BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing extensive action with the first team as a sophomore. Senior-year totals included 59/3/7 after 41/2/9 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Instinctive safety with marginal size/speed numbers. Reads the action, effectively patrols centerfield, and remains disciplined. Solid range to the sidelines and works well with cornerbacks.
NEGATIVES: Lacks closing and recovery speed as well as quickness in his game. Not real physical or aggressive defending the run.
ANALYSIS: Parker is a solid college defender with limited upside at the next level. He could be used as a backup in a zone system.
