Evaluation: Micah Parsons, the No. 2 prospect in the 2017 class, was dominant whether he lined up at linebacker or defensive end during Sunday's The Opening Regional at the New York Jets' practice facility.
Parsons, who is 6-foot-3, 236 pounds, was agile and athletic as a linebacker. He was smooth and easy changing direction and his ability to cover 10 yards with his burst was amazing.
The Harrisburg (Pa.) High standout also moved to defensive end and when he jumped into the 1-on-1 reps, he dominated with his speed and power. He fires off the ball like a a tightly wound spring being released, and he does so with great balance and flexibility.
In being invited to The Opening Finals, Parsons also ran a few pass patterns with the tight ends and, predictably, showcased his tremendous athleticism.
