A fourth-round pick last year, Perine took over lead duties when Rob Kelley was banged up in the second half of the year, immediately making a strong impression by rumbling for 217 yards and a touchdown over a two-game stretch against the Saints and Giants. His role shrank after that as he had trouble staying healthy. At 5-11, 236, Perine runs with plenty of power, and he also showed more aptitude in the passing game than expected, as his 22 catches were more than double what he hauled in his final year at Oklahoma. His lack of speed and elusiveness make it difficult for him to be effective without a big workload to wear down the opposition. With second-round pick Derrius Guice suffering a torn ACL in the first week of preseason action, Perine will once again compete for snaps with Kelley and Chris Thompson.

  2. Samaje Perine 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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.
