Even though Perriman has missed nearly all of training camp and the preseason, he is an absolute lock to make the team. As the team’s most recent 1st round pick, Perriman will have ample opportunities to prove himself.

Now that Torrey Smith is in San Francisco, Perriman will get an opportunity to take over the field-stretching role. However, he will most likely not be limited to that. He has good lateral movement and can catch short passes or go across the middle as well.

Perriman can also create after the catch, either by breaking tackles with sheer strength, or by just simply outrunning defenders. Perriman is similar to Larry Fitzgerald in that he is a physical beast, but also has the finesse to be able to make plays that other receivers just can’t.

Also, Perriman has the NFL lineage that a lot of players aren’t blessed enough to have. Perriman’s father was a successful receiver in the league for years, and he should be able to adapt to the league better because he has an experienced person in his corner. Look for Perriman to have a long, successful career.
