A former pick, Perriman was considered a massive bust up until recently. Never short on raw talent, Perriman's production never seemed to match his perceived talent level or ceiling. But last season, when placed in a prolific passing and given number one type targets due to , Perriman shined.

Breshad Perriman caught 36 balls for 645 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2019, though he didn't really get a shot to shine until late in the season. Once he got that opportunity Perriman looked pretty good, breaking 100 yards receiving in each of his three starts.
