There is a legitimate chance that Penn State Football All-American linebacker Micah Parsons will be the first defensive player chosen in the 2021 NFL Draft, and Parsons clearly has chosen a favorite potential destination.
Throughout the offseason, Parsons has dropped hints that he hopes to follow in the footsteps of Penn State Football legend Sean Lee to the Dallas Cowboys.
However, Saturday, Parsons took to his Instagram stories to make his strongest call yet to Jerry Jones, head coach Mike McCarthy, and the Dallas Cowboys to make sure his name is on their draft card when they go on the clock No. 10 overall:
Parsons, of course, played his final game at the home of the Cowboys; AT&T Stadium, when he was the Defensive MVP of the 2020 Cotton Bowl.
In Penn State Football’s 53-39 victory over Memphis, Parsons staked his claim to being one of the nation’s most dominant defenders, producing a game-high 14 total tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss, and two pass breakups.
Parsons would ultimately opt out of the Nittany Lions’ 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns and to focus on his preparation for the 2021 NFL Draft.
If Parsons gets his wish, he’d have the chance to join Lee in the linebacking corps and also play alongside All-Pro Leighton Vander Esch, forming one of the NFL’s most dynamic linebacking corps.
