NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah mentioned nine-time Pro Bowler Julius Peppers when describing Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett's playing style.
"You look at Von Miller, he bends different than anybody else in the NFL, so you can't really compare him there. Khalil Mack is a little bit shorter, a little bit more compact, and more of a power-based rusher. (Garrett) kind of combines the two worlds," Jeremiah said. "He can win with speed on the outside, but he also has that power to run right through a tackle. He's got a very unique skill set (that) reminds me a little bit of Julius Peppers. ... Peppers is a little bit heavier, but (has) a similar way of playing the game." Jeremiah expects Garrett to dominate the upcoming NFL Combine. The 6-foot-5, 262-pounder has reportedly run the 40 in under 4.5 seconds. Feb 17 - 2:14 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said that he expects Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett to "torch the [C]ombine."

Speaking on the NFL Network's Up to the Minute Live, Jeremiah was over the moon for Garrett's potential at the NFL Scouting Combine. "When you talk to the folks at Texas A&M, they tell you he is going to test like a freak," the analyst said. "Now we're going to get a chance to see him get out there, go through all these drills, put the watch on him, see how high he jumps, all those things." Garrett could potentially post insane testing numbers such as a 40-yard dash time around 4.50 seconds and a vertical leap in the vicinity of 40 inches. He is the front-runner to be drafted first overall by the Browns at this juncture of the process.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett indicated that his comment about wanting the Cowboys to trade up to pick him No. 1 was meant as a joke.

On Friday, Garrett said, "Take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, give 'em to Cleveland so [the Cowboys] can pick me up." The internet -- as the internet tends to do -- took that comment and ran with it. Garrett actually recorded the statement back in December. The producer of that ESPN video explained, "He was definitely having fun and was in a playful mood. One of the questions right before that was about his interest in dinosaurs. That’s what we do. We get fun little nuggets." Or as Garrett put it, "Take a joke, people."

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett said that the Dallas Cowboys should trade up to No. 1 in order to draft him.

"Dak Prescott is leading our team right now," Garrett said of his favorite NFL squad. "Take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, give 'em to Cleveland so you can pick me up." While it would be a surprise if Dallas kept Romo on the roster, the above scenario probably isn't a realistic one. When asked which team was his favorite draft landing spot outside of the Cowboys, Garrett pointed to the Browns, saying, "They have the No. 1 pick, I want to be seen as the best." He may well get that particular wish come this spring's draft.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett plans to watch the NFL Draft at home in Arlington, Texas.

NFL Media draft analyst Bucky Brooks tagged Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett as the prospect in the 2017 draft class who will make the biggest initial impact.

Brooks calls Garrett "one of the best pure pass-rushers to enter the league in the last decade." You'll hear plenty of this type of praise over the coming months for Garrett, who is a true contender to be drafted first overall in the spring. Brooks notes that the former Texas A&M star offers "explosive quickness, balance and body control."
Feb 7 - 7:22 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Bucky Brooks tagged Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett's decision to declare for the draft as a strong one.

In other news, water is wet. Garrett is a strong candidate to be drafted first overall by the Cleveland Browns come this spring's draft and had little incentive to stay in school for another season. "Despite dealing with nagging injuries during his final season at Texas A&M, Garrett consistently dominated the game at the line of scrimmage against the run and pass," Brooks wrote. "Most importantly, he looked like the best player on the field whenever he squared off against an elite competitor on the edge." The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder is an out-and-out defensive terror, having recorded a stellar 47 tackles for loss and 31 sacks during his collegiate career.

CBS Sports' draft analyst kept Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett atop his Big Board despite a sub-par bowl performance.

No surprise there. While Garrett made just one tackle in a Texas Bowl loss to Kansas State, that has no effect whatsoever on his immense talent. Wrote Rang, "Garrett remains the top NFL-eligible prospect in the country -- he has a prototypical blend of explosiveness, flexibility and length off the corner and the look of a future Pro Bowl regular." The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder declared for the draft at the end of December and could well find himself encased in a Cleveland Browns jersey as the No. 1 overall pick when the draft proper commences this spring.

The Cleveland Browns will have the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Browns will also have the No. 12 pick thanks to their trade with the Eagles prior to the 2016 NFL Draft. The rest of the top five includes the 49ers, Bears, Jaguars and Titans via the Rams.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

As expected. Garrett struggled with injury at times this season and wasn't quite able to make good on lofty statistical expectations, but the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder is a true defensive terror and could potentially land as high as the first overall pick in the spring draft. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein has referred to him as "one of the most explosive, physical specimens in the college game," while ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that the Browns have given Garrett an "astronomical grade."

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein wrote that he "couldn't help but think of Julius Peppers' body type when he was coming out of North Carolina" as he watched Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett in the Texas Bowl.

There is no denying that Garrett has the build of a potentially dominant next-level pass-rusher, but Zierlein has been somewhat underwhelmed by Garrett's tape this season. He floated the belief that the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder might be playing to avoid complicating a nagging ankle injury. "If he had been playing cautiously, it would account for a downturn in the quality of his tape," Zierlein wrote. "After all, we are talking about one of the most explosive, physical specimens in the college game." Even with questions about his tape this season, Garrett remains a legitimate contender to be drafted with the first overall pick come the spring draft.

Twelve of Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett's 32.5 sacks were tallied against SEC opponents.

The percentage of in conference sacks is noteworthy compared to other pass rushers in this class, as Garrett recorded 16 sacks against Lamar, Rice, Louisiana-Monroe, Nevada and UTSA. However, this does not really concern us. To compare to a draft storyline from a few years ago, many worried about Odell Beckham's lack of touchdowns versus SEC competition.

The Browns will earn the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft with a loss to the Steelers in week 17.

If the Browns beat the Steelers, which is possible since Pittsburgh could rest a number of starters, the 49ers could lock in the No. 1 pick with a loss of their own. Both teams are bad, but with a number of teams on the bench, the Steelers could be led by Landry Jones. The 49ers are facing the Seattle Seahawks, with no reason to rest players. In a sick twist of fate, the Browns could end the season on a winning streak.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett confirmed that he plans on playing in the Texas Bowl.

Under normal circumstances, this wouldn't be at all noteworthy. However, earlier on Monday, Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey joined LSU RB Leonard Fournette in announcing that he would not take part in bowl action, instead opting to begin prepping for the draft. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Garrett has fought through ankle concerns this season and as the potential No. 1 overall pick in the spring draft, he could easily have simply bowed out ahead of the Aggies' December 27 bowl showdown with Kansas State. No such plans for Garrett, though, who went so far as to put out a statement via the university which read simply, "I plan to practice today and prepare to play in the bowl game with my teammates."
