Daily Dawg Tags: Myles Garrett will “punish” teams
The Cleveland Browns should not over-think the No. 1 selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. If they do, Myles Garrett will not be happy.
The Cleveland Browns are obviously not going to make their intentions known prior to the 2017 NFL Draft, but everything points to them selecting Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick.
Garrett has the potential to be the type of difference maker on defense that the Browns have not had since returning to the NFL in 1999.
The thought of using that selection on a quarterback may give the Browns pause before they turn in the card on April 27 in Philadelphia. But Garrett was interviewed for the April 24 issue of ESPN The Magazine and his comments should make that potential debate a short one:
"“Because I’ll be a difference maker from day one. 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.”"
Yeah, the choice seems to be a pretty easy one for the Browns.

How the Chargers started the colored face mask revolution (ESPN):
"The Detroit Lions will reveal their new uniform set on April 13, and some early reports indicate that the design may include chrome face masks. Chrome face masks aren’t new to the NFL. But it wasn’t always this way. For decades, face masks were a neutral tone, usually gray. The idea of treating the mask as a team-colored design element of an integrated uniform system didn’t come until 1974, when the Chargers unveiled a new uniform set that included something truly radical for its time: a yellow face mask."
