Browns sign Texas A&M's Myles Garrett, 1st overall pick

Cleveland Browns No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett agree to contract

Cleveland Browns No. 1 draft pick Myles Garrett agree to contract

The Browns top pick received advice from the NFL's all-time sack leader Bruce Smith prior to the draft, and said that he's "got to soak in all that information and all that greatness", if he wants to get to that level.

At 6 foot 4 and 272 pounds, Garrett comes from an extremely athletic family. The Browns meet the Steelers in Cleveland in the first game of the 2017 season.

Brantley had 20 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles while making 22 starts at the University of Florida and his play led many to predict that he'd come off the board in the first couple of rounds this year.

"I think that was kind of blown up, but I stand by it", Garrett told the Associated Press. Why should I be afraid of saying those kinds of things?

The Browns have signed six of their 10 draft picks.

In addition to Garrett, the Browns have signed contracts with defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi (third round), defensive back Howard Wilson (fourth round) and offensive lineman Rod Johnson (fifth round), as well as kicker Zane Gonzalez and running back Matthew Dayes, both of whom were seventh-round selections. "He is just trying to teach me the tricks that I can get off the ball faster and do it even better". But because Brown and Garrett play the same position and were drafted first overall by the same team, Brown will shadow Garrett like the Grim Reaper until Garrett proves he is worthy of the Browns' confidence. I haven't been around a lot of guys like him.
