Overview

Parker was a star at the FCS level and he has the athleticism to contribute in a defensive line rotation at the next level. He is very light on his feet and has the lateral range to make tackles down the line of scrimmage. He also uses his hands very well to keep blockers at a distance and can quickly shed once he locates the ball. He plays too high and lacks the lower body strength to consistently be a road block in the running game and is not a natural pass rusher. Parker will likely get selected in the middle rounds.

Analysis

Strengths

Parker has great size and deceptive speed. Well balanced player with a quick first step and the range to make plays outside of the tackle box. Locates the ball quickly and possesses active hands to shed and has the closing burst to get after the quarterback.

Weaknesses

Plays too high at times and can get blown off the ball. Does not have the lower body strength to anchor against double teams. Struggles with snap anticipation limiting his ability to get into solid initial position. Gets gassed too easily and effort is inconsistent at the end of games.
