Overall, a very versatile and athletic defender. He has tremendous range and is able to fly around the football field. He struggles a bit to diagnose the full football field and this could be due to his lack of starting experience. Has trouble overcommitting to run lanes and also determining where exactly a RB is going to end up. Good tackler, but shouldn't be viewed as an all-world talent. Struggles to wrap up defenders occasionally and allow them to pick up additional yardage. Good at navigating through traffic and shedding blocks at the second level. Especially excels at this in one-on-one situations at the LOS. Shows promise as an EDGE rusher. Would love to see more from a toughness and competitive standpoint. Athletic enough to drop back in zone coverage, but still needs to learn the finer nuances of dropping back. Seems to be more lost and making it up as he goes rather than dropping back with purpose and keeping his hips and eyes trained on the QB. Great lateral mobility and athletic enough to jump multiple gaps at the LOS. Tremendous speed and agility. Won't break records at the Combine, but a great athlete for his size with good change of direction ability. Will fit best in a versatile scheme that will allow him plenty of opportunities to go get the QB. Will need development in what he's asked to do as a LB, but certainly can get there. However, shows the chops to be a dangerous force off the edge with bend.

Micah Parsons selected No. 12 by Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have selected Micah Parsons with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Despite losing Dak Prescott for most of the season last year, the Dallas defense was one of the main storylines for the team. Sean Lee is retiring, and Leighton Vander Esch has dealt with a number of injuries, so Parsons comes in as an immediate starter and potential leader of a new-look defense in Dallas.
