Perry was a triple threat at Navy and performed at the NFL Combine as a receiver, running a mediocre 4.63 40 but leaping 36", solid for a player of his size (5'10/181). The triple-option player for Navy plays faster than his timed speed and he showed his agility in both the 3-cone and 20-yard shuttle drills, posting scores of 7.12 and 4.31 respectively, both near the top of receivers at the Combine. Perry is being asked to learn the slot role due to both Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson opting out of the 2020 season. Fellow receiver Jakeem Grant would seemingly have a big leg up for the slot role over Perry, but on an unsettled depth chart, anything is possible. Malcolm Perry remains unranked on DLF's receiver rankings but has drawn comps to Julian Edelman and Antwan Randle-El.
