I absolutely love Nick Perry and this pick for the Packers. He was great in college and will make an instant impact in the pros. Perry is underrated, and Green Bay was smart for picking him up. Now, they must morph this college kid into a big-time pass-rusher in the NFL.
With the skills that Perry has, it won’t be too hard.
Nick Perry has perfected his rip, swim and spin moves to the point that they are very effective but also predictable. So it comes as no surprise that he also has the ability to work inside with a solid bull rush and use great power to make his presence known.
The Trojan can work both inside linemen and give a burst of speed to get to the outside. He uses his hands extremely well but also can use blockers hands to his advantage in order to set up important moves and get to the backfield.
Perry has not filled his frame yet and can put on the muscle needed to max it out and get bigger and, in turn, better. It is always a great thing to hear that a prospect never quits on a play, but Perry is amazing in pursuit and uses his great motor to keep a play running.
In 2011 the USC prospect had 54 tackles, 13 for a loss, and 8.5 sacks. The Green Bay Packers needed a pass-rusher, and Perry more than fills that hole.
