Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about SAMAJE PERINE: Oklahoma, 5105 233 4.66. Junior entry from Pflugerville, TX. Started 30 games over three years and became the Sooners’ all-time leading rusher with 4122 yards. Muscled up from head to toe. Rare lower body size and strength. Not easy to tackle. Always going forward gaining an extra yard. Good downhill acceleration. Runs with his chin over his toes. Drives his legs through contact. Next level blocker. Will stick defenders with a face up hit and sustain his block. Did not catch a lot of passes, but showed enough that he will be a factor on the next level. Soft and easy hands. A power runner who struggles to change direction and burst past a defender in the open field. Takes a lot of hits due to this running style. Lacks the speed to turn the corner. His production steadily declined each season, partially because of injuries and partially because of the emergence of teammate Joe Mixon. Perine has had the NFL body since his freshman season. His power and strength between the tackles will be NFL-ready week one. He protects the ball well, blocks well, and has top tier intangibles. You know what you’re getting, limited but effective in the right role. 2016 stats: 1060 yds, 5.4 ypc, 12 TD, 10 rec, 106 yds, 10.6 ypr, 1 TD. OSR:20/ 30. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 3/8, H-10, BP-30, SS-4.38).
