Parker should offer immediate help to UW secondary

Washington started six different players at safety last year, so even with five of those six guys back in 2010, Sean Parker should be in the mix to see significant action -- or even start.

While no Huskies safety earned even honorable mention All-Pac-10 honors, senior Nate Williams was fairly steady at strong safety, ranking third on the team with 62 tackles, with five coming for a loss.

But as far as having an elite, ball-hawking athlete in centerfield at free safety? No.

So this from his recruiting profile should make Washington fans feel pretty good: "Parker is an exceptional athlete that can play a multiple number of positions. He is especially impressive as a safety and return specialist. Even though he lacks ideal size, he is extremely active and is a big play maker both sides of the football and on special teams. A very aggressive safety that reads and reacts very well and isn't afraid of contact."
