Paul Perkins

School: UCLA
Position: RB
Positive: Two-year starter and co-captain at UCLA. Junior totals included a career-best 1575 yards rushing. Totaled 30 receptions for 242 yards last season. Consistent interior ball carrier with the ability to create yardage. Tough and gritty, fights to pick up as much yardage as possible and runs hard on the inside. Works runs, putting his shoulders into defenders and falling forward when tackled. Runs low to the ground and behind his pads. Quick, elusive and makes defenders miss or weaves through the traffic to create yardage. Loses little momentum changing direction. Solid pass catcher, adjusting to the errant throw and making the reception with his hands. Displays good vision, will pick and choose his spots then follows blocks everywhere on the field.
Negative: Really must improve his blocking in pass protection. Lacks great perimeter speed and cannot turn the corner. Not a back that's going to run to daylight.
Analysis: Perkins has been a solid ball carrier for UCLA the past two seasons and has underrated potential for the next level. He offers the size, skill and versatility to see action as a rotational back early in his NFL career and eventually develop into a starter.
