BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman, posting 42/5/2 at defensive tackle then 40/15/2.5 as a sophomore. Academically ineligible last season and did not play.
POSITIVES: Fiery defender who plays with solid techniques and instincts. Gets leverage on opponents, works his hands throughout the action and wedges between blocks. Quickly locates the ball and goes hard until the whistle blows.
NEGATIVES: Lacks playing strength and can be turned off the line by opponents. Plays too much straight-line and struggles changing direction.
ANALYSIS: Possessing size, growth potential and adequate speed, Parker is a camp player who could be developed for the left side of a defensive line.
