The Cleveland Browns are expected to draft Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall, so let’s take a look at why Garrett has received so much hype.
There are countless questions surrounding the Cleveland Browns as the team enters the second year of a rebuilding process, but there seems to be one evident truth. And that is the presence of Myles Garrett on the team in 2017.
The Browns haven’t openly announced the intention to take Garrett at No. 1 overall as of right now, nor should they, as they should see what offers come their way. But barring an insane, lopsided deal, Garrett seems to be heading to Cleveland in just over three weeks.
That leaves much of the focus of the continuing private workouts to be on the No. 12 overall pick, which is a spot where the Browns can go in countless different directions.
But Garrett seems to be set to begin looking at real estate in Cleveland, as the only mock drafts that don’t have him coming to Cleveland are those that are just out there to get cheap views.
He will come in and serve as an immediate upgrade for a defensive front that has been improved in the past two drafts. Along with Danny Shelton and Emmanuel Ogbah, Garrett will help the Browns go from being a horrible defense, to one that can consistently rank in the top half of the NFL.
Browns fans have been hearing a lot about Garrett all offseason, so let’s take a look at the player who is expected to be called with the first pick in the NFL Draft.
