Round Six: S Will Parks

Grade: B+

An early candidate for a draft steal is safety Will Parks. Parks has seen a lot of playing time through special teams and defense like his fellow rookie Justin Simmons. So far Parks has compiled 10 tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception. Simmons missed a couple of games allowing Parks to see action in the sub package.

Parks plays with energy and a mean streak that allows him to constantly be around the play. His interception came against the Bengals which essentially sealed up the win. The play of Parks and Simmons gave the Broncos coaching staff enough confidence to cut safety Shiloh Keo a key player in last years playoff run.

Expect to see Parks continue to see time on the defense and continue to be around the ball, which can lead to a few more turnovers on the stat sheet.
