Miami Dolphins receiver DeVante Parker came into the season viewed as a bust from the 2015 NFL Draft class. On Sunday, he continued to prove that narrative wrong with an absurd catch-and-run against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 6-foot-3 receiver put his size and great hands on display by leaping over Philadelphia’s cornerback to haul in the football right above his head. Parker then turned his body around as he came to the ground and kept his balance along the sideline to take it in for the 43-yard touchdown.

Despite playing on one of the NFL’s worst offenses, the 26-year-old is showing that he’s ready to be an impact receiver. He entered Sunday with 695 receiving yards and four touchdowns, numbers he’ll only blow past with plays like this.
