Peria Jerry DT Ole Miss #98

Ht: 6'1
Wt: 290

An excellent athlete for an interior lineman. Quick off the snap. Shows the ability to make plays in the backfield (18 tackles for loss as a senior, t-11th in the nation). Plays with a motor that never quits.
Height and overall size are only adequate; doesn't have the ability to play nose tackle at the next level. Occasionally gets pushed around too easily by bigger offensive linemen.
Brother, John, plays offensive line for Ole Miss. Cousin is former NFL linebacker Dwayne Rudd. Jerry lacks the size to fit into all defensive systems, but he has a good combination of strength and athleticism which will allow him to be an effective three-technique lineman. He may even be athletic enough to play defensive end in a 3-4 system. He should be a mid to late first round selection.
