2015 NFL Draft: St. Petersburg Bowl Scouting Preview – Central Florida vs. NC State

Clayton Geathers will look to lead UCF to a Bowl win Friday.
Both Central Florida (9-3) and N.C. State (7-5) enter Friday’s St. Petersburg Bowl on winning streaks, with the Knights winning their last four games by a combined 88 points and N.C. State emerging victorious in their last two by 57 points. UCF is coming off an exciting 32-30 victory over East Carolina that earned them a share of the AAC title, while N.C. State rolled in-state rival North Carolina, 35-7, to cap a 7-5 season that would’ve been even better if not for a four-game losing streak in the middle of the year.

The impact NFL prospects in this game will be wearing UCF uniforms tomorrow, with two players who will find themselves in the top 100 of many big boards this offseason leading the way, one on each side of the football. 


Breshad Perriman, WR, #11
The son of former Lions wide receiver and 1988 second-round pick Brett Perriman, Breshad brings a similar draft grade to the table as his father once did. At 6-2, 209 pounds, Perriman high points the ball well and has very good hands, although he could improve his aggressiveness at the catch point. A deep threat that can get behind the defense, Perriman averaged over 22 yards per catch this year with nine touchdowns.

While Perriman is far from raw as a receiver and should be able to contribute early in his NFL career, he does need to develop better technique to reach his full potential as a pro. A junior who’s expected to declare for the draft, Perriman is one of two top-100 prospects on UCF’s roster.
