Speed is a great asset... once you come clear of the coverage. But you have to have the technique and fundamentals to get open and clear of your defender first. Parris had to learn to be an effective receiver at the collegiate level before that speed meant anything. Teddy Ginn Jr was one of the fastest players at Ohio State, and a former HS track star. But it took him awhile to learn to be a receiver at the collegiate level, which impacted his productivity his first few seasons. All opposing defenses had to do was to bracket him with a deep safety on top, and a physical corner underneath to knock him off his rotes early in his career.
