2015 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 25
Both Harold Perkins and Shaq Thompson were two-way threats at the high school level as dynamic running backs who projected on defense long-term. Thompson was an On3 Consensus top ten prospect coming out of Sacramento Grant Union in the 2012 cycle. The future Carolina Panther linebacker was primarily viewed as a big safety prospect at the time. Thompson was a prolific running back in high school, rushing for over 3,000 yards and 47 touchdowns while averaging 10.8 yards per carry. Perkins was similar, rushing for 1,194 yards and 18 touchdowns as a senior while averaging an amazing 17.8 yards per carry. Both Thompson and Perkins also showed top-end speed. Thompson posted a 10.96 second mark in the 100 meters while Perkins ran an electronically-timed 4.47 40-yard dash prior to his junior season. Thompson appears to have a little more length than Perkins, who may be a touch taller. Like Thompson, Perkins also has the talent to see some time on offense in college, before ultimately settling in at linebacker long-term.
