Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors and made 63 tackles with one sack, one forced fumble and six pass breakups in 2017. Named Honorable Mention All-Big 12 in 2015 and 2016. Recorded 63 tackles (three for loss), two interceptions and four PBUs as a junior. Posted 60 tackles (four for loss), 1.5 sacks and four pass breakups as a sophomore. Started four games as a true freshman and made 31 tackles with one sack and six PBUs.
Pos: 
Hard-working safety with solid instincts but limited measurables. Stays with the action, effectively reads and diagnoses plays and gives effort. Physical and attempts to force fumbles and strip the ball away. Defeats blocks on his way up the field and is a solid open-field tackler.
Neg: 
Looks and plays like an average athlete. Lacks closing and recovery speed.
Analysis: 
Parker gets the most from his ability but has athletic limitations for the next level. He offers possibilities as a zone safety but must stand out on special teams.
