    Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine drew praise from running backs coach Randy Jordan for his quickness and elusiveness during rookie minicamp, and head coach Jay Gruden praised Perine's technique. 'You can tell his pad level is always down and he had good vision and he has good feet in the hole, and he caught the ball well,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Rob Kelley should enter the season as the lead back, but there is no guarantee that he is the long-term answer. Perine could play his way into a sizeable role before the end of the year, and he is worth a look as a RB4.

    The Washington Redskins selected Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine with the No. 114 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.

    Huddle Up: Perine will compete for touches, but he could be fast-tracked with reports of Matt Jones being on the trade block. Perine is a big-bodied back at 5-11, 233 pounds, and could slide into the conversation of No. 4 fantasy back in upcoming drafts. Presumed starter Rob Kelley enters a make-or-break situation.
