Perrilloux’s Draft Projections
As the NFL Combine is going on this week, Gamecockillustrated.com thought Jacksonville State’s Ryan Perrilloux should be there. He’s not. We went to the NFL Combine website, http://www.nflcombine.net, to find out more about the selection process. On that website, it says:
“Participants are determined annually by a Selection Committee. The Directors of both National and BLESTO scouting services, which combined represent twenty-five NFL teams, are joined by members of various NFL player personnel departments to form the committee. The participating NFL executives can rotate on a yearly basis, and remain anonymous. ALL eligible players are reviewed and voted on by the committee members. Each athlete receiving the necessary number of votes, by position, is then extended an invitation. While it is not a perfect science, the goal of the committee is to invite every player that will be drafted in the ensuing NFL Draft.”
We hope they missed the boat on Ryan. From what projections are appearing on the internet now, they did. Ryan is now listed as a potential first day draft pick on this website, where they have moved from a forecast of Free Agent, to Second Day Draft Pick, now to First Day Draft Pick. Taking a look at this link, Ryan is rated as the #10 QB in this year’s draft. I happen to think he would beat at least a couple of the guys they have ranked ahead of him. This website is projecting Perrilloux as a 3rd Round Pick.
Of course, none of these website rankings are from an NFL team, they are just guesses. We’ll see what happens when the draft is held next month. JSU fans are wishing the best for Ryan, and hope he gets selected by a team where he will get a shot to show what he can do on the field. Good luck, RP.
