Myles Garrett Steady Improvement Continues With Cleveland
In 13 games of the 2018 season, the # 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, Myles Garret leads his team; the Browns with 12.5 sacks. He's currently 4th in the NFL in Sacks.
On January 16th of 2017 the Pro Football Writers Association of America (PFWAA) named DE Myles Garrett to the All-Pro Rookie Team. Garrett played well in the 11 games he played for the winless Browns.
He recorded 7 sacks which was an ample amount considering he missed the first four games with a high-ankle sprain and also didn't travel when the Browns played the Viking in London with concussion-like symptoms.
Cleveland signed their star prospect to a 4-year $30.4 million dollar deal. This includes a signing bonus of a reported $20 million.
To some degree thus far he's live-up to talk, hype and potential that went into him being listed by almost every NFL Analysts as clearly the best player in the draft. The Browns defense has noticeably improved every since he's been on the field.
Myles Garrett (6'5", 262 lbs) out of Texas A& M who many believe was hands-down the best player in the 2017 draft. He was projected to be a defensive playmaker and thus far he looks and plays like one.
Remember how Von Miller, also out of Texas A&M, led the way for Denver earning Peyton Manning his 2nd Super Bowl ring while earning himself a Super Bowl MVP. He's got that type of potential. For your fun, info and enjoyment, watch him with Von Miller on YouTube in Back to Campus.
Just like Joey Bosa has made a difference for the Chargers defensively, Garett is doing the same for the Browns this season. The Browns are currently 2nd in the NFL in takeaways with 25. They trail the Bears with 27, but the season isn't over and neither is Garrett finished recording sacks. He's becoming the defensive playmaker many expected him to be.
