Dallas Cowboys: If Micah Parsons Is 3/4ths Bobby Wagner… Greatness

Speaking of Seattle though, one of the reasons that Quinn was able to get done what he was able to in the Great Northwest, has to be Bobby Wagner. What they call sideline to sideline, Wagner is a rangy linebacker that is also a tackling machine.

Clocking a 4.46 40 yard dash coming into the NFL, it’s easy to see how the man can be everywhere. Though more highly touted coming out of college than Wagner was, for which his draft slot indicates, Micah Parsons has Bobby Wagner-type written all over him.

Running an ever swifter 4.36 coming into the league for his 40-yard dash, Parsons has the speed and instincts to be the next Bobby Wagner that Dan Quinn has the opportunity to help reach his full potential. If the numbers aren’t enough for you, hopefully, you’ve had a chance to check out the first installment of this season’s Hard Knocks on HBO, featuring our very own Dallas Cowboys.

If you haven’t, this may ruin a portion of it. In the episode and during the filming of the NFL Hall of Fame Game betwixt Dallas and Pittsburg, fellow linebacker (and a guy that may be in trouble with Parson’s talent, but another story for later), Leighton Vander Esch, spoke of how Parsons wants to make every play.

That says a ton about the guy in itself.
