Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett recorded two tackles for loss in Saturday's 23-2 loss to Ole Miss.
Garrett faced off against Laremy Tunsil on almost every snap, although he did stunt inside in some situations. Garrett played on 67 of 101 snaps in the highly publicized matchup. Garrett was able to draw a number of pressures thanks to his combination of explosion, power and bend. And in fairness, Tunsil played at a high level in his first game back from suspension.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett lines up nearly 100 percent of the time opposite left tackles on pass rushing snaps.

This means Garrett will face off against returning Ole Miss junior left tackle Laremy Tunsil on almost every snap. Tunsil is returning from a suspension handed down by the NCAA after an investigation into improper benefits. Tunsil is ranked by many as the top draft-eligible offensive lineman, and Garrett is a sensational sophomore. It could be the top one on one matchup of the season.
Oct 24 - 10:15 AM's Gil Brandt says NFL scouts can't wait to watch Ole Miss junior T Laremy Tunsil face off against Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett on Saturday.

Tunsil's return could not have come at a better time. The NFL Draft community is abuzz about the matchup between heralded prospects. "Laremy Tunsil vs. Myles Garrett is a matchup we could be watching for the next 15 years," Brandt's colleague Albert Breer tweeted. Tunsil better be in tip-top shape right out of the gate.

The Lott Trophy added five players to an updated watch list, including Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett.

All five -- Riley Bullough (LB, Michigan State), Deon Bush (DB, Miami), Jordan Jenkins (LB, Georgia) and Tyler Matakevich (LB, Temple) -- arguably should have been on the list in the first place, but here we are. Garrett leads the country in sacks (5.5) and Bullough is No. 2 in the nation with 39 tackles. Jenkins has 22 tackles, 6.5 TFL, three sacks and seven quarterback hurries while Matakevich has 29 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions.

ESPN's Mel Kiper wants to see how Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett defends the run this weekend against Arkansas.

We all know Garrett is difficult to contain off the edge, but how stout will he be in holding it against a mammoth Hogs' offensive line and a stable of strong runners? "While Garrett has been a terror as a pass-rusher for Texas A&M, I want to see how he mixes that ability to get into the backfield and make plays with a solid approach against the run, which is what Arkansas will want to do in a crucial game for the Razorbacks to keep their season afloat," Kiper wrote.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett recorded four tackles for loss, including 3.5 sacks, in the school's 44-27 win over Nevada.

Garrett was absolutely dominant, and the performance is even more impressive considering Garrett had his wisdom teeth removed just days before. It is difficult to argue against Garrett being the top edge rusher in college football. He wins with speed and converts it to power.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett had his wisdom teeth removed last Sunday but played at a high level in the school's 44-27 win over Nevada.

Head coach Kevin Sumlin disclosed the information after the game. If you have ever gone through the procedure, you know this is quite a feat. Garrett almost certainly missed practiced time because of the surgery and his nutrition was altered, too. We will post Garrett's production from the game later in the week.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett "presents size usually present in juniors or seniors," notes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

Garrett checks in at 6-foot-5, 255 pounds. Draft analyst Reuter wrote that "[his] true freshman campaign already puts him among the top pass rushers in college football." In that freshman season, he recorded 11.5 sacks and 14.5 TFL thanks to what Reuter refers to as a "natural bend." "[That bend] gives him a chance to get around any offensive tackle in a hurry." Garrett was named to the Freshman All-American team last season and HC Kevin Sumlin has compared him to a combination of Adrian Peterson (explosive ability), Jean-Claude Van Damme (flexibility and strength) and a cat (body contortion). This all equals out to one of the most promising defenders in the SEC.

Texas A&M DL coach Terry Price notes that sophomore DE Myles Garrett has obviously "gotten stronger" in the off season.

"Obviously, he's gotten stronger," Texas A&M defensive line coach Terry Price told "He's gotten healthier. He has done a better job at the point of attack. One of the biggest things we worked on this spring and this fall is hand placement ... and he’s worked hard at it, and he’s done a better job with his hands." The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Garrett earned consensus Freshman All-American honors last year, after posting 50 tackles, and 11.5 sacks.
Aug 24 - 3:25 PM

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin called sophomore DE Myles Garrett a blend of Adrian Peterson, Jean-Claude Van Damme and a cat.

Incredible. Let's break this down. Sumlin says Garrett has Peterson's explosion, Van Damme's flexibility and strength and a cat's body contortion. "We call him Batman," says Sumlin, "because his body looks like the costume." Garrett was one of the top SEC defenders last season in just his first year in college football. Expect the Texas A&M defense to take a step forward this season.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett "clearly has top-end talent, with explosive burst off the line that will make him one of the nation's best pass rushers," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The Aggies had plenty of problems on defense last year, but Garrett's instant impact as a freshman saved them from even more frustrations," Brown wrote. "He boosted a lackluster pass rush in a hurry, debuting with an SEC freshman record 11 ½ sacks and 53 tackles. Eight of those sacks did come against Lamar, Rice and Louisiana-Monroe, so there's plenty of room to grow against stiffer SEC competition." Brown pegs Garrett as the No. 5 defensive end in the land. The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder earned consensus Freshman All-American honors last year.

Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis has "simplified" the school's defensive scheme.

Senior defensive tackle Julien Obioha said it took him three weeks to learn the previous scheme and only three days to learn Chavis'. We are proponents of simplifying coaching on both sides of the ball at the college level, mastering and perfecting rather than over-complicating. Chavis was previously the defensive coordinator at Tennessee and Louisville.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett as his No.1 edge defenders to watch in College Football in 2015.

"Garrett might already be the best pure edge rusher in the country thanks to his upfield burst and destructive inside move. Garrett has cat-quick change of direction to keep him in more plays than the norm and he's surprisingly difficult to redirect once he starts to turn the corner in his pass rush," Zierlein wrote. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound Garrett posted 11.5 sacks, and was second among defensive linemen with 50 tackles in his freshman season. Garrett earned Consensus Freshman All-America, was a Freshman All-SEC selection, and brought home second-team All-SEC honors last season.

Texas A&M sophomore DE Myles Garrett will have to show that he can "hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams" that proved to be able to negate "his quickness with brute strength," according to's Chase Goodbread.

"The next step in Garrett's game will be to hold his own better against the power-rushing SEC teams (read: Alabama, LSU, Arkansas) that negated his quickness with brute strength. If Chavis develops that part of his game, Garrett's immediate future is limitless," Goodbread wrote. The Texas A & M prospect broke Jadeveon Clowney's league record for sacks as a freshman with 11.5. The 6-foot-5, 247-pound Garrett showed a ton of explosiveness off the ball last season, and was even clocked at mid-4.4s in the 40 this offseason.
May 19 - 2:26 PM

Texas A&M true freshman DE Myles Garrett is expected to play against LSU on Thanksgiving despite sitting out the game against Missouri with an unspecified injury.

Garrett is the school's bets defensive player in just his first season, breaking the SEC record in sacks for a freshman and producing plenty of disruption. He will face off against La'El Collins, one of the top tackle prospects in this class.
