mocks Perriman to the 49ers at No. 15. This is the most optimistic we've seen any analyst on the Knights' prospect. "Perriman is a player I've grown to really like as I've spent more time going through his tape," Kiper wrote. "At one time I had him as a likely second-round pick, but now I see him as a close call in terms of overall ability next to the top few wide receivers in this class. He's got size, and strength, and is going to run really fast at the combine and be a guy who can both stretch defenses vertically and also make plays over the middle and in traffic. He's also got great bloodlines, as I scouted his father (Brett) when he played for Miami. It's pretty obvious the 49ers are thin at wide receiver, and that's even if they bring back Michael Crabtree, which is no guarantee." Kiper ranks Perriman as the No. 5 receiver in the class, while many other scribes see him outside the top 15.

UCF WR Breshad Perriman is a "big play waiting to happen," per Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl.

Perriman is "big, strong and can run," Weidl tweeted, but also calling attention to the number of drops the UCF receiver had in 2014. His ranking ranges from Mel Kiper placing Perriman as the No. 5 receiver in the class to others who see him outside the top 15.
Feb 10 - 10:55 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks UCF junior WR Breshad Perriman as the No. 5 receiver.

Kiper is higher on Perriman than anyone, now ranking the Golden Knight over more lauded prospects like Dorial Green-Beckham (Oklahoma), Jaelen Strong (Arizona St.), Sammie Coates (Auburn), Devin Smith (Ohio St.) and Jamison Crowder (Duke). TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported last month that Perriman did not receive a Day 1 or 2 draft grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board, which means the group suggested he stay in school. Perriman drops balls he shouldn't, and his technique doesn't inspire, but he's a legit deep threat who forces safeties back, and he excels in contested situations, which the NFL will love. The 6-foot-2, 209-pounder finished the season with 50 catches for 1,044 yards (20.9 YPR average) and nine touchdowns.

UCF senior WR Rannell Hall "made some terrific catches throughout the week, showing excellent timing, positioning and concentration to make contested grabs," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

"Hall showed terrific body control to adjust over Oregon State CB Steven Nelson to haul in a 32-yard pass in the third quarter. This wasn't the case of one splashy play getting Hall attention, though. He made some terrific catches throughout the week, showing excellent timing, positioning and concentration to make contested grabs," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Hall was Blake Bortles' favorite receiver from a year ago. The UCF Knights' prospect could hear his name called in the draft due to his quickness, which projects nicely to the NFL slot.

NFL scouts speaking to NFL Media analyst Charles Davis "are really buzzing" about UCF redshirt senior S Clayton Geathers.

"Samford's Jaquiski Tartt is the guy most evaluators had their eyes on this week among the small-school prospects, but it was Geathers who outshined most of the defensive backs on the South squad," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Bryan Fischer. "A savvy veteran with many starts under his belt, he was able to read and react quicker than most. He also showed off the coverage skills evaluators want to see from guys that can roam around on the back end and also break to the line of scrimmage well on runs." The Golden Knight has serious NFL bloodlines. His uncles Robert Sr. and Jumpy both played in the NFL, as did cousins Kwame, Clifton and Robert Jr.

UCF redshirt sophomore DB Jacoby Glenn declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Glenn is extremely talented. In fact, NFL.com previously wrote he was the best player on UCF's roster. UCF will lose a number of prospects to the NFL, including a couple who left early.
