Mark Parson CB 5í10 192 Ohio

By: Robert Davis

Parson enrolled early at Ohio to get a jump on his playing career, in hopes of seeing the field as a true freshman. He did just that, and finished the season with 17 tackles, two for loss, and two sacks while also spending some time as a punt returner. As a sophomore, he totaled 44 tackles, two for loss, and his first career interception. Parson had similar numbers as a junior in 2007, finishing the season with 49 tackles, one for loss, and two interceptions.


Parson is a feisty corner that plays bigger than his size. He is very tough and very active on the football field. He is a good tackler than is not afraid to come up to the line in run support or get physical with the receiver at the line of scrimmage. In pass coverage, he has the quickness to mirror a receiverís moves throughout the route. He is very good at keeping his man from catching the football when the action is in front of him. Parson also has experience returning kicks and punts, which could help him earn a roster spot.


Parson has only average size and average speed as far as NFL corners go. He has good ball skills, but has only three picks to show for it. He can break up plays on intermediate routes but has trouble down the field because of his lack of size.


Parson is the type of guy that seems to find a way to do his job, no matter what the situation. Even if he isnít the biggest, fastest, or if he doesnít make the most plays, he is a corner that does a good job of keeping his man from catching the football. That type of ability should allow him to play on Sundays, even if he doesnít have the upside of other corners selected ahead of him.
