Micah Parsons is a rookie, but he isn't playing like one–so much so that Dallas Cowboys veteran safety Jayron Kearse compared him to star linebackers Bobby Wagner and TJ Watt.

The Cowboys defensive end has been sensational for the team in his first year, catapulting himself into the conversation not only for Rookie of the Year but also for Defensive Player of the Year. That's just how great he has been.

Parsons has already accumulated 12 quarterback sacks, 75 tackles and 17 tackles for loss this season, putting him well in contention for the DPOY alongside TJ Watt, Aaron Donald and Myles Garrett. While it might be difficult, he has certainly made his case with the Cowboys garnering wins as well.

When discussing what makes Parsons truly elite, Kearse didn't hold back in his praise of the youngster. For him, the 22-year-old has that elite combination of skills rarely seen among players today.

“I’ve never seen a rookie perform how (Micah Parsons) has performed. … It’s just crazy that he can get off the ball and play just as good as a Bobby Wagner or he can get on the line and be just as good as a T.J. Watt. You don’t see that from a lot of people,” Kearse said, per Jon Machota of The Athletic.

Micah Parsons recently powered the Cowboys to victory in Week 14 against the Washington Football Team, registering two sacks and two quarterback hits. It was a performance that put the youngster at the top of the list of rising stars in the league.

While some would say Kearse is biased because they are teammates, it is not without merit. With the way Parsons is playing, the future certainly looks bright for him and Dallas.
