Myles Garrett Selected No. 1 By The Cleveland Browns

Myles Garrett roared out of Texas A&M to become the  selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. Taken first overall by the Cleveland Browns, Garrett is prepared to come into the NFL and destroy every offense that stands in his way.

Though he has faced criticism from the likes of Hall-of Fame defensive tackle Warren Sapp, Garrett is ready to rumble.

An athletic freak of nature, Garrett notched 141 tackles and 31 sacks in three years of competitive play in the SEC.

The Browns are going to enjoy having such a versatile and explosive weapon coming off the edge that that owns a mean streak.

Forget what anyone is saying about his various interests outside of football, Myles Garrett is the real deal.

So much so that SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey told SEC Country that he admires the rising star’s versatility.

“Texas A&M defensive lineman Myles Garrett lives well beyond the game of football,” Sankey said. “He has an affinity like me for trying to read a book. His goal is one every two weeks. He writes poetry, which I do not. He left Twitter, which I did not, though I thought about it over the last year. Refrained from social media because he said this, quote: Getting better as a person, football player and leader is how I want to spend my time, end of quote.”

The Pound has a new lead dog.
