In a video released by the NFL late Wednesday afternoon, Parsons was consumed by emotions as the team called to inform him that they’d drafted him.

Give it a watch below.

I love everything about this video. Not only was Parsons juiced to be a member of the Cowboys, but his entire family was amped up for him.

They couldn’t have been more excited for the former PSU star.

There are so many emotions on draft night. It really can be a rollercoaster. As players jump up the board, they’re flying high. If they drop, they can start to feel the lowest of lows.

Parsons going 12th was within the range people expected, and he’s now landing with the most recognizable franchise in sports in America.

I don’t blame him and his family at all for being consumed by their emotions. It was one hell of a special night!
