A.T. Perry, Wake Forest (6’5”, 205)
What Scouts Say:
A contested catch guy, out-muscles defenders, and high points the catch. Natural playmaker with great hands. Good ball skills and he thrives off being physical. He is a limited route runner who comes from a spread formation that afforded him a lot of space to get open. Does not have top-end speed and uses his physicality to get the ball, due to a lack of separation.
What We Saw:
I didn’t hate Perry; I just think he’s more of an asset to a real NFL team than a fantasy team. He’s a willing blocker, and at his size, that means he will have value. He’s legitimately good after the catch, but he isn’t necessarily fast enough to generate separation at the college level, so I’m not confident he can do it at the next level. I think AT Perry gets drafted and has value as a blocking WR/red zone specialist, but at the same time, I wouldn’t be surprised if he plays in the USFL this summer.
He’s big, that’s about it. Honestly probably would be better served to put on 30 pounds to play tight end. Personally, he can hit waivers and have someone else have him sit on a roster
Equanimeous St. Brown/the buzz on the TV you don’t notice until it turns off
