The son of former NFL receiver Brett Perriman seems to be ready to make a major splash in the family business.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, receiver Breshad Perriman will visit the Eagles on Thursday. It’s one of 18 pre-draft visits or private workouts for Perriman prior to the draft.
He visited the Lions and Ravens this week, and he has had private workouts with the Giants and Texans.
At his Pro Day workout last week, Perriman ran the 40-yard dash in 4.27 seconds. (Perriman didn’t run at the Scouting Combine, due to a hamstring injury.)
At six-three and 215 pounds, Perriman fits Chip Kelly’s preference for tall receivers. Last season, Perriman caught 50 passes for 1,044 yards (20.88 yards per catch) and nine touchdowns. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock recently included Perriman in a group of four receivers Mayock expects to be taken in the first 20 picks, along with Kevin White, Amari Cooper, and DeVante Parker.
The Eagles currently hold pick No. 20. So just as they’d have to trade up to get Marcus Mariota, they may have to trade up to get Perriman, too.
