The Chargers were one of 17 teams present at North Carolina A&T’s pro day where the main attraction was massive left tackle Brandon Parker, via Brant Wilkerson of the Winston-Salem Journal.
Told there were a total of 17 teams at Brandon Parker’s workout. Saw these: Raiders, Broncos, Jags, Lions, Jets, Colts, Falcons, Panthers, Giants, Chargers, 49ers, Packers, Browns.— Brant Wilkerson-New (@BrantGNR) April 2, 2018
Parker is a lengthy 6-foot-7, 314-pound offensive tackle that possesses prototypical size and fluidity for the position. As a draft prospect coming from a lower level of competition, it is incredibly important to not only be one of the players on the field but to absolutely dominant all the competition that comes your way. Parker did this and more as he took home back-to-back MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Year awards.
According to Brian Formica of WXII 12-NBC, Parker has already completed a private workout for the Chargers, among other teams, with several more scheduled for this week.

At his pro day, Parker stood on his combine numbers which included a 5.40 forty-yard dash, 28.5-inch vertical jump, 9-foot 3-inch broad jump, a 7.82-second 3-cone, and a 4.68-second short shuttle. He also put up 21 reps on the bench press prior to performing on-field drills.
Parker has started in each of his 36 career games played while playing a large role in the Aggies leading the MEAC in rushing yardage for three straight seasons. On top of two First-Team All-MEAC selections, Parker was also named a STATS First-Team All-American following the 2016 season.
The most impressive statistic of his career? Parker has never allowed a sack while at NC A&T.
Regardless of the level of competition, that’s definitely a stat to hang your hat on as an offensive lineman.
