On November 4, 2014, it was announced that Perryman had received an invitation to appear in the 2015 Senior Bowl. He was one of four Miami players to be invited, including Phillip Dorsett, Clive Walford, and Ladarius Gunter. He accepted his invitation and attended the Senior Bowl as part of Jacksonville Jaguars’ head coach Gus Bradley’s South team, but was unfortunately unable to play in the actual game due to a minor injury he suffered earlier the week in practice. Although he didn’t play, he was able to garner interest from the San Diego Chargers after having an impressive performance in practice. Perryman was one of 35 collegiate linebackers to attend the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. He performed all of the combine drills and finished second among linebackers in the bench press and 18th in the 40-yard dash. He was unable to perform the short shuttle and three-cone drill after sustaining a hip injury. On April 1, 2015, Perryman attended Miami’s pro day and opted to perform the 40-yard dash (4.70s), 20-yard dash (2.65s), 10-yard dash (1.61s), bench press (30 reps), and vertical jump (33″) before a hamstring injury during his second attempt in the 40-yard dash kept him from completing the short shuttle, and three cone drill again. Although his was hampered with multiple injuries during the draft process, Perryman was still able attain a second to third round projection from NFL draft experts and scouts. He was ranked the fourth best inside linebacker in the draft by NFLDraftScout.com.
