Browns signed No. 1 overall pick DE Myles Garrett to a four-year, $30.4 million contract.
The deal is fully guaranteed and comes with a standard fifth-year team option. It also includes a $20.25 million signing bonus. The surefire top player in this year's draft, the Browns made an easy call by taking Garrett No. 1 despite heavy rumors they were considering Mitchell Trubisky. Garrett is a game-wrecker off the edge, and new DC Gregg Williams has developed defensive linemen really well. May 19 - 12:18 PM

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

Sanity prevails as Cleveland selects the best player in the draft rather than reaching for one of this year's low-probability quarterback projects. 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 be a long-term difference maker for the Browns at one of the highest-value positions in the sport.

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

Even the Browns can't screw this one up. Cabot's report comes via "multiple league sources." While the smoke around Mitchell Trubisky possibly leaping Garrett and becoming the Browns' preferred choice at No. 1 has been heavy, Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 in order to come away with both Garrett and Trubisky on Thursday.
Apr 27 - 4:31 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett "is still the likely pick for the Browns at No. 1."

Cabot says the Browns are still attempting "to trade up into the top eight," suggesting they will take Garrett at No. 1 and hope to land UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky later in the draft. ESPN's Jeff Darlington adds the 49ers, who pick behind Cleveland, are "skeptical about Trubisky going to the Browns." With the draft finally here, we will know for sure soon enough.

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said, "I haven't talked to one personnel guy that has an issue with Myles Garrett and his effort."

This topic has gotten recent media attention, likely in a plot from a team trying to somehow scare the Browns off Garrett at No. 1 overall. Ex-NFL Network "talent" Warren Sapp added fuel to it by calling out Garrett for being "lazy". ESPN's Todd McShay ripped Sapp's evaluation on Tuesday, and some have questioned if Sapp has ever even seen Garrett play a snap. We doubt it.
Apr 25 - 10:58 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 12:39 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 12:32 PM

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.
Apr 14 - 11:42 AM

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.

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.
