Get to know Dolphins latest signing Timon Parris

Share This Post

Timon Parris becomes the latest Miami Dolphins signing along the offensive line. Hailing from Elmont New York, the 6’6″ 320 pounds tackle has bounced around a few teams in the last year having originally signed as an UDFA with Washington in 2018.

Parris is an extremely raw prospect having played just 232 snaps at Stony Brook, although PFF graded him a solid 81.7 in his his final year as a pass blocker. His run blocking leaves a lot to be desired, grading out at 61.1 on 44 run block snaps in 2017. However, his size, wingspan, and athleticism will be what has him on teams radar.


The best way to describe Timon Parris is as having potential. He has played just six offensive snaps in the NFL in jumbo sets for Washington in 2018 and gave away 1 penalty. He also played 14 snaps of special teams over 3 games in the 2019 season after being signed to the Washington active roster to stop him being poached from the practice squad.

However, Dan Brugler had this to say about Parris before the draft, “Parris started 41 games at FCS-level Stony Brook and earned respect from scouts, but he missed the final five games of 2017 with a fractured fibula in his right leg. The injury kept him sidelined for the Senior Bowl.”

Another analyst, Lance Zierlein, had this to say “Parris is a developmental prospect with medical concerns that could cause him to drop some, but he has the potential to move inside and become a solid backup guard with eventual starter ability if healthy.”

Until he broke his leg in his Senior year, Timon Parris was projected as high as the fifth round by some analysts. He’s a smart kid who is willing to learn, but he’s bounced around a few teams in the last year. It will be an uphill struggle for Parris to make the roster, but he has an outside shot to stick on the practice squad.
