Denzel Perryman is the one of the smallest inside linebackers in the draft and the smallest on my list at 5’11” and 236 pounds. Despite being undersized Perryman still managed 171 tackles, 72 assists, three sacks, two interceptions, and six forced fumbles in his three year college career at Miami.

Perryman was a highlight reel hit waiting to happen in college. If he had the opportunity to lay into a player he often made the offensive player pay for every yard they earned. Take a look at his top ten hits.

"Showed improved closing speed and explosiveness as a tackler in 2014. Strong, active hands, agile feet and good use of leverage free him from blocks. Good burst and lower-body flexibility. Picks up routes quickly. Smooth hips to hitch himself to a crossing route and maintain stride-for-stride coverage on slot receivers. Durable. Voted team captain. -Courtesy of Derek Stephens and Rob Rang of CBS Sports"

While he may not be the most talented of the inside linebackers, he is the most fun to watch. Expect Perryman to often be outmatched by offensive lineman but if he gets the opportunity to square up a player expect him to explode through the player.

Perryman is listed as the fourth best inside linebacker, and 76th best overall prospect in the 2015 NFL Draft according to CBS Sports which puts him in a nearly perfect position to be drafted by the KC Chiefs with their first third round pick which is the 80th overall pick.
