Myles Garrett: I’d Punish Browns For ‘Next 10-12 Years’ If Not Picked No. 1
The vast majority of mock drafts have the Cleveland Browns taking Myles Garrett at the No. 1 spot.
The Texas A&M pass-rusher is considered the best player in the draft and Garrett recently explained to ESPN why he should indeed go #1 overall in the draft.
“Because I’ll be a difference-maker from Day 1,” Garrett said. “And I’m not gonna be in any trouble. I’m just gonna make plays and bring a good atmosphere to your organization. And I’m gonna start winning and winning now. And because if you don’t draft me No. 1, I will punish your team for the next 10 to 12 years. I’ll knock your QB out of the game every time we play you, and I’ll have to kick the hell out of No. 1, whoever it is.”
Just two months ago, Garrett expressed his desire to play for the Dallas Cowboys just so he wouldn’t get picked by the Browns.
“I’m speaking to you, Jerry,” Garrett said. “Mr. [Jason] Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescottleads our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, and give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up. Please, I’d love to play in Dallas, just make it happen.”
Looks like he’s changed his mind since then.
