Contrevious Parks Scouting Report

As announced previously in this space, Comcast has generously agreed to support the best NFL community around -- us! As part of that effort, between now and the end of the 2010 NFL season Comcast will be sponsoring a variety of special editorial and interactive features on our site.

WR Contrevious Parks (Stephen F. Austin) - Undrafted Free Agent

Contrevious Parks is one of two undrafted free agent wide receivers the Lions signed after the draft.  Mike Moore, the receiver from Georgia, is the other.  Moore is a few inches bigger than Parks, who seems like a slot receiver more than anything.  He is listed as being 5-10, 190 pounds, but that might even be a little generous.

Experts' Opinions

In-game (last November against Southeastern Louisiana) scouting report from Draft Nasty:

Only recorded 3 catches for 15 yards vs. Southeastern but is another shifty WO that can also return punts. I think Parks is shiftier rather than fast and he has the ability to make defenders miss when he has the ball. I don't think he has the speed to be a "home run hitter" to take it the distance but possesses the athletic ability to make something out of nothing. He did fumble the ball (11:23/ 2nd quarter) but I don't think this should be a concern. I think he is a free agent player that will need to keep refining his skills. 

(Note: this was the only scouting report I could find.)

Outlook for 2010

Just like Mike Moore, Parks' chances of sticking around with the Lions are likely dependent on what happens with the practice squad more than anything.  He sort of even seems like a bit of a long shot for that, although that may just be because there is such little information available on Parks.  Either way, he will have to work really hard to get a shot at sticking with the Lions beyond the final round of roster cuts.
