Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: At 6'3 with long arms, soft hands and superb leaping ability, Parker is as tough of a receiver to defend as there is anywhere in the country as he utilizes great body control and timing to win any ball thrown in his vicinity regardless of how well-covered he is. After the catch, Parker demonstrates impressive shiftiness despite being a long-strider and has a nice second gear to create distance once he's in the open field.

WEAKNESSES: Parker's initial burst and quickness off the line is only marginal, so he'll need to continue improving with his hands to routinely beat press coverage, and he lacks elite straight-line speed to separate vertically. He's also still developing as a route-runner as he lacks sharpness on cuts, and doesn't always work his way back to the ball, but he has shown steady improvement in this area.

Parker has first-round talent, and will certainly be a consideration there with another season like the last two.

--Derek Stephens (8/18/14)

Player Overview

A two-time first-team all-conference honoree in the BIG EAST/AAC with 28 career TD receptions, including a school record-tying 12 last season, Parker has developed into one of the most reliable and consistent pass-catchers in the country while steadily progressing from a raw athlete to a skilled wideout over his three years at Louisville.

Player News
08/22/2014 - Louisville says wide receiver Devante Parker injured his left foot during practice and will be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon in Charlotte, North Carolina, soon. The school announced the injury in a news release and said there is no timetable for Parker's return. Parker was injured during practice at Papa John's Stadium on Friday and evaluated by team physicians. He will visit Dr. Bob Anderson in Charlotte "in the next couple days for further evaluation and management," the release said. The 6-foot-3 senior passed up a chance to jump to the NFL after his junior season, when he had 55 receptions for 885 yards and a school-record 12 touchdown catches. The Cardinals begin their first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference on Labor Day night when they host Miami. - AP Sports
