Data Scout Notes: NothingCoachesorMedia/PButkus/P3rdC
Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Redskins' picks: Round 4/103 -- Perry Riley, LB, 6-1, 239, Louisiana State: Riley will become an inside linebacker in the Redskins' new 3-4 defense after playing weakside linebacker in college. He's a sure tackler and should provide quality depth. With incumbent starter Rocky McIntosh scheduled for unrestricted free agency in 2011, Riley has a prime opportunity to make an impact. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Perry Riley News
11/30/16 - LB Perry Riley Jr. (hamstring), who sat out the Carolina game, was limited in practice and might face Buffalo.
10/26/16 - LB Perry Riley Jr. has established himself as the starting middle linebacker in just three weeks on the roster. Riley arrived as a street free agent after recovering from a foot injury following six years with the Washington Redskins. The Raiders opened with second-year player Ben Heeney in the middle, and he was ineffective before breaking an ankle and going on injured reserve. Cory James, a quick but undersized player for a middle linebacker, was next. Riley, however, played every snap against Jacksonville, with James on special teams. Coach Jack Del Rio likes having a veteran on the field.
10/24/16 - LB Perry Riley Jr. started in front of rookie Cory James and played all 67 snaps.
10/18/16 - LB Perry Riley opened as the starter on the weak side, later giving way to Malcolm Smith, who missed the San Diego game with a groin strain.
10/13/16 - LB Perry Riley Jr. signed a contract on Tuesday and then played all but two snaps on Sunday against San Diego in place of the injured Malcolm Smith.
"I was ready for it. I didn't know exactly (I was starting) until they told me I was going out for intros," Riley said. "I didn't want to get caught off-guard, so I prepared as if I was starting."
Riley forced a fumble and led the team in tackles.
Del Rio, who had lobbied GM Reggie McKenzie to sign Riley, liked what he saw.
"It speaks to his professionalism, really attacking the preparation, trying to learn the language," Del Rio said. "That's the biggest thing. Basically anything he's doing, he's probably done in his career over six years. We found some of the common ground and tried to put it in our terms so he could learn it as fast as he could."
