Prospect Profile: Justin Perkins

Posted Mar 27, 2005

Justin Perkins School: Connecticut
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 170 40: 4.55 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Started three of the past four seasons posting 38/5/12 as a senior. Missed the 2002 season after tearing a ligament in his right knee.

Positives: Zone cornerback with solid ball skills. Takes proper angles to the play and always working to get a hand in, then knock away the throw. Displays a good move on the ball and displayed improved instincts as a senior.

Negatives: Has a thin build and struggles in man or press coverage. Occasionally gets turned and slow locating the ball. Lacks the top break on the throw.

Analysis: A prospect with adequate physical skills, Perkins has a slight chance as a dime back for a zone coverage defense.
