“Perine is an aggressive, pounding runner who is very difficult to tackle one on one. ” –Daniel Jeremiah
A power runner through and through. Normally cannot be taken down by the first would be tackler, and punishes defenders that don’t break down and get a clean angle on him. Has enough shiftiness and speed to maximize his strength. Consistent and tough. Keeps legs moving, and has a very effective stiff arm. Used only slightly in the pass game, but does possess good hands, and a willing blocker. In a draft loaded with RB’s, could slide and end up being a huge value after round 1.
