Baltimore has selected the 22nd wide receiver drafted in Ravens' history. We've talked about what type of player Breshad Perriman is, along with his pluses and minuses, but let's actually watch him play.
This is what Perriman really brings to the table. You can see the corner backpeddaling in order to not get beat deep. The move inwards helps freeze the safety at the hash mark only to have Perriman break it back inside for an easy completion. Breshad will need to plant that foot in the ground and turn his hips a little faster at the next level, but that is a small thing to learn as he has the overall concept of that route down.
A contested throw, Perriman just one hands it and deflects it for an interception. I would like to see him square up his shoulders a little more and catch the ball cleanly between the defenders. He'll have to learn that in training camp because quarterback Joe Flacco tends to throw some of his passes in tight windows like this.
A good job with his route, coming back to the ball and making the catch. He let it get a little too far into him, but he secured a high pass over a corner.
A better throw here and Breshad would be off to the races. I think that is a throw that quarterback Joe Flacco will hit more often than not.
As you can see, Breshad Perriman was used in a variety of ways here. While he clearly has the deep speed that the Ravens will like to use early and often this season, he does have the skills necessary to run some of the more intermediate routes and be successful. He might not be a star in his first season, but with some proper coaching and a quarterback that can throw him open, he looks to be a dangerous weapon.
