Breshad Perriman: One-on-One at the NFL Rookie Premiere


It’s hard not to be excited, as a Ravens fan, about the upcoming season.  And one of the biggest catalysts for that excitement comes from the team’s first round draft pick, wide receiver Breshad Perriman.

Our pals at 120 Sports, specifically Rick Strom, got to sit down with the future apple of Joe Flacco’s eye at the recent NFLPA Rookie Premiere.

Perriman talks about the difference in speed between college and pro ball, the weather in Baltimore vs. Orlando, and why speed shouldn’t be his only calling card.

One of the funniest moments occurs when Strom asks Perriman who is a better player – himself, or his dad (Brett Perriman, former NFL’er).  Breshad doesn’t hesitate in his response.

In all fairness, Breshad had the benefit of learning from his dad’s experiences and mistakes.  It’s always nice to have that kind of mentor when you’re growing up and maturing as a player.

And while you might think that Steve Smith was the young Perriman’s current mentor following OTAs and minicamp, Perriman actually gives credit to the entire receiving corps for helping him adjust to the NFL life.  Though Smith was admittedly the first person to speak to him.

Perriman appreciates the family like atmosphere that the Ravens have provided so far, and his comfort level with Joe Flacco has been on full display throughout the team’s offseason activities so far.  That and his aspiration for greatness should hopefully translate to success in his coming rookie season.
