Demond Parker
Stephen Dunn/Allsport
He is a little guy that obviously does not have a lot of power, but he is capable of making big plays in the open field. He is quick, can make tacklers miss and has one of the better bursts and explosiveness in this group. He is excellent in the open field and if he gets through the line of scrimmage, he can break some big runs and he does a nice job of turning the corner. However, he is not well schooled in the passing game, which hinders his ability to be perceived as a nickel back. As a result, he is a backup type RB and possibly KOR on the NFL level that can possibly get 10-15 carries a game and contribute on special teams. He is not an every down player which will limit his draft status.
