Two-star quarterback EJ Perry has had quite the career in college football. After leaving high school as a two-star rookie, the Massachusetts native earned a big reputation at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Perry, who is 6-foot-2 and 211 pounds, played his first two years at Boston College. However, after spending time in the backup role, he chose to drop down a level and play at Brown University in the FBS.
While at Rhode Island, he earned first-team All-Ivy League honors in each of his two years as a Bears starter. In 2019, he led the FCS and set a conference record with 3,679 total rushing yards in 10 starts, then earned Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year honors as a senior.
Since the end of the 2021 season, Perry has impressed scouts with his athleticism in the postseason All-Star Games and was named East-West Shrine Bowl MVP.
As a result, he earned an invitation to the NFL Combine this week.
After arriving in Indianapolis, he caught the eye of NFL scouts. He kicked things off with a very quick 40-yard dash.
And enlightened him during the throwing session on the field.
The official Perry NFL Combine schedule ended midweek, but Perry decided to stay in Naptown and help out with other drills. It was another opportunity to show his stuff.
After helping defensive linemen and other prospects on Saturday, Perry stood out with something he did off the court. Rather than leaving the pitch, after drills that weren’t even for him, he walked around the sideline picking up every last piece of trash.
The moment, filmed, was not only a testament to Perry’s character, but also to his work ethic. If drafted in April, Perry will be the first quarterback in Brown’s history to hear his name.
It’s safe to say we’re all rooting for him!
