Bill Belichick didn’t waste any time leaving the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix.
The New England Patriots head coach was in Orlando, Fla., on Wednesday for the University of Central Florida’s pro day, where wide receiver Breshad Perriman ran a blazingly fast 40-yard dash.
The 6-foot-2, 212-pound receiver was timed between 4.22 and 4.27 seconds, according to UCF football’s Twitter account. Perriman didn’t run at the NFL Scouting Combine because of a hamstring injury, but he’s projected to be selected in the first or second round of the 2015 NFL draft.
The UCF receiver, who caught 50 passes for 1,044 yards with nine touchdowns last season as a junior, is the son of former NFL wideout Brett Perriman.
The younger Perriman finished his three-year UCF career with 115 catches for 2,243 yards and 16 touchdowns. He had eight drops in 2014, according to Pro Football Focus’ Steve Palazzolo. [tweet https://twitter.com/PFF_Steve/status/580805576617246720 align=center]
