BIO: Full-time starter the past three seasons totaling 63 tackles as a senior after 40 tackles and seven pass breakups the prior season. Played safety as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Athletic defender best making plays up the field. Runs well, displays a burst of closing speed and strong at the point of attack. Aggressive, likes to mix it up and squares into tackles. Alert in the secondary, plays to his size-speed numbers and forces the action.
NEGATIVES: Struggles in man coverage, cannot stay with receivers out of their breaks nor is he fluid in transition. Does not turn back to the pass or track the throw in the air and lacks anticipation.
ANALYSIS: A physically gifted specimen, Parker has been out of position at cornerback the past two years and is best served in center field. Has the size to be a dominating presence on the inside and displays solid ball skills facing the quarterback.
