After the Arizona Wildcats' Pro Day back on March 23rd, Will Parks was confident that he would be drafted based on the feedback he received. Now, it seems as if he is one of the hottest commodities league-wide, making a rise up many draft boards.
We're under two weeks away from draft day, where he'll be back home with his family hoping to hear his name called at some point throughout the three-day experience. Whether he's looked at as a fifth rounder or seventh rounder, it's unclear. But it's pretty evident there's no way he doesn't get drafted, as he was told during Arizona Pro Day.
It's great to see that a lot of organizations who have a plan in place and know how to draft extremely well are the teams looking into him. If he can land in the right spot and find a home as a rotational guy to begin his career, he could have himself a long career in the NFL. He has a lot of versatility, able to play both free safety and nickel corner.
The NFL is starting to adapt on defense, needing more versatility than ever. We're especially going to see this with Paul Magloire a year from now. Parks, who measured in at 6-foot-1, 205 lbs, ran a 4.51 40 at Pro Day, put up 21 reps of 225lbs on the bench and posted a vertical jump of 31.5 inches.
The Dallas Cowboys spent a good amount of time with Safety Will Parks from Arizona at his pro day. Would be a solid late-round or UDFA— Paul Maland (@FantasyProsNFL) March 28, 2016
Happy the Cowboys checked out Arizona's Will Parks. Rangy safety that could be a steal on Day 3.— Jonah Tuls (@JonahTulsNFL) March 26, 2016
