2017 #1 pick Myles Garrett rookie season ends on a high note with 7 sacks in 11 games on a winless Browns team
On January 16th the Pro Football Writers Association of America (PFWAA) named Browns #1 overall pick 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.
In Game 15 of the season vs. the Bears in Chicago, Garett showed his athleticism by returning an interception 40+ yards for a TD. Unfortunately, a penalty nullified his defensive score.
In the 2017 NFL draft, the Browns selected DE Myles Garrett out of Texas A&M with the #1 overall pick.
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. They are much improved against the run. It's their secondary that has been torched often contributing to them being 0-10.
#1 DE Myles Garrett (6'5", 262 lbs) out of Texas A& M who many believe was hands-down the best player in the draft. He's projected to be a defensive playmaker. He was needed almost as much as Cleveland need a long-term starting QB.
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.
Garrett needs to be even more impactful to help Cleveland actually win a few games in 2018 just like how Joey Bosa has made a difference for the Chargers defensively. Will Garett do the same for the Browns next season? We will see.
