An NFL scout speaking with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel indicated that he'd take take Joey Bosa over Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett.

Hot take alert! "This guy is supposed to be the certain first pick in the draft but he leaves a lot to be desired," he said. "He’s a good athlete but there are stretches of him not being productive. He’s not really a tough guy. He’s not strong. He’s a flash player. Everything is solid off the field but I don’t think he plays hard." Not all scouts polled were as critical of the player who accrued 32.5 sacks over the past three years amidst consistent double-teams. "He’s a freak," said another scout. "This guy is bigger and longer than Von Miller (6-2½, 246). He’s the best player in the draft." A third scout said: "He will not let teammates down. He’s committed. He’s all in."

When asked by NFL Network's Michael Silver how Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett looked at the Combine on Sunday, an NFL executive responded "like a job saver."

The implication being that Garrett has the other-worldly talent to potentially save an NFL franchise (looking at you, Browns, looking at you). He showed off freakish athleticism in drills on Sunday, registering a mind-blowing 41-inch vertical leap at 6-foot-4, 272 pounds, rushing the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds (Gil Brandt had it at 4.52 seconds) and rolling up a broad jump of 10-foot-8. Job saver, indeed.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett turned in a vertical leap of 41 inches at the NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday.

We expected the 6-foot-4, 272-pound Garrett to crush the testing in Indianapolis. That is exactly what is happening on Sunday. In addition to that 41-inch vertical jump, he also logged a 4.64-second 40-yard dash, one that's Gil Brandt clocked at an even faster 4.52 seconds. Plus a 10-foot-8 broad jump just for good measure. Garrett is the heavy favorite to be drafted first overall by the Browns. He has been called a generational talent.

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.

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.

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.
