Breshad Perriman Impresses In Ravens Debut
Breshad Perriman was finally on the field for the Baltimore Ravens:
Rarely does the fourth preseason game provide you with the moment, we’ve all been waiting for. However when the Ravens 2015 first round pick is finally making his debut in 2016, there is reason for excitement. Perriman impressed in his first game since playing for the UCF Knights.
Ryan Mallet quickly threw him the ball on a hitch route. Perriman’s next catch came on an in route, and the ball was thrown behind him. Perriman displayed a fantastic ability to pull that ball in and make a play. In the end, we couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Perriman finished with two receptions and 25 yards. After a year of waiting, we wanted to see Perriman wow us. It would have been nice to see the Ravens take a shot down the field with him. It’s still impossible not to be happy with what we saw tonight.
Perriman ran good, crisp routes. He showed solid hands and played aggressively. Perriman threw a couple of good blocks, including one that took a hopeless Stephen Houston run into a positive gain.
You knew that I had to analyze the most overdue first catches a receiver has ever had. He did his job tonight. The Ravens receiving corps shined as a whole. Chris Moore was fantastic. Jeremy Butler made some great grabs as well.
The Ravens will go into the regular season knowing that Perriman can get the job done at the receiver position. It’s so helpful that he got some playing time in the preseason. When you consider how much practice time Perriman has missed, this was an energizing display of talent.
