USC DE #8 Nick Perry Highlights 2010 (via CaliforniasGold)



And here's a link of Nick Perry vs Jonathan Martin (top offensive tackle prospect).

6-3, 250
55 tackles, 13 TFL, 9.5 sacks, 2FF

Perry is a guy I thought would have gotten much more pub by now. I'm somewhat surprised at how little regard he has received. He's got prototypical size and fantastic athleticism. He also has the two qualities that are most valuable to pass rushers: 1) a good first step; and 2) very violent hands. Perry's explosive first step and extremely violent hands make him a menance on the edge. In the link above you'll seem him take Martin to town in most pass rushing situations. Luck was constantly under duress and unable to stay in set in his spot in large part due to Perry's continuous harassment.

Perry is much better suited to play OLB in a 34 than he is DE in a 43. With the additional space he would get from the OLB position, his lightning first step and his hand usage would make him really tough to handle. Perry has the size to hunker down on the edge, and the speed & athleticism to drop into coverage. He'd be perfectly suited to play on the weakside while Pace does the dirty work on the strongside.
