11-of-16 NFL scouts polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel voted Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett the 2017 draft's top player.
LSU S Jamal Adams (2), Alabama LB Reuben Foster (1), Stanford DL Solomon Thomas (1), and Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon (1) split the remaining votes. When the scouts voted on the top pass rusher in the draft, Garrett again led the way with 12-of-16 mentions, while Alabama OLB Tim Williams drew two and aforementioned Thomas got the final two. We continue to not buy pre-draft reports that the Browns are considering taking Mitchell Trubisky over Garrett at No. 1 overall. Apr 23 - 5:39 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "continues to hear" that coach Hue Jackson and his staff is "all in" on Myles Garrett at No. 1, but the front office and owner Jimmy Haslam is leaning more toward Mitchell Trubisky.

The "owner badly wants a QB," according to La Canfora. Haslam was said to be the one who banged the table for Johnny Manziel a couple years back, and that obviously backfired terribly. Maybe Haslam should consider refraining from meddling in personnel decisions and try and let his staff turn around this franchise. However, it sounds like the front office is also in his corner on this one, wanting a potential franchise passer. Garrett is a legitimate game-changer, and the "football guys," as in the coaching staff, know it. EVP Sashi Brown spoke earlier this week and hinted the pick will either be Garrett or Trubisky.

Browns EVP Sashi Brown said Cleveland won't announce the No. 1 pick ahead of draft night.

"We feel good about who we're going to pick there," Brown said as he fielded questions at a Wednesday media session. He mostly talked about Texas A&M Myles Garrett and UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky, while also flat-out denying there is any friction or in-house split among the Browns' executives regarding the top pick. Our money is still on Garrett being the choice.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot, coach Hue Jackson favors using the No. 1 overall pick on Texas A&M DE/OLB Myles Garrett.

This comes on the heels of a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that stated the Browns' higher-ups are "split" on who to take with the top pick, mentioning Garrett and UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky. Jackson wants a "game-changer" at No. 1, and Garrett might be the only true one in this draft. This would suggest the analytically-driven Browns front office is having thoughts about picking a quarterback at No. 1. At the end of the day, we expect Garrett to be the selection.

Presumptive No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett will not attend the draft in person.

Garrett is opting for a party at his church. Among the players who will be in Philadelphia are quarterbacks Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson and DeShone Kizer. A complete list of players attending can be found at the link below.
Apr 13 - 6:25 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cleveland "has not made up its mind" with the No. 1 overall pick, and some Browns executives like Myles Garrett while others prefer Mitchell Trubisky.

Additionally, Schefter had an NFL executive text him to "not be surprised" if Texas A&M's Garrett is not selected with the top pick. Garrett has been the overwhelming favorite to be the first player off the board to the Browns for months now, but Trubisky appears to be picking up steam. Cleveland obviously is desperate for a quarterback, but it would be hard to see them passing on Garrett.
Apr 11 - 9:36 PM

Browns coach Hue Jackson says the team has no interest in trading the No. 1 overall pick.

"No," coach Hue Jackson said. "I can tell you no on that one." The Browns appear to be zeroing in on Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett, a player they've reportedly assigned an "astronomical grade," and believe can be an "immediate franchise-changer." If Cleveland addresses quarterback on Day 1, it will be at No. 12, or after a trade up.
Mar 28 - 2:23 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer believes the Browns have "come to the conclusion" that Texas A&M DE/OLB Myles Garrett can be an "immediate franchise-changer."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported something similar in December. Reporter Mary Kay Cabot believes the Browns are "fairly confident" they can select Garrett at No. 1 overall and still land UNC QB Mitch Trubisky or Clemson's Deshaun Watson at No. 12. Garrett is definitely the odds-on favorite to be the draft's top pick.
Mar 20 - 2:41 PM

Texas A&M DE/OLB Myles Garrett clocked a 4.64 forty-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

He had a 1.63 ten-yard split, 41-inch vertical, 10-foot-8 broad jump, and performed 33 reps on the bench. Garrett did all of this at 6-foot-5 and 272 pounds with a pterodactyl-like 82 5/8-inch wingspan. He's cementing himself as the top prospect in this year's class. After the running backs mostly disappointed, Garrett answered with a monster Combine. He's a near-lock to be taken No. 1 overall by the Browns.
Mar 5 - 12:18 PM

Texas A&M DE/OLB Myles Garrett measured 6-foot-4 1/2, 272 pounds at Friday's Combine weigh-in.

That's ten pounds heavier than Garrett's college-bio listing. Garrett has an 82 5/8-inch wingspan, vine-like 35 1/4-inch arms, and big hands (10 1/4"). While the Browns have indicated they're open for business at the No. 1 overall pick, Garrett is the heavy favorite to be Cleveland's selection if they stay put.
Mar 3 - 11:49 AM

Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett said he wouldn't ask for a trade if the Browns drafted him with the first overall pick.

Garrett said Friday on ESPN that he hoped the Cowboys would trade up for him, but he's already changed his tune. "I made a comment about cold weather and they kind of pointed toward Cleveland," said Garrett. "That doesn’t matter to me. I’ll play where ever they put me." A lot can change between now and April 27, but right now Garrett looks like the favorite to go No. 1. Josh Norris had him going to Cleveland first overall in his latest mock draft.
Feb 11 - 9:23 AM

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

As does everyone else in the draft, but the Browns will likely be in a position to do something about it with the No. 1 overall pick. Garrett is not an ideal fit in Cleveland, but they made it work this season with Emmanuel Ogbah and Carl Nassib. Garrett is a much better prospect than either of those players. The junior has yet to declare for the NFL Draft, but it would be a shock if he decided to return to College Station.
