UCF wide receiver Breshad Perriman will not work out at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine due to a hamstring strain, his agent tweeted Friday morning.
The former UCF standout has been generating considerable draft hype after ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. projected Perriman in the first round of his mock NFL Draft and NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said Perriman "looks like a first-round receiver."
Perriman will work out for teams March 25 at UCF's Pro Day. Wide receivers weighed in Thursday at the Combine and former wide receiver Rannell Hall measured in at 6-feet tall, weighing 198 pounds. He also has a hand size of 8 5/8 inches — one of the smallest of the wide receivers. Meanwhile Perriman was measured at 6-foot-2-inches tall and 212 pounds with 9 1/4-inch hands.
The wide receivers will bench press Friday afternoon and perform their on-field drills, including the 40-yard dash, Saturday.
UCF defensive backs Clayton Geathers and Jacoby Glenn are scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis Friday and weigh in Saturday.
