Micah Parsons has been a wrecking ball ever since he stepped foot on the field for the Dallas Cowboys. Parsons quickly emerged as one of the best edge rushers in the NFL due to his unbelievable raw talent and dedication to his craft.

After picking up a half-sack on Christmas Eve against the Miami Dolphins, Parsons joined Hall of Famer Reggie White as the only two players to record 13 sacks in each of their first three seasons.

The Penn State product keeps opposing offensive coordinators up at night as they try to scheme up a way to shut down the ascending stud. Parsons has the versatility to line up all across the defensive line to exploit mismatches. His speed and pass-rush moves jump off of the TV screen.

He is currently tied for eighth in the NFL in sacks (13). Additionally, Parsons is among the elite edge rushers early on in his career. The 24-year-old has recorded the sixth most sacks (39.5) by a player in their first three NFL seasons. In the finale against the Washington Commanders, he has a chance to jump into fifth place. That spot is presently held by Dwight Freeney (40).

In five career games against the Commanders, Parsons has notched 12 solo tackles and five sacks. Furthermore, he's supplied at least a half-sack in all five matchups.

Parsons' game continues to expand and grow as he plays more snaps in the league. Due to his unbelievable speed and violent hands, he can make life miserable for quarterbacks. The Pennsylvania native is just scratching the surface of his full potential.
