Ronnie Perkins

Height: 6’3″

Weight: 251

Strengths: Ronnie Perkins is a bad man in the pass rush. His hands are violent. Once touch the offensive lineman, it’s essentially over. Has a couple of moves in his repertoire (snatch/pull and club/rip) and uses them effectively. Also has the power to bull rush and uses leverage well at the point of attack. Has an incredible motor that he uses both in the passing and rushing game.

Weaknesses: Is a functional athlete but not a great one. Shows explosion off the ball but doesn’t display it consistently. Does not display good bend around the edge. Needs to add more pass rush moves to his arsenal. If the offensive lineman stops his initial move, he doesn’t have a plan of attack or a counter move. Needs to spend more time in the film room to increase his football IQ.

Ronnie Perkins is a high upside pass rusher that has a lot of upside but needs to be paired with a great coach at the next level to get the most out of him. The former Oklahoma Sooner projects best as a 4-3 5 Technique defensive end and is likely a 2-3 year project before he reaches his potential. If he can expand his tool chest and his knowledge of blocking schemes, he can be a quality starter in the National Football League
