BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Spent most of his college career at right guard, also
seeing limited action at center.
POSITIVES: Parker is a fairly athletic blocker with good size and a large build for the next level. Health and intensity concerns will
push him into the late part of the draft, yet he offers potential as a backup for an NFL team.
NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork in space. Had surgery on both knees, which will throw a red flag.
ANALYSIS: Strong, small-area blocker large enough to engulfed defenders. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees, and is a solid position
blocker who seals defenders from the action. Displays good vision, keeps his head on a swivel, and is very strong. Anchors
in pass protection, gets movement run blocking, and easily controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack. Flashes
quickness if asked to pull across the line of scrimmage, and displays surprising skills blocking in motion.
