Ravens Perriman needs to step up production
When the Baltimore Ravens drafted Breshad Perriman in the first round of the 2015 draft they were hoping for a number one receiver. Perriman missed his rookie season with a leg injury which really hurt his development. Perriman saw a lot of action last season and scored three touchdowns with his 33 receptions. Perriman started looking promising at the end of last season.
The Ravens were expecting big things from Perriman this season. Perriman only has four receptions out of 16 receptions, which is only a 25% catch rate. Drops have always been a concern for Perriman, who already has a few this season.
That being said, the entire Ravens offense has struggled and Perriman’s production could be the product of the entire offense struggling. Perriman did have bad key drops that hurt the Ravens offense and ended drives. Those drops did not help Joe Flacco who was struggling recovering from a back injury.
The Ravens offense is still trying to find its identity and I think as the season goes on they will improve. Perriman could be a player that comes on later in the season. Despite Perriman being in the league for three seasons he only has one year of real experience. Perriman is still a raw talent that may end up making game changing plays.
Perriman still has all the physical tools to be a great wide reciever. The next few games should really indicate how the rest of the season will go for Perriman.
