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 AFC North scout is concerned that Texas A&M OL Avery Gennesy might be too stiff athletically for the NFL.

"He's unique because he's athletic and has great feet, but his hips are stiff," the scout said. "He's not strong enough to play guard and his anchor could get quarterbacks hit too much." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Gennesy to Marshall Newhouse. "Foot quickness could make him a target of teams who ask more from their tackles in the run game, but his lack of bend could create consistent issues against bull-rushers," Zierlein wrote. "While teams could try him at guard, he will likely stay outside at tackle and compete as a swing tackle right away."

An AFC executive is concerned by the amount of tackles Texas A&M S Justin Evans misses.

"His interception against UCLA at the beginning of the year was one of those plays that not many safeties can make," the exec said. "But I'm worried about his missed tackles. Hard hits are great for Sportscenter or YouTube but getting guys to the ground is top priority." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Evans to another hard-hitter in Karl Joseph. "Soft-spoken but carries a walloping stick," Zierlein wrote. "He is a little undersized, but has plus speed, is an extremely physical hitter and can play deep or near the line of scrimmage." The analyst believes Evans is worth a Day 2 pick and adds that the safety has the ability to "become a plus NFL starter."

An SEC defensive coach said he and his coaching staff were impressed by Texas A&M G Jermaine Eluemunor.

"I didn't think too much about him before we played, but we were impressed with him," the coach said. "He's a really powerful guy and he moves way better than I expected. I thought he was going to be stiff but he's not." NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Eluemunor to Alvin Bailey. "Despite his weight, he is light on his feet and can handle zone blocking responsibilities or can pull for teams looking to utilize him in power," Zierlein wrote. "Eluemunor is still considered a developmental prospect, but his size and strength could make him an eventual starter in time." Eluemunor grew up in London, giving him a late start to football.

Matt Waldman of the RSP believes Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds deserves more attention.

Our own Josh Norris has been pushing the same, ranking Reynolds as a top 10 receiver in the class. Reynolds lived on the right side of the formation but dominated on vertical routes with his release, separation skills, sideline awareness and contested catch game. His game is quite linear right now, but he was able to show more at the Senior Bowl.

Texas A&M junior WR Christian Kirk ran the 100-meter dash in 11.04 seconds in high school.

Presumably, he's gotten faster. Kirk also boasts a reported vertical jump of more than 35 inches. He's the SEC's active leader in receptions of 20-plus yards with 29. Kirk also enters next season as one of the nation's best NFL receiving prospects.

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."

According to Bruce Feldman, some teams now view Texas A&M QB Trevor Knight as a possible WR or S prospect.

Knight tested in the 96th percentile among quarterbacks. Per MockDraftable, Trevor Knight has an 84.6% comparison score to Leonte Carroo and an 81.8% comparison score to Mel Mitchell, a safety. Knight will get limited looks in the NFL as a passer, so a position switch might be his best shot.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans told NFL Media reporter Kimberly Jones that Texas A&M WR Josh Reynolds is "a better route runner than I was coming out of college."

Evans adds that he believes that Reynolds also runs faster than him, but sees his own size and frame as superior to his Aggies brother. With the Combine in the books, we can compare the athletic results of both receivers easily enough. While Evans measured out at 6-foot-5, 231 pounds several years back, Reynolds checked into this year's events at 6-foot-3, 194 pounds. Both receivers were essentially identical in the 40-yard dash (4.52 seconds for Reynolds, 4.53 for Evans) and both hit vertical jumps of 37 inches right on the nose. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein writes that Reynolds' "toughness, work ethic and football intelligence should overcome [concerns over a lack of physicality against larger defenders] and help him carve out a career as a second or third receiver in the league."

Texas A&M S Justin Evans is dealing with a strained quad and will not run at the NFL Combine.

Evans might participate in position drills. Evans is one of the top rated safeties in this class, and his speed is obvious when he closes on ball carriers in the box. Evans went through Senior Bowl activities.

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.

Per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, Texas A&M S Justin Evans has a dozen interviews in store for Sunday.

Mr. Popular won't be going through drills until Monday, so he will spend his Sunday trying to make a good impression with NFL squads via this slew of interviews. Pauline hears that Evans is going to "blow up the combine" and could even challenge some of the all-world marks posted by UConn CB Byron Jones several years back.

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 NFL.com'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.

Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett ran a 4.64-second 40-yard dash on Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine.

That's the official NFL time. NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt had Garrett at 4.52 seconds. A scout sitting behind Brandt summed up everyone's thoughts by saying: "We can all go home now." Garrett checked into Indianapolis at 6-foot-4 1/2 and 272 pounds. For context, Detroit's Ziggy Ansah ran a 4.63 40-yard dash at a similar size.

Texas A&M WR Speedy Noil will not run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

So far as we know, there is no injury with Noil. He will presumably run the 40 at Texas A&M's pro day. The 5-foot-11, 199-pounder's decision is a somewhat peculiar one, as he had already turned in an explosive vertical leap of more than 40 inches.
