The 2020 NFL draft is barely in our rear-view mirror, but in an absence of real sports news let’s project to the 2021 talent bazaar, which will take place in Cleveland.
Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons won’t have far to travel for that event, assuming the nation is back to normal by then.
The 6-3, 244-pound athletic marvel’s testing numbers would be almost impossible to believe if they weren’t also reflected in his play.
According to Penn State, Parsons runs a 4.43-second 40-yard dash — which would put him in wide receiver or cornerback territory — and can bench presses 350 pounds.
His speed and strength should serve the consensus All-American well at the next level as a sideline-to-sideline defender.
