RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After Shazier, it's probably Perryman who has the most tantalizing upside outside of the top tiers. His total of 73 tackles from last year might not seem impressive at a glance, but it's actually incredible because he played just 386 defensive snaps. Sure, a handful of his tackles were likely accumulated on his 106 special teams snaps, but this is clearly a highly-unusual rate of production. In 2016, Perryman's play count will likely approach the 1,000-snap mark. That doesn't mean he'll make 200-plus tackles in 2016, but it's hard to argue that the possibility should be ruled out. Buy.
Perryman is a nasty hitter who is good against the run, and he is expected to push Manti Te'o and Donald Butler for playing time as a rookie.
