 Update

  01/27/18 - Top 15 Senior Bowl Performers: 12. Brandon Parker, OT, North Carolina A&T ...After an impressive weigh-in (6-foot-7, 303 pounds, 35 3/8-inch arms), Parker held his own against the top senior pass rushers in the country. He was aggressive with his punch while shuffling his feet to ride rushers past the corner. Parker's large wingspan (85 1/4-inches), wide base and coordinated feet are great foundation traits for a NFL team to develop. Scouts thought top-100 was possible for him during the season and he has lived up to those expectations. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

2/22/17 - 2017 WALTER CAMP FCS ALL-AMERICA TEAM: OL Brandon Parker, North Carolina A&T,...Going into the Celebration Bowl game on Dec. 16 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Parker had played 656 snaps with 48 knockdown blocks and an 84 percent average grade. The Aggies offense produced 5,122 yards over 12 games as the Aggies won their second black college football national championship in three years with Parker as the Aggies leader on the offensive line. -

12/20/17 - 2017 AFCA FCS COACHES' FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: OL Brandon Parker, 6-7 309, RSr., North Carolina A&T Rod Broadway Kannapolis, N.C. (A.L. Brown),...The count is adding up for Parker who earned his third straight offensive lineman of the year award from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in November to go along with his third straight first-team All-MEAC honor. Last week, Parker became only the fourth first-team Associated Press All-American in school history joining defensive end Chris McNeil (1997), return specialist Curtis Deloatch (2001) and running back Tarik Cohen (2016).

12/15/16 - 2016 MEAC OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES/MEDIA): North Carolina A&T State’s Brandon Parker was selected as the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Offensive Lineman of the Year, for the second consecutive year...Parker started all 12 games for the Aggies, at left tackle, this season. He paved the way for the MEAC’s top scoring offense (35.2 points/game), 12th nationally. North Carolina A&T State led the MEAC in rushing offense averaging 203.8 yards per game, with 27 rushing touchdowns. Parker led an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks in the conference (13th nationally), while amassing 2,385 passing yards and 26 receiving touchdowns. The Aggies had seven games with 400-plus yards of total offense including three games of 500 yards or better. On the ground, the offensive line paved the way for six games with 200-plus rushing yards with a high of 313 yards.


 Overview

  Parker is out to prove that flashy Chicago Bears rookie Tarik Cohen wasn't the only future NFL player to sign with the Aggies in 2014.

And if the Senior Bowl was any indication, he is well on his way towards accomplishing that goal.

Measuring in at a prototypical, 6-foot-7, 323 pounds with 35 3/8" arms and 85 1/4" wingspan, Parker was one of the big winners at the Senior Bowl weigh-in and his performance in Mobile against elite competition only turned more heads as the week went on.

Of course, those who watched him dominate the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference for the undefeated and national champion Aggies expected as much. Led by Parker at left tackle, A&T became the first FCS historically black to finish untied and unbeaten since Division I-AA play began 39 years ago and the only team in school history (74 years) to not suffer a defeat, beating Grambling State 21-14 in the Celebration Bowl.

It is not a stretch to say that Parker was the team's foundation. He started all 48 games of his college career, not allowing a single sack during that time. His success is all the more impressive given Parker's humble beginning.

Parker fell through the cracks as a high school recruit, not landing a single FBS offer. He signed with North Carolina A&T in large part because his older sister, Jasmine, played basketball there. He also received offers came from North Carolina Central and Winston Salem-State.

He was the first Aggie to win MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Year since Qasim Mitchell did it in 2001, taking home the biggest personal accolade for a blocker at this level after each of the past three seasons.

BACKGROUND
Led his team to an 8-4 record as a senior...Played three varsity seasons under Mike Newsome and Ron Massey at A.L. Brown, where he was a starter for two years...Ranked 46th in the state by Max Preps...His team averaged 287 yards rushing per game, and completed 62.4 percent of its passes...Graduated Cum Laude from A.L. Brown. Majored in electrical engineering at North Carolina A&T.


 Analysis

  STRENGTHS
Parker looks the part of an NFL tackle with rare height, arm length and a well-distributed musculature including thick limbs and a powerful base. He shows good initial quickness and coordinated footwork in his initial kick-slide, calmly easing out of his stance and catching opponents with his long arms, excelling in pass protection when he keeps his knees bent and his feet sliding to mirror. He possesses the agility and balance to mirror edge rushers. Shows very good core strength and flexibility to handle bull rushers, bending at the knees and popping his hips forward to absorb without getting walked into the pocket. While a bit sporadic with his hand placement in the running game, Parker's length and leg drive make him an effective drive blocker. He looks for work in this area, hustling to the second level and cutting off opponents from ball-carriers to provide effective downfield blocks, albeit not always physically engaging defenders. Terrific durability with no known injuries to date. - Rob Rang 1/27/2018

WEAKNESSES
Not the sum of his parts... Gets fundamentally lazy, at times relying upon his length to force pass rushers outside and failing to keep his feet sliding, getting stuck in the mud as he makes contact with opponents. Possesses a high cut frame and struggles with pad level, too often getting tossed aside by shorter, stouter defenders when attempting to run block. Needs to show more accuracy and explosiveness with his initial strike, showing the ability to steer defenders in the running game but struggling to latch on and control and failing to sustain his blocks for long. Not the dancing bear that his size and pass blocking success indicates... A bit heavy-footed, showing good but not elite initial quickness and agility in pass protection and actually lumbering a bit when adjusting to second-level targets in the running game. - Rob Rang 1/27/2018

COMPARES TO
Jared Veldheer, Cardinals - The 6-8, 321 pound Veldheer has emerged as a quality NFL tackle after initially getting drafted in the third round by Oakland out of tiny Hillsdale College back in 2010. If Parker develops Veldheer's physicality and commitment to technique, he too, has the starter kit necessary to make a successful leap to the NFL.

IN OUR VIEW
Parker starred at left tackle for the Aggies but the majority of his snaps came at right tackle at the Senior Bowl. He possesses immense potential but to reach it, Parker needs to add some glass to his diet and some dynamite to his hands, winning at the FCS level despite a finesse playing style that simply won't cut it against NFL defenders.
