Parker (6-foot-2 5/8, 209 pounds) had 43 receptions for 855 yards (19.8 yards per catch) during the 2014 season despite missing the first six games with a foot injury. Parker had 55 receptions and 12 TD catches in 2013, when he was Teddy Bridgewater's go-to guy. His leaping ability (36.5-inch vertical leap), long arms (33 1/4 inches), height and wingspan (79 3/4 inches) give him an impressive catch radius.
"I think he's a phenomenal football player and very deserving of being a top-10 pick," Jeremiah said on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft" earlier this week. "In this draft, we have three big-time wide receivers, and when you put them all together, DeVante Parker very much belongs in that discussion."
Therein lies a rub of sorts for the Ravens: If Parker is indeed worthy of a top-10 pick, does Baltimore have any shot at getting him with their first-round pick, which is 26th?
Baltimore definitely needs to add a receiver (or two) in this draft, preferably someone who can become a legit No. 1 guy. Steve Smith was the only receiver with more than 50 catches last season, and he turns 36 in May. Parker definitely would be a nice -- and needed -- addition, but unless the Ravens move up, it's unlikely they'll be able to nab him. All six NFL Media analysts who have done mock drafts have Parker as a first-round selection, and each has him off the board no later than the 19th pick.
