Denzel Perryman is a 'thumper' and a 'badass'

Miami ILB Denzel Perryman is a "thumper" and a "badass," said an AFC director of scouting.

"I have a little higher grade on Perryman than I probably should, but we like thumpers and badasses inside, and he's both," the scout said. An AFC regional scout added, "He's the type of guy you like having on your team because he brings toughness to practice." Perryman received a third-round projection from the advisory board last winter but elected to return to school, and now NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah projects him as the No. 30 pick in the first round to the Packers. "Scouts love Perryman's physical, angry playing style -- he's a burly, stout, old-school linebacker who wants to hit the ball carrier," wrote colleague Lance Zierlein. "He's more of an early-down linebacker who can make plays against the run but will struggle when isolated in coverage, which limits his ceiling, but he can be a highly productive player in the NFL."
