7. Breshad Perriman (Round 1-2) – Central Florida 

Last week at his pro day, Perriman ran an “official” 4.26 40-yard dash but the times at pro bowls are done by hand unlike the combine, thus often quicker than usual. Either way, this time moved him up draft boards by a full round. Lots of rumors are circulating around the league that have Perriman landing in the middle of the first round.

On tape, it is clear that he is this fast. He is not one dimensional either unlike Mike Wallace and other speedsters. At 212 pounds, Breshad can use his body size to make plays as well. His hands are a bit shaky but that can be polished up early in his career.

The Texans would be reaching for him at 16th overall, but he would fill the biggest need. I would prefer the Texans waiting until the second round to get similar talent at a cheaper price. However, Breshad Perriman has enormous upside and would be good in Houston for the future.
