Dallas Cowboys looking to get better on defense

Regarded as the best defensive player in the 2021 NFL draft class, Parsons is a major impact player. An elite pass rusher, Parson sheds opposition blockers with ease to sack QBs.

Cowboys fans knew that the side needed reinforcements on defense. And they couldn’t have gotten anyone better in this season’s draft.
