We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.
2014 was Parker's senior season at the University of Louisville. He missed the first seven games of the season due to a broken bone in his foot. In the six games Parker played in, he recorded 43 receptions, 855 yards, and 5 touchdowns.
Imagine what his numbers would have been had Parker played a whole season.
Why he might progress:
I would love to see Parker have an Odell Beckham Jr. season. A kid can dream right?
Parker fits the Bill Lazor offense so well. He is going to catch anything that is thrown his way, his catch radius is huge.
I would be happy with a Jordan Matthews kind of season (67 receptions, 872 yards, 8 touchdowns).
Why he might regress:
I will be very disappointed if Parker cannot beat out Greg Jennings for a starting spot.
The last time the Dolphins drafted a wide receiver in the first round was in 2007 when they drafted Ted Ginn Jr. Ginn and his family were not very successful during their time in Miami.
I doubt Parker will be another Ginn though, just my opinion.
Chances he makes the 53-man roster:
Parker will be on the roster at the start of the season. Whether he is a starter or a backup is the bigger question. I believe he will be one of the starting receivers at the beginning of the season.
