Bio: 
Two-year starter who began the 2016 season at right tackle but returned as the starter at right guard after missing four games with a knee injury. Named Honorable Mention Conference USA in 2015 in his first year with the Owls after redshirting in 2014. Spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons at Central Florida.
Pos: 
College center who also spent time at left tackle. Possesses outstanding size, stays square and shows the ability to overwhelm opponents. Fights with his hands throughout the action, correctly places them into opponents and steers defenders from the play. Effective with the shotgun snap, keeps his head on a swivel and immediately recognizes blitzes.
Neg: 
Struggles to adjust and is more of a small-area blocker. Late getting into blocks. Bends at the waist and does a lot of clutching and grabbing opponents.
Analysis: 
Parfitt is a size prospect who must improve his fundamentals as well as his conditioning but is worth consideration on a practice squad this fall.
