'If it's Dallas, I'm gonna cry': Awesome behind-the-scenes look of Micah Parsons being selected by Cowboys
You could say Micah Parsons spoke his dream into existence.
After an outstanding career at Penn State, the linebacker was hopeful that he’d get a call in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. And he was also hoping that one organization would be on the other line when he answered the phone.
That’s how it played out.
On Thursday night, Parsons received the phone call from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who told the linebacker he was being selected with the No. 12 overall pick. The reaction from Parsons after his dream came true was priceless.
Below is the video of an awesome behind-the-scenes look at when Parsons received the phone call on Thursday night. The NFL provided the clip:
Micah Parsons kept on telling himself he wants to end up with the #Cowboys. He waited patiently in the green room… and then he got the call. Oh man, this is amazing.
