Thought I would give some info on the RB since I have been preaching we needed someone in the draft to help @ RB. I still think we pick up a FA. 5'11", 224, 4.469 Strengths: Displays good patience along with solid vision when running between the tackles. Shows sound lateral movement near the line of scrimmage, finds cutback lanes and does a nice job of getting vertical after cuts. Displays natural ability to turn shoulder pads and get skinny when running through small openings. Does a sound job of keeping his feet churning upon contact and will fall forward to end runs. Finishes runs along boundary turning upfield for extra yards instead of dipping out of bounds. Shows good balance and shakes off would-be arm tacklers. Stays alert, plays with a mean streak and can cut blitzing linebackers to the ground when asked to help out in pass protection. Snatches the ball out of the air and isn't going to drop many passes that should catch. Has experience returning kickoffs, has flashed big-play potential in that role and can contribute on special teams. Weaknesses: Lacks prototypical power for a back with his size and is going to have problems pushing the pile in short-yardage situations. Isn't quick enough to turn the corner with any consistency in the NFL and lacks the second gear to outrun defenders when gets into space. Takes too long to change directions and isn't going to make many defenders. Lacks suddenness and isn't elusive enough to make defenders miss in the open field. Puts the ball on the ground too much and needs to work on pressure points as a ball carrier. Does not run efficient routes and will have trouble separating from man coverage at the next level. Overall: In his first two seasons at Toledo (2004-'05), Parmele appeared in 20 games as a reserve. He ran for 477 yards and six touchdowns on 106 carries (4.5 average) and eight receptions for 65 yards. As a junior in 2006, Parmele became the Rockets' starter, gaining 1,131 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 207 carries (5.5 average) and adding 16 receptions for 128 yards (8.0 average) in 12 games. He topped that performance last season, averaging 125.9 rushing yards in 12 games (good for ninth in the country). He ran for a total of 1,511 yards and 14 touchdowns on 276 carries (5.5 average) as a senior, adding 17 receptions for 157 yards (9.2 average) and a touchdown. Parmele also had a career 25 kickoff returns for 628 yards (25.1 average) and a TD. Although he is big and runs with purpose, Parmele lacks the overall power, speed and athleticism to be a featured back at the next level. With a few years of development he has the potential to be a number three back and should be able to contribute on special teams. This is why Parmele projects as a late round pick or rookie free agent.
