he's a cowher style of runner. he's fast but can also but between the tackles for the hard 4 yards. and it is a rush-oriented offense. and he has been taking the goalline reps. personally, i don't see how there's two rounds of guys better than him.
Did you watch many steeler games? The dude is horrid between the tackles. He stutters steps and hesitates looking for a hole before running into the back of his o-linemen for no gain.
I agree somewhat but don't forget it was his first year starting and most young rb's have trouble being patient and hitting the holes inside.
I am anxious to see how Parker does this year. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt since he is young and should improve.
I'm not saying your wrong but I do think it is to early to label him as a guy that can't run between the tackles.
Warrick Dunn is a good inside runner and Parker is bigger than him so I don't think it is out of the question for him to improve in this area.
After this year I think we will have a pretty good idea what type of all around skills he has.
