2017

Previously just the answer to a trivia question ("Who broke Melvin Gordon's NCAA single-game rushing record one week after he set it?"), Perine will get a chance to make a name for himself in Washington, as he fits the physical RB mold the franchise has looked for since the days of Alfred Morris, if not John Riggins. At 5-10, 235, Perine has the build to handle a big workload and runs with plenty of power, making him difficult to bring down on first contact. His lack of speed or elusiveness make him purely an option between the tackles in the NFL, but that downhill style could make him a weapon at the goal line, an area where Washington struggled last year. Robert Kelley tops the depth chart heading into 2017, but if he can't repeat his success as a rookie, Perine could claim the lion's share of early down work.
