A no-star recruit who weighed 260 pounds out of high school, Parker went to North Carolina A&T and started all 48 games in his career at left tackle. He won the MEAC lineman of the year award three times and earned first-team FCS All-America honors as a senior.
Parker was invited to the Senior Bowl and showed off his potential in Mobile despite some down moments.
Parker, whose dad played at North Carolina and is a high school coach, isn't ready to play now. But he has undeniable NFL-caliber tools, making him an ideal developmental left tackle prospect. With 35-inch arms and a wingspan approaching 85 inches, he can be stifling in pass protection. Parker did not allow a quarterback sack in 48 collegiate starts. He also shows off light, athletic feet and uses proper pad-level and hip roll to deliver pop in the run game.
Parker has long legs and carries his pads too high with a tendency to play upright.Underwhelming power, and NFL strength could be a problem until he adds more muscle. The challenge for Parker is to become more precise and powerful with his hands to maximize his length.
