    Micah Parsons Voted No. 16 in NFL’s Top-100 Players List

    The NFL's top 100 players of 2022, voted on by the players themselves, concluded this past Sunday with Micah Parsons revealed as the highest-rated Cowboy at no. 16.

    CeeDee Lamb (95), Tyron Smith (92), Zack Martin (68), Dak Prescott (44), and Trevon Diggs (23) also landed on the list. The unanimous made his first appearance on the list as a rookie; he topped some impressive players who have made an impact in the league for several years.

    In his first season as a pro, Parsons made the , was a first-team All-Pro, DROY, and finished second in voting for AP . He set the bar extremely high for his rookie season and has challenged himself to be even better.

    Parsons registered 84 total tackles, 20 of those were for a loss, 13 , three forced fumbles, three pass breakups, and 30 hits. His goal for this upcoming season? To break the Cowboys sack record, set by with 20 in 2008. Parsons has publicly spoken about breaking the sack record and will not settle for anything less than 15.

    With the addition of , Parsons might have room for growth. Even if Barr plays 60% of the snaps, when he is in the game, it will allow Parsons to line up anywhere he wants, create pressure, and not worry about the lack of coverage from the position. Barr is not the most excellent cover LB, but he is better than anyone else they could have brought in. He is an upgrade on the , and it helps the best thing about this team and adds veteran to that side of the football, which can be huge for .

    is the key to this season's success, and Parsons will need to be the player he was a season ago. Finishing second in the defensive player of the year ranking as a rookie is no joke, and the future is bright for him as long as he stays healthy. By the time he retires, he will have both the Cowboys' single-season and all-time sack record.

    My official of Parsons for next season are 95 total tackles, 17.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and one interception. He will finish as a first-team All-Pro and second in the defensive player of the year voting for the second consecutive year, only behind either or T.J. Watt. Parsons can only do so much, but the defense goes as he goes, and they feed off his energy, and for a second-year player to already have that type of impact on a team speaks volumes.

    The sky is his limit; I hope he does not get distracted by being a weekly guest on Undisputed. This idea might have been better during the , but I hope the best player on the defense does not get sidetracked by this.

    i agree with MP at 16, not with TD at 23 and DP at 44, especially with ZM at 68. Martin is better than both. But Guards don’t get the same love as do QBs and apparently CBs. MP is the best player on D, and ZM is the best player on O, IMO.
