Why Parris Campbell Is Here On The List: If he’s not the fastest receiver in the draft, he’ll be close enough to matter. Built well and blazing fast, he’s a do-it-all playmaker who just needs to get the ball in his hands and he’ll make something terrific happen.
There weren’t enough big plays averaging just over 12 yards per play, but he had his share of highlights to blow up in big moments. His 90 catches for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns last season showed off his volume-catching ability as he finally blew up as a senior, and now the sky is the limit.
With his speed, there’s a good chance he turns into better, stronger, more dangerous receiver at the next level – and he wasn’t all that bad as a collegian, either.
What The NFL Types Want To See: Just how sharp is he on the routes? It’s sort of silly to make a sweeping judgment on one Combine workout, but if he’s ultra-quick compared to the rest of the receiver in the drills, and if he comes up with the sub-4.4 everyone thinks he’ll have in the 40, the first round is a possibility.
Bottom Line: Even if he’s just a deep threat, he’ll be a brilliant one. It seems like he’s just scratching the surface on what he can become, with the fight and want-to to improve, the talent to go from great to special, and the unteachable speed that should make him special with a little bit more time and seasoning.
