The NFL needs more big-bodied X receivers, and Perry can provide that. His short-area quickness and physicality are two key traits that can allow him to defeat press-man coverage at the NFL level. The body control and the length to high point and snatch the football away from defenders are what NFL scouts and GM's are looking for from a true boundary X WR.
PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT
Perry has shown the ability to make contested catches in traffic, which would make him a valuable possession receiver in an offense that relies on short-to-intermediate passing. He has good hands and can make tough catches over the middle, which is essential for a receiver who is asked to move the chains. Furthermore, Perry's athleticism and size also make him a potential mismatch against linebackers and safeties in the slot. He has the speed to get open against slower defenders, and his size makes him tough to bring down after the catch. He can play outside, or in the slot at the NFL level.
