Dallas Cowboys Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 1 - Pick Number: 12 (DAL)

Star line-backer for the Lions, Micah Parsons looks to be the top prospect at his position and a top 10 pick in the 2021 draft. Micah had a really strong 2019 season, finishing with over 100 tackles, 5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles (as well as being named the Big Ten's linebacker of the year and a finalist for the Butkus Award), and possibly with an eye to that impressive production decided not to opt in for the 2020 season. The 6'2" prospect is a dynamic player with the size, speed and athleticism that coaches love to see.

An instinctive player that can wreck havoc in the back field Micah is expected to be the long term solution in the middle of the field for a team for years to come (and expect him to start quickly - for the Lions he only started one game as freshman and yet led the team in tackles!).
