Conference: Colonial Athletic
40 Time: 4.97
Biography: Three year starter awarded all-American and all-Conference honors the past two years. Senior totals included 96/13.5/5.5 after 75/15.5/6.5 as a junior.
Positives: "Productive small school defensive lineman with average size/speed numbers for the next level. Displays good movement skills, fluid down the line of scrimmage and displays a burst of speed to the play. Uses his hands well, keeps his feet moving and covers a good amount of area on the field. Gets off the snap with a quick first step, quick changing direction or immediately alters his angle of attack to chase the action."
Negatives: "Does not consistently play with good pad level, gets tall and makes himself an easy target for opponents. Easily knocked off balance by the first block or handled by a single opponent. Marginal skill in pursuit."
Analysis: Parker was a top defender at Richmond the past three seasons and is a solid NFL prospect that offers a good amount of upside. He's best suited to play on a four-man line and has the movement skills necessary to be used as a three technique lineman.
