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. Jan 17 - 2:13 PM

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.

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."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Browns have an "astronomical grade" on Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett.

While Garrett has yet to officially declare for the draft, he has indicated that his decision is going to be based in large part on whether he will be drafted in the top three. In the early going, at least, the Browns (0-12) look to be accommodating to the 6-foot-5, 260-pounder's wish. Schefter relays that Cleveland is "enamored" with Garrett. In a 2016 season marred by injury, the Aggies star has registered 32 tackles (15.0 for loss), 8.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett said that he will not make a decision on the 2017 NFL Draft until after the Texas Bowl.

Texas A&M will be tangoing with Kansas State in the Texas Bowl on December 28, after which Garrett will make his final decision. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound junior told ESPN that the deciding criteria, here, is heavily dependent on his potential landing spot in the draft, saying, "I want to go top three." In a 2016 campaign that has been marred somewhat by ankle woes (he missed three games), Garrett recorded 32 tackles (15.0 for loss), 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett will play only on third downs Saturday against Mississippi State.

This is his return to the field after Garrett missed last week's win over New Mexico State. He also missed the South Carolina game and limited versus Alabama.

Sat, Nov 5, 2016 12:52:00 PM's Lance Zierlein reminds readers that Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett was "clearly not in his best football shape Saturday against Alabama."

Garrett missed the game against South Carolina with a high ankle sprain, was mostly relegated to playing on third down the week after against Tennessee, and has been limited in practice over the past few weeks. "While he still showed off his signature burst upfield, he really didn't make many plays that weren't right in front of him," Zierlein wrote. "He relied on his opening burst and then, if nothing came from it, he was pretty much done. Clearly, his athletic gifts and incredible twitch will put him position to light it up at the next level, but he simply has to improve his hand work (his ability to keep blockers off of him with his hands)."

All five NFL personnel executives polled by say that Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett is the best prospect playing in the Alabama-Texas A&M game.

We agree. Here were a smattering of the quotes NFL Media generated in their quest. Exec 1: "Myles Garrett will always be the best player on the field. Doesn't matter who they play." Exec 2: "People use terms like 'can't-miss' or 'freak'. He's both of those things. He's a face of the franchise, cornerstone-type guy. There aren't many guys like this walking around on the planet." Exec 3: "Garrett is special. He gets double- and triple-teamed every down and he still makes wow plays." Garrett is set to battle Cam Robinson, Alabama's stud junior left tackle, on Saturday.

Texas A&M junior edge rusher Myles Garrett (ankle) said that he is "good enough [health-wise] to play well."

In a win over Tennessee two Saturdays ago, Garrett was mostly limited to playing on third down. He believes that his health has progressed enough that he should be able to take on a larger set of responsibilities against Alabama. The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder has had the benefit of a bye week to recuperate between the Tennessee and Alabama contests. Garrett is one of the best players in the country, but his ankle injury has limited him to 14 tackles (6.0 for loss) and four sacks in five games.
