New England Patriots were represented at Stanford’s pro day on Thursday, according to Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Insider and Walter Football, after director of player personnel Nick Caserio met with nose tackle prospect David Parry “for a few hours” on Wednesday.

Parry, projected as a possible third-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, was a former walk-on and a fifth-year senior for the Cardinal football team in 2014.

The 6-foot-1, 308-pound rotational defensive lineman finished his collegiate career having totaled 91 tackles, 6.5 sacks and two batted passes over 53 games, with 7.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks arriving over 12 games last fall.

Parry was named to the Pac-12 All-Academic first team and was a conference honorable mention. He later earned an invite to the East-West Shrine Game in January, then the NFL Scouting Combine in February.

Parry benched 34 reps of 225 pounds, posted a 29-inch vertical and 103-inch broad jump, and ran 5.38-second 40-yard dash in Indianapolis, where he was alongside teammates in wideout Ty Montgomery, offensive tackle Andrus Peat, defensive end Henry Anderson, cornerback Alex Carter and safety Jordan Richardson.
