- CProjectionRound 6
Strong Points: Height and reach (36" arms). Productive 2018 (85 receptions and 13 TDs). Open even when covered closely because of his size and receiving radius. Catches the ball cleanly. Finds open areas in zone coverage. Athletic for his size.
Weak Points: Limited playing experience -- only played two years in high school. Narrow frame and marginal growth potential. Must get stronger. One-speed runner without a burst. Only adequate as a blocker. Plays at a lower level of competition.
The Way We See It: Parham is a very raw player who was productive at a lower level of comp. He wins because of his size and length, but he is not ready to contribute in the NFL. His route running and blocking require work. Parham has upside because he is athletic for his size, but he is a work in progress who most likely will need a year on the practice squad. He will get drafted because of what coaches and evaluators believe he can become, not what he is.
