2009 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Anthony Parker, OL, Tennessee

Parker has a lot of things going for him, but also a lot of things going against him. First the good: he started 12 games as a sophomore in 2006 and all 14 of Tennessee's games as a junior last season. Parker has been used at right guard and left guard. Paving the way for an extremely successful rushing attack in Knoxville last year, Parker was name a consensus First-Team All-SEC performer by both the coaches and the media. He is not huge compared to linemen nowadays (6'3 and 300 pounds), but he can run under 5.0 in the 40-yard dash. Now for the bad: the Volunteers are enduring a brutal 2008 campaign so everyone's stock is suffering. Minor injury concerns also surround Parker. He missed the Outback Bowl in his sophomore season with a knee injury and he had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee during this pre-season. Nonetheless, he has hardly missed any playing time. And last for the ugly: character questions could come up, as Parker was arrested this January for disorderly conduct when police officers tried to disperse a crowd. Despite all that, Parker should be off the board no later than the third round if he can stay healthy, out of trouble, and end this trying season on a positive note.
