It ain’t Ja’Marr Chase, Trevor Lawrence or Kyle Pitts … no, the best rookie in the NFL at this point is Dallas Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons — so says Michael Irvin.
The Playmaker made the claim to TMZ Sports out in NYC on Monday — just one day after Parsons terrorized the Chargers in Dallas’ 20-17 win.
“Baddest boy out there, Micah Parsons!” Irvin said. “Bad boy. God Almighty, that man a bad boy!”
“Right now he is [the NFL’s best rookie]!”
Of course, it ain’t exactly a hot take … Parsons — the #12 pick in April’s NFL draft — has nine total tackles, 1 sack and 1 pass breakup in the first two games of the season so far.
He’s also played both defensive end AND linebacker … leading some experts to call the ex-Penn State star the Cowboys’ best defensive player.
Fifteen more games left in the season … Defensive Rookie of the Year hardware on the way after that?
