|by Drew Boylhart SR Staff Writer March 2005||Tab Perry WR UCLA|
Tab has very good size and speed for his position. He has decent hands and loves to make big plays. He has deceiving speed and understands how to use his body to ward off the defender. (That’s scout talk…pretty impressive, right?!) He wards off the defender? Who wards anyway? I have never warded off anything in my life. Where do they come up with this stuff? Tab has very good potential to be a #2 or #3 receiver and help out on special teams.
Needs to Improve
Tab has a lot of things to learn, but he does have a lot to work with. He does a little body catching and he needs to run better routes. He also needs to stay healthy. He has good mental toughness, but he needs to stay healthy or he will not make a team.
Talent Board Round 5
Tab is a definite size/speed ratio player that in the second day of the draft, might be a heck of a draft choice. If he had stayed healthy, he most likely would have been a second day pick anyway because he has a lot to learn; therefore, taking him before the 5th round might not be the smartest thing. Tab needs a lot more consistency in his overall game and has to stay healthy to compete for a spot in a camp, but he is a pretty good kick returner and that just might get him a seat on the bus to the next level.
