EJ Perry Scouting Report

Boston College transfer EJ Perry is a unique QB prospect. Coming into Brown and playing for his uncle, Perry made an instant impact by setting the Ivy League record for total yards in a single season with 3,678 yards. Perry has incredible upside with crazy athleticism. He has to ability to make plays when needed and extending plays is one of his strong suits. A 4.5 40 time leaves no doubt that defenses will have to account for his running ability as well.

Pros/Strengths: EJ Perry’s pocket awareness and athleticism makes him dangerous. His progression is very smooth. Perry’s ability to extend plays as well as being accurate in the quick game make him a versatile and unique prospect, giving him a potential edge over other QBs. Scouts will love his competitiveness and willingness to never give up on a play.

Cons/Weaknesses: Perry’s toughness can often back fire on him as he tends to take unnecessary hits and questioning throws. Teams want a QB that is tough and aggressive, but smart while doing it. In certain situations, Perry needs to be smarter when running the ball and taking shots down the field.

Pre-Combine Projection

Expect EJ Perry to run one of the highest 40 times in this class. Scouts will love his accuracy in the short-middle pass game, but the biggest question mark is his consistency with the deep ball. Perry has to consistently deliver great touch on balls 35-40+ yards in order to jump higher on the draft board.
