Parris is a long, athletic tackle prospect with some nasty in his game who did not receive much recruiting hype coming out of Long Island. But he's blossomed as a starter for the Seawolves, earning first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors in his second year as a full-time starter at left tackle in 2016. Parris was a second-team all-conference player at left tackle the season before. As a redshirt freshman, Parris lined up at right tackle for two contests and 10 on the left tackle.

Overview
Parris is a good looking physical specimen with thick arms and weight distributed properly throughout his frame. While he has a tendency to lose his knee bend and overall pad level too often, it's hard to ignore his impressive foot quickness in his pass sets. Even with those pretty feet, his delayed punch and propensity to play too far out over his toes could cause a balance issue that could be tough to correct. Parris is a developmental prospect with medical concerns that could cause him to drop some, but he has the potential to move inside and become a solid backup guard with eventual starter ability if healthy.
Strengths
  • Four-year starter
  • Carries good lean muscle mass with a tapered frame and density in his arms
  • Lateral footwork is impressive
  • Able to open hips and take a long stride inside to stuff b-gap blitzers
  • Pounds the turf with quick, choppy feet both in pass slides and lateral movement as run blocker
  • Feet are sudden and controlled
  • Works into a squared blocking position when physically possible
  • Has reactive ability to catch inside counters
  • Able to adjust kick-slide versus speed at the top of the arc
  • Will look ugly sometimes, but finds ways to adjust his hips and feet to stay in front of defenders
  • Has some snap in upper body to launch opponents on wash down blocks
Weaknesses
  • Hips bend, but knees lock out
  • Will go from looking fluid to stiff in the same rep
  • Tall pad level allows defender to muscle under him and play through the edge
  • Lacks drive blocking to widen out NFL opponents consistently
  • Has limited range as a move blocker
  • Straight-liner in space and doesn't respond successfully against moving targets on second level
  • Would like to see a little more nasty from him as a finisher
  • Late to the party with his hands
  • Opponents usually land first
  • Needs to keep hands punch-ready
  • Plays out over toes hampering balance
  • Will fall forward when his punch is discarded by aggressive hand fighting
