Ravens' Perriman addresses his case of the dropsies
The biggest question surrounding Breshad Perriman coming out of the draft was his penchant for dropping the football.
He did little to quell those concerns during the first practice of Ravens minicamp. Perriman dropped four passes thrown his way, including a deep ball that found him wide open behind corner Jimmy Smith.
The No. 26 overall pick was more than willing to hold himself accountable for his miscues.
"I don’t really make excuses for it," Perriman said after practice, via the team's official site. "They should have been caught, but that’s something that won’t happen too often."
Perriman's mental toughness showed later in the session, as he overcame the early mistakes and made several tough catches.
"It’s really all mental," Perriman said. "I talk to myself, tell myself the things that I need to do to complete those passes and just try to step it up a notch more."
Head coach John Harbaugh was saw plenty to like of the first offensive player to be drafted in round one since Michael Oher in 2009.
"Breshad is doing a really good job and working to put it all together, and that’s the challenge for every rookie, but he has all the talent in the world," Harbaugh said. "He’s very determined, he’s very talented, and he’s going to do really well."
