BIO: Two-year starter who also saw action with the first team as a sophomore. Senior numbers included 24/8/5.
POSITIVES: Under-sized defensive lineman who can be used at nose tackle or in a three-technique position. Quick off the snap, fluid changing direction and rarely off his feet. Plays with terrific pad level getting leverage on opponents and explosive shooting gaps upfield. Makes plays down the line of scrimmage displaying the ability to pursue laterally to the flanks.
NEGATIVES: Stymied at the point or swallowed up by a single blocker. Marginal growth potential.
ANALYSIS: Playing well at the end of his senior campaign, Parker could find a home as a backup.
