2021 NFL Draft: Cowboys Select Penn St LB Micah Parsons

The Dallas Cowboys traded down from 10th to the 12th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and selected Linebacker Micah Parsons from Penn State. Dallas acquired a 3rd-round pick (84th overall) from the Philadelphia Eagles in the trade.

Parsons joins the Cowboys with the linebacker position in unstable condition. After declining play from Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch, Parsons should push for immediate playing time and provides insurance against one of these players departing after the season.

Dallas traded down after coveted prospects Penei Sewell, Jaycee Horn and Patrick Surtain II all came off the board at the 7th-10th picks. The Eagles selected WR Devonta Smith after moving up to 10th.

The Cowboys next pick is 44th overall in the 2nd Round. However, now with three picks in the 3rd-round to use, they could easily be looking to move up and grab another 1st-Round target. They could easily move back into tonight’s action with the picks at their disposal.

But for now, we welcome Micah Parsons to the Dallas Cowboys!

  1. One great Penn St LB, Sean Lee, departing, and one coming in, Micah Parsons. Plus we gained an extra pick! Interesting thought, Jess, moving up back into the 1st rd.

  2. Love it , got the guy i was wanting and got a 3rd too ,

    @VAM , Idk if they’ll trade up in 1st , but i think trading up and having another 2nd rounder might happen with all the 3rds we have now

  3. Yeah it sucks not getting a top CB but upgrading the heart of our Defense was a solid move and we added an extra 3rd to do so. I think we go after a S in the 2nd and then try and get Richard Sherman to sign after the draft

  4. What a terrific start to the draft. We get arguably the best defensive player in the draft and pick up a 3rd rounder. Next pick is likely CB. The added draft capital gives us great options.
