Draft Rewind 2015: DeVante Parker, Miami Dolphins

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DEVANTE PARKER: Louisville, 6025, 209, 4.42. Three-year starter from Louisville, KY. He is a good enough athlete that Kentucky’s basketball coach John Calipari offered to let DeVante play basketball for the Wildcats while on football scholarship if he enrolled at Kentucky. Catches the ball at the highest point. Good playing quickness and speed. Rarely knocked off a route versus press coverage. Demonstrated an accelerated burst of speed to gain separation down the field after recovery from his foot surgery. The best think Parker does is track a deep ball in flight. He can make a twisting athletic move and adjust to the toughest of catches. Has the courage to go over the middle. Talented enough to be a first year impact starter. Excellent athlete with long frame. Very good at catching off target passes. Uses his length to shield off defenders well and makes a majority of his catches when contested. Above average short area quickness. Is physical and aggressive with the ball in his hands looking for extra yards. Good situational awareness. Finds the open holes in zone. He is a clever route runner. Uses short area quickness and quick hands to separate. He adjusts very well to mid-range balls, when he is facing the pass and on crossing patterns. He is a willing blocker. Could add bulk to his frame. Flashes top end, breakaway speed. Will have lapse in concentration drops. 2014 stats: 43-855, 19.9 ypr, 5 TD. OSR:12/40. First round. (A-33 1/4, H-9 1/4, VJ-36.5, SS-DNP).
