Jaguars 101 Pre-Draft Analysis: USC Defensive End Nick Perry

Height: 6-3

Weight: 271

Draft Stock: He will probably be selected in the latter part of the first round. But he is probably not going to fall past the Tennessee Titans at #20. 

 

Overview

Nick Perry is a high motor defensive end for the University of Southern California. He has a serious burst off of the snap and he can actually disrupt the backfield. He has pretty violent hands that, combined with his burst, allows him to get the jump on the opposing offensive tackle. It is no wonder why the Jaguars seemed interested in him. He seems to fit defensive line coach Joe Cullen's profile perfectly. Plus, if the New York Jets pull off that rumored trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for Melvin Ingram, they will be in the perfect position to draft him.

 

Career Highlight

5 tackles and 2.5 sacks against the Washington Huskies.  Notice how he seems to have a second gear for obvious passing downs. The left tackle was holding on for dear life. However, you can see that he is a bit inconsistent with his handfighting.
