2012 USC Trojans Player Profile - DE Nick Perry

Uspw_5694228_medium

Perry came to USC as a prized recruit from Detroit's King High School where he led his team to a 14-0 season and a 2007 state championship with 147 tackles and 36 sacks, a Michigan prep record.

Perry was named USC's Defensive Lineman of the Year following a 2011 season in which he led the Pac-12 in sacks with 9.5, most sacks by a Trojan since 2007...topped USC in tackles for losses with 13...led USC's defensive linemen in total tackles (54)...added 3 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery...Made the All-Pac-12 first team.

Played DE at USC but is considered a 'tweener by some who could also play outside linebacker. Perry's strength is at DE where he played exclusively at USC. Did play in the occasional 3-4 scheme but only as a DL, did not play OLB at USC.

POSITIVES:

Quick off the line...blows past blockers before they can get their hands up...good instinct at using leverage and staying balanced...has good change of direction skills...moves well to the outside to out maneuver agile pass blockers...excellent run defender...because of his speed and moves can make plays on the ball carrier from yards away...comparisons made to Freeny.

NEGATIVES:

While Eerry has decent push his upper body strength needs work...needs to show more hustle, sometimes takes plays off...at time shows fatigue in the 4th qtr. so conditioning will be important...has some issues when handling double teams...dissects the play well but sometimes over runs the play...at times Perry will bite on play action...mobile QB's could be an issue.

COMBINE:

40 Yard - 4.64

Bench Press - 35 reps

Vertical Jump - 38.5-inch vertical jump

Broad Jump - 124.0 inces

3-cone Drill - 7.25 seconds
