A.T. Perry stands out for his big frame and catch radius, which makes him one of the top receiver prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft. Perry’s athleticism and contested-catch skills make him a prime red zone target, and if he can develop his route tree more, there’s a chance for him to make Pro Bowls one day. However, he is on the older side for a prospect, turning 24 in October.
A.T. Perry Draft Profile
College: Wake Forest
A big and often dominant contested-catch specialist, Perry possesses an enormous catch radius and strong hands that were crucial to Wake’s offensive success the past two seasons. Size is the obvious attribute that stands out with Perry, who is broad-shouldered and long-armed and is completely at home battling for the ball in tight spots.
He can create some separation, too, as a coordinated mover with quick feet for a big man. He consistently plucks it away from his frame with big hands and generally transitions smoothly to a runner and gets up the field.
Perry, like everyone in Wake’s offense, benefited statistically from the unique, “slow mesh” offense the team ran, one that constantly put second-level defenders in a bind and blew open spaces for receiving targets.
He’ll have to add some branches to his route tree at the pro level. Perry isn’t a burner, and while he’s competitive, he doesn’t break off many big plays with the ball in his hands.
Perry was the ultimate ball-winner at the collegiate level and has enough overall athleticism to go with his size to do the same on the NFL level even if he doesn’t consistently create space and separate.
Final Grade: 3rd/4th Round
