Jets RB La’Mical Perine Dynasty Rookie Analysis

  • Draft Position: 4.120 | School: Florida
  • Height: 5’11” | Weight: 216 pounds
  • 40-yard dash: 4.62 seconds
  • 2020 Age: 22 | Class: Senior
  • Recruitment Stars: 3

On the depth chart for the Jets, it’s pretty much just Le’Veon Bell, who is now 28 and entering what could be his last year in New York, given that the Jets can cut him in 2021 while eating only $4 million in dead money.

Perine never had even 1,000 scrimmage yards in any season at Florida, but he did have a strong 40-262-5 receiving line as a senior.

With good size and pass-catching skills, Perine could be a serviceable backup to Bell in 2020 and, perhaps, the lead back in 2021.
