We’re seven days away from training camp, so now it’s time for our seventh bold prediction for the San Diego Chargers.
Bold Prediction No. 7: Denzel Perryman will finish in the top three in tackles among LBs
This one is dedicated to Elvis (you know what’s up). #thispredictionisgood
Chargers linebacker Denzel Perryman is a star in the making. Even NFL.com expects him to make a leap this season.
At Miami, Perryman had at least 100 or more tackles in back-to-back seasons. In only nine starts, Perryman finished behind Manti Te’o for the most solo tackles (58) on the team his rookie year.
The guy is a beast. He’s a tackling machine. He has rare closing speed. He’s an old-shool thumper who reminds me of Ray Lewis (also from The U). With a revamped front seven, he will do even more damage.
Perryman will be the full-time starter going into 2016, so expect him to double his numbers. I’ll keep this prediction short, but Perryman could end up being one of the best inside linebackers in the game by the end of the year.
