Washington Redskins Draft Profile: Sean Parker, SS, Washington

Hogs Haven Draft Profile on strong safety Sean Parker. Should the Redskins try to draft or sign the versatile defensive back?

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Sean Parker

Strong Safety

Height: 5’10", Weight: 193 lbs.


Strengths: Parker is a good athlete and was a former 4-star recruit out of high school. He had 11 career interceptions and he was a two-time captain. Parker also has experience at free safety, nickel cornerback, and on special teams. Parker was productive while playing free safety and nickel cornerback, which speaks well to his versatility.

Weaknesses: Parker is a bit small for the safety position and he needs to get stronger to play the safety position at the NFL level. His tackling ability is questionable due to his lack of size and strength. Parker also has a reputation for being a hothead, which is not something NFL teams look for in players.

Bottom Line: At this point, Sean Parker is a long shot to be drafted or make an NFL roster next season. He is far too raw to be trusted on a depth chart. If he is a special teams standout, he could make it onto a roster and be a situational defensive player. Parker looks inconsistent on special teams, which is easily identified in Washington’s game against Stanford, so this outcome is unlikely in my opinion. He is more likely to be a priority free agent after the draft based on his athleticism and experience at multiple positions.

Projected round: 7-FA

Team he fits best on: Anyone who needs defensive back depth and special teams help…so everyone.
