Parker Washington Scouting Report
Per NFL Draft Buzz, Washington has the following strengths and weaknesses:
- He’s also a catch-and-run threat, a creative runner who has good vision in the open field; he’ll be an option to return kicks as well
- Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback’s best friend – passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he’ll come down with it
- Washington has the athleticism, quick feet and functional strength to set the edge and open running lanes
- He’s coordinated with soft, reliable hands, and he shows the ability to adjust to balls thrown behind him, as well as a knack for digging out low throws
- Washington seems comfortable in traffic to the point where Washington doesn’t make the effort to create separation
- Physically, he profiles as a guy who should have success facing the quarterback, but he struggles to gear down and make the necessary sharp cuts to create separation underneath

Would Parker Washington Fit on the Packers?
I love the fit for Washington on the Packers. The Packers have a need at slot receiver and Washington fits in perfectly. Reliable hands are something the Packers need after a rough year of drops. He isn’t useless in run-blocking either, something many receivers his size struggle with.
Check Out Another Prospect That Could Fit For the Packers
There are a lot of WR prospects in this mid-round range. GM Brian Gutekunst and the Packers will have a lot of evaluating to do in order to figure out which prospects fit and which don’t. I wouldn’t expect the Packers to draft a first round receiver this year with how much value is there in the later rounds.
