Antonio Perkins School: Oklahoma
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 190 40: 4.57 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who posted 33/1/1 as
a senior, missing three games with a knee
injury. Totaled 51/2/5 as a junior, also averaging
12.1 yards on fourteen punt returns. Set an
NCAA record that year returning four punts for
Positives: Athletic cornerback with game
impacting skills as a punt returner. Quick-footed
off the line, displays a solid backpedal and
fluid transitioning to run with opponents. Can
flip his hips, quickly breaks on the throw, and
does a good job reading receivers' moves then
changing focus to the quarterback. Disciplined,
diagnoses the action and picks up assignments
in zone. Elusive ball handler tough to bring down
returning punts. Slides off defenders and fast in
the open field.
Negatives: Lacks top playing strength,
gathers into tackles and not very physical. Bites
on receivers' moves and does not always display
Analysis: After showing progress
his first two seasons on the field, Perkins had his
development slowed by last year's injury. Best
suited to play backed off the line of scrimmage
or in zone coverage. At the very least, a solid
first-day pick who should excel as a nickel back
and return specialist.
