The Dallas Cowboys are clearly happy after landing star Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons with the No. 12 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Parsons was considered one of the top defensive prospects in the draft and had top-10 potential before landing in Dallas' lap.
The fact that he's a Cowboys fan makes the pick even sweeter.

And we now know what jersey number Parsons will rock as a rookie.

The new Cowboys linebacker will wear No. 11 for Dallas. It's the number he starred in for Penn State, and it's even in his Twitter username, so there was no reason to switch it up now.
Parsons opting out of the 2020 college football season had little impact on his NFL Draft stock. He proved he was a top prospect by racking up 14.0 tackles for loss, 5.0 sacks, 5 passes defensed and 4 forced fumbles for the Nittany Lions in 2019.
Parsons' arrival is part of a defensive overhaul for the Cowboys this offseason, which included firing Mike Nolan after just one season and hiring Dan Quinn to replace him. An improved Dallas defense in 2021 could immediately vault them back into playoff contention.
