There are plenty of backs that are Parkers size that DO run between the tackles but they aren't too small....Portis, Alexander, Tomlinson, to name a couple....all simialr in size. It's not just the size of a running back that makes them durable...its how they run. It's not fair to say he's unable to be a feature back until he's given the opportunity.

Just to back rowdf, here are some #'s

All feature backs listed...

P. Holmes 5'9" 213lbs
Tiki Barber 5'10" 200lbs
C.Portis 5'11" 205lbs
Julius Jones 5'9" 205lbs
Tomlinson 5'!0" 221lbs

Our future feature back....
Fast Willie 5'10" 209lbs

I really don't see a problem with his size and he's still a growing boy.
