Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Perkins has broad shoulders, thick thighs and quick feet, which allow him to spurt through creases and run through arm tackles. Possesses intriguing acceleration. Some of his most impressive runs, are due to an ability to stop and start, allow pursuing defenders to slip right on by him. Perkins has good vision and likes to cut-back, making him a threat even when defenders appear to have him bottled up. He isn't asked to do much as a receiver, typically slipping out in the flats, but when given the opportunity, has shown good hands and explosion upfield after the catch.

WEAKNESSES: Perhaps not as fast as his estimated 40-yard dash time would indicate, as he'll appear to lose steam on longer runs, and has been run down from behind at times. Perkins will lower a shoulder into an oncoming defender when in pass protection but ultimately, his lack of size limits his effectiveness in this area.

COMPARES TO: Vick Ballard, RB, Indianapolis Colts - Perkins is similar in many ways to his former teammate, Vick Ballard, now running with the Indianapolis Colts. Like Ballard, Perkins does not possess special traits but is a determined, well-rounded player who can contribute at the next level. He is certainly smaller than the 5-10, 220-pound Ballard, but is faster and more agile in space.
