Samaje Perine heads to Washington

Former Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon received plenty of attention prior to and during the draft. To some extent, that diminished the amount of attention that could have been (and should have been) paid to fellow former Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine.

Perine, who set an NCAA single-game record with 427 yards in 2014, has exited the board in round four, and he’ll start his NFL career in Washington.

With Matt Jones on the block, it very well could be Rob Kelley and Perine sharing touches in 2017. Perine made it clear during a recent visit to PFT Live that he has no problem with doing that, given that he eventually did it with Mixon in Norman.

  1. I hate the Washington REDSKINS, but even as a hater, the Washington REDSKINS have had an AMAZING draft; it’s almost as if aliens have taken over their front office. Gotta’ tip my NA hat to them; Hail to the REDSKINS.

    REDSKINS.

  2. Mixon…out of the league due to behavioral issues in 2 years. Perrine…the new Bus in town for a long and successful run with the Skins. Talk about a steal!

  3. Nice pick, looks like the REDSKINS fell bass ackwards into an A ++ draft without Scotch and Tonic McClughan there to pull the trigger. How will the expert haters spin this? Only time will tell.

    First off, alcoholism isn’t that funny bro. Second, what’s your point? Are you trying to tell us that Dan Snyder and Bruce Allen are competent owners and managers, because even the least intelligent and most optimistic homer (and I’m pretty sure that’s me) isn’t buying that.

    And most importantly/obviously, they were using MCloughan’s draft board. It isn’t like they threw his work in the garbage the minute he left.

  5. Now they really want to move Jones! Perine is slightly shorter version of him, with thicker legs, doesent run as upright, holds onto the ball and wont get hurt 3x a year.
