Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker had nine receptions for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 36-9 Florida Citrus Bowl victory over Miami.

Parker actually left the game during Louisville's second series with an ankle injury. He was tended to by the team's medical team and returned in the second quarter, much to Miami's chagrin. Parker's 26-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter tied Ibn Green's Cardinals' record for TD receptions in a season (12), originally set in 1998. Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target would be wise to return to school for another year, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him declare for the draft.

Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker will likely return to school if he does not receive an evaluation in the first-round range, according to his grandfather Willie.

"If they're not projecting him near the first round, he's definitely going to be back for his senior year," Willie Parker said. The junior has some talent, most notably in red zone situations, and he has become Teddy Bridgewater's favorite target. He does not matchup up with other top prospects at the position, however.

Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker had nine receptions for 104 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's overtime win over Cincinnati.

Parker leads the Cardinals with 11 touchdown receptions. Parker (6-foot-3, 209 pounds) uses his excellent size to full advantage in the red zone. He isn't a burner, but Parker is quick enough to beat press coverage.

Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) missed Thursday's game against Rutgers.

Parker suffered the shoulder injury last week against Temple. An MRI must have given player and team pause, but neither party is required to disclose medical information to the public. Parker leads the Cardinals with 21 receptions for 375 yards and six touchdowns. We should soon know more about his ongoing status.

Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker "needs to learn to use his size better," according to NFL.com's Mike Huguenin.

"Parker (6-3, 209) has excellent size, and though he doesn't have elite speed, he is quick and can get off press coverage," Huguenin writes. In 2012, Parker did register 10 touchdowns on 40 receptions, and he could emerge as Teddy Bridgewater's top option.

Louisville junior WR DeVante Parker impressed Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench on film.

"Parker is quick and plays fast on film," Muench tweeted. "If he gets stronger and more consistent catching away from frame watch out." Expect the junior to be Teddy Bridgewater's primary target this season.
