While Belichick is right that a lot of Nittany Lions players were outstanding last season, Parsons wasn’t one because he didn’t play. He opted out of the 2020 season before it started in order to preserve himself for the draft.
Even though Parsons did that, it didn’t affect his draft stock that much as he was still picked in the 1st round. He’s been lights out through 5 games thus far as he already has 25 total tackles (17 solo) with 2.5 sacks and 2 passes defended.
His best individual game came against the New York Giants this past Sunday. He finished with 8 total tackles (6 solo) with 2 stuffs.
New England and Dallas will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday and it’ll be televised by CBS.
