Reminds Us Of
HS Class of 2013
2018Draft: Rnd2 /Pick4
Suntarine Perkins reminds us of Darius Leonard due to his extreme length, lean build, physicality and tackling ability and do-it-all role as a high school player. Perkins is a more touted prospect than Leonard out of high school and reminds us a bit of C.J. Mosley as well.
