Perkins is an athletic EDGE defender that has the versatility to play with his hand in the dirt or stand up. He has a good frame for a 3-4 OLB and is able to move fluidly around the field. Good hand technique and able to disengage routinely from OTs with a powerful swipe move. Great first step explosiveness. Able to quickly get upfield and get a OT moving. Solid in run defense. Able to locate the runner by keeping his eyes in the backfield and consistently is putting himself in great positioning to make a play. Competitive and plays with a high motor. Good tackler and able to routinely wrap up the ball-carrier. Smart player and shows great instincts. Great bend around stiffer OTs. Able to get almost parallel to the ground and then shows great closing speed on the football. Overall, Perkins is going to be very high on the draft board of a team that needs a pure speed rusher off the edge. He doesn't have much power to his game, but it's enough to make an impact in the NFL. Already shows good technique and understanding of the nuances of the position. Can make an impact right away at the next level, but also still shows that he has room to grow. Should be a Day 2 pick.
