05/24/17 - DE Myles Garrett, the first pick of the draft four weeks ago, missed OTAs Wednesday with an undisclosed injury. He was on the sideline the entire time. Coach Hue Jackson said the move was precautionary. "He'll be fine," Jackson said. Obviously, I'm just going to be very cautious with guys. You guys know how I have been anytime guys have a little soreness that way. I want to make sure we're totally healthy. When we had the rookie minicamp, there was a little soreness. I just wanted to make sure that was out before we stuck him out there again." Garrett said he will be back on the field next week.
05/19/17 - DE Myles Garrett, the top overall pick of the 2017 draft, signed his four-year rookie contract with the Cleveland Browns on Friday. The deal is worth an estimated $30.4 million with a $20.25 million signing bonus. The contract comes with a team option for the fifth season in 2021. Garrett collected 141 tackles (47 for loss), 31 sacks and forced seven fumbles during his three-year career at Texas A&M. The 6-foot-4 1/2, 272-pound Aggies standout was held to 8 1/2 sacks last season while he dealt with a high-ankle sprain.
05/12/17 - DE Myles Garrett, the first pick in the draft, stirred the pot on draft night when he said he plans make Ben Roethlisberger his first sack victim in the NFL. "I think that was kind of blown up, but I stand by it," Garrett said Friday after the first day of rookie minicamp. "We're looking to get after it. Why should I be afraid of saying those kinds of things? That's what any team would say or any player would say."
04/27/17 - Browns take DL Garrett with top pick...Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett was the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft on Thursday, giving the Cleveland Browns an anchor on defense while not addressing the long-standing vacancy for a franchise quarterback. Cleveland selected Garrett with the first of 11 picks the Browns held entering the draft, a bounty bolstered in part by dealing the No. 2 pick in the 2016 draft to the Philadelphia Eagles. For only the sixth time since the Browns returned to the NFL in 1999, the No. 1 pick was not a quarterback. At 6-foot-4, 272 pounds, Garrett had a 4.64 40-yard dash (1.57 in the first 10 yards), a 41-inch vertical and 10-7 broad jump. The defensive end has been the presumptive No. 1 pick for months, even with the Browns leading a gaggle of teams in the top 10 with uncertainty at quarterback.
Garrett bears some physical similarities to 2014 No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, the South Carolina All-American who has been dogged by minor injuries with the Houston Texans. "We spent a lot of time with him," Browns vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said. "We learned a lot about what makes him tick, what motivates him, how he spends his downtime, how he spends his time with his teammates. He's an enjoyable young man ... bright, competitive. Whatever team gets him, particularly if it's us, would be proud to have him." - The Sports Xchange
03/07/17 - NFL Combine Cliffhangers: Did Myles Garrett lock up No. 1? Absolutely. Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett has been the favorite to go No. 1 overall since the summer and the chances of that happening have only increased since. And at the 2017 combine, Garrett erased any doubt that he is worthy of the top choice. At 6-foot-4 and 272 pounds, Garrett posted a 4.64 40-yard dash, a 1.63 10-yard split, a 41-inch vertical, a 10-feet-8 broad jump and ripped off 33 reps on the bench press. Could the Browns fall in love with a quarterback between now and April 27? Anything is possible. But this is the easiest decision for a team with the No. 1 overall pick since Andrew Luck in 2012. There will be plenty of brown and white Garrett jerseys in the stands of FirstEnergy Stadium next year. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
