Former Miami (Fla.) linebacker Denzel Perryman has flashed high-end potential in bursts throughout his career, but he's yet to live up to his second-round billing in the NFL. After earning a 75.6 overall grade in his rookie campaign, Perryman earned sub-60.0 overall grades in each of his next two seasons before earning a 70.1 overall grade in 2018. Injuries and inconsistency have kept Perryman from finding sustainable success on Sundays.

Perryman is at best a quality depth piece at off-ball linebacker and should get paid as such on the open market. He'll need to prove otherwise on a low-end deal to warrant a bigger role or bigger paycheck in the near future.
