Rotoworld's Evan Silva assigned the Browns an "A-" grade for their draft.
The Browns went for upside throughout, following No. 1 overall pick Texas A&M Myles Garrett with fellow first-round picks Michigan S/KR Jabrill Peppers and Miami TE David Njoku. Cleveland took Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer in the middle of the second round. "When considering this draft also yielded [Jamie] Collins and Houston’s [2018] first-rounder, I’d have a very hard time quibbling with it in any respect," Silva wrote. CBS Sports' Pete Prisco gave Cleveland's class a perfect "A" grade, while ESPN's Mel Kiper graded it as a "B." Kiper's main quibble was that Cleveland bypassed the first-round QB prospects and took Kizer, a prospect he isn't high on. May 4 - 1:02 PM

Browns selected Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Garrett (6’5/272) arrived in College Station as a top-two high school recruit and spent his full three-year career as the Aggies’ best player, amassing 48.5 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. Garrett ruined SEC offensive schemes with a fierce bull rush, lightning-quick inside spin move, and incredible burst off the snap. He also received strong run-defense grades from PFF College. A complete edge defender with basketball-player athleticism, Garrett crushed the vertical (41"), broad jump (10’8"), bench (33), forty (4.64), and Wonderlic (31) at the Combine. After dominating college football at its highest level, Garrett should give the Browns a long-term difference maker at one of the highest-value positions.

The Browns will select Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Cabot cites "multiple league sources." Rumors have swirled over the past 24 hours that the Browns would audible off Garrett to take UNC's Mitch Trubisky at No. 1. Numerous plugged-in draft writers (Mel Kiper, Todd McShay and Bob McGinn, to name three) predicted just that in their final mock drafts. While it might appear that cooler heads have prevailed here, Cabot wrote that "some [in the Browns' brass] have known for a while that Garrett was the pick." The Browns are currently trying to trade back into the top-10, from No. 12, to acquire Trubisky. Between the No. 33 overall pick (the first in Round 2) and three second-round picks in 2018, Cleveland has plenty of trade ammunition.

The Browns have decided upon who they will take with the No. 1 selection, NFL Network's Michael Silver reports.

Browns general manager Sashi Brown told Silver that Cleveland settled on its choice two weeks ago and "only three or four people in the world" know who it is. We're not one of those people, but the football world will explode if it isn't Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett. Cleveland's next goal is reportedly to trade up to take North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky.

Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp doesn't believe Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is worthy of being the No. 1 pick.

"I don't see it from this kid," Sapp said. "I see the splash plays -- everybody gets those. Where's the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I'm a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears." Garrett is the odds-on favorite to go No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday night. "I don't think this kid is as good as Courtney Brown, either," Sapp said, evoking Cleveland's No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft. Sapp believes Garrett's evaluation is based on his measurables, not his game. "I see a lazy kid that makes four plays a game," Sapp said. "This is the No. 1 guy? No, no, no. This ain't even close." We disagree with the idea that Garrett didn't heavily influence every game he played in at Texas A&M. Garrett posted 31 sacks and 47 TFL over 34 collegiate games despite consistent double-teams.

The Browns have fielded calls for the No. 1 pick but don't intend to trade down.

"We have received calls," Cleveland GM Sashi Brown said. "We feel really good about picking at one." Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is all but locked into that top slot. Cleveland is also reportedly interested in Mitch Trubisky. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell reported Wednesday that the Browns have spoken to the Jets about the possibility of moving up from No. 12 to No. 6 to take a signal-caller.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett admitted to "choking out" an LSU tight end during a game on Thanksgiving night.

When asked what was the meanest thing he'd ever done, Garrett responded: "Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row." The interview responded "That’s pretty mean," to which Garrett laughed and said: "He had it coming. He just kept holding me, so I picked him up, put him on his back and then I grabbed his face mask and kept jamming his helmet into the ground. I said, 'I’m setting you straight right now. Don’t do illegal holds.'" NOLA.com investigated the tape and found that Garrett actually flattened two LSU tight ends, DeSean Smith and Foster Moreau.

Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports that Cleveland Browns HC Hue Jackson is "in the [Texas A&M edge rusher Myles] Garrett camp."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week that there was a "split" within the Browns regarding the No. 1 pick, with one faction on the team arguing for Garrett while the other faction favors UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. Looks like Jackson is on the side of the slam dunk pick in Garrett. While this little Garrett/Trubisky rumor has understandably caused draft insiders to bubble with the excitement of the unknown, we still feel strongly that Garrett will -- and should be -- the first player selected on April 27.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars this week.

Sitting at No. 4, Jacksonville has no realistic chance at actually drafting Garrett unless they opted to pay Cleveland a king's ransom for the No. 1 pick. And even then the Browns might say no and just rock/roll with Garrett as a foundational piece of the franchise. The 6-foot-4, 272-pounder is also set to visit with the 49ers (No. 2) and Bears (No. 3). We would be floored if Garrett went to anybody other than the Browns.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett said that he "[tries] to emulate [Denver Broncos DE Von Miller] on the field."

Speaking with Draftwire's Luke Easterling, Garrett said, "I like how he plays the game, how physical he is, how hard he works to make some plays and how he shows his athletic ability." The 6-foot-4, 272-pounder has been steaming toward the Browns and a No. 1 selection throughout the process. He will meet with the 49ers and Bears in the coming weeks, though they are probably going to be out of luck on the Garrett front unless Cleveland does something tricky at the pole position.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett said that he will meet with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears.

The 49ers and Bears hold the No. 2 and No. 3 picks, respectively. Garrett is also scheduled for an official meeting with the top draft dawg in the Browns. While San Francisco and Chicago are doing their due diligence on the 6-foot-4, 272-pound force of nature, it would either take a giant trade up or Cleveland shocking by passing on Garrett to put either team in realistic play to draft the Aggies star.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett was clocked at an unofficial 4.61 seconds in the 40-yard dash on pro day.

Garrett did not really need to run the 40-yard dash during pro day festivities, as he had already turned in an impressive 4.64 seconds in the event at the Combine. The 6-foot-4, 272-pounder felt he had to prove himself nonetheless, telling NFL Network's Mike Mayock, "I feel like I needed to prove myself in the 40. I felt like I could go faster if I had stretched out a little more, enhance what I did in Florida." Garrett is considered the prohibitive favorite to be drafted No. 1 overall by the Browns.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said his team will not trade the No. 1 pick of the draft.

"No, I can tell you no on that one," he said. Jackson made the comment in response to a question about the possibility of trading for New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo. If this isn't an indication that Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett has locked himself into the top overall slot, then we don't know what is. The Browns may use the No. 12 overall pick to go shopping for the quarterback they so desperately need.
Mar 28 - 2:42 PM

The Browns have conducted a private workout with Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett.

The Browns will also host Garrett for an official pre-Draft workout. The Plain Dealer of Cleveland reports that the Browns are "set to take him" No. 1 overall "unless one of the quarterbacks blows them away during the predraft process." Garrett capped a dominant career at Texas A&M by demolishing the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month. He's the heavy favorite to hear his name called first on April 27 in Philadelphia.

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."
