In his second season with the Cleveland Browns, defensive end Myles Garrett blossomed into the force of nature we all believed he could be. His efforts have been rewarded, as he has been named to the PFWA’s All-AFC Team.
The Cleveland Browns walked into the 2017 NFL Draft with the No. 1 pick, and walked out with Texas A&M product Myles Garrett.
Needless to say, they nailed the pick, with Garrett becoming one of the league’s premier pass-rushers rather early in his career.
Following a sophomore campaign that includes 13.5 sacks and three forced fumbles, the Browns defensive end has been named to the Pro Football Writers Association’s All-AFC team.
Garrett has already been named to his first Pro Bowl this season, along with Browns rookie cornerback Denzel Ward. In addition, Garrett was given the honor of being a second-team All Pro defensive end this season. This will just pile on the awards for 2018, as the Browns go into the offseason.
In addition to being one of the league’s most humble, likable players, Garrett’s freak athleticism has made the Browns’ defensive line one of the strengths of the team.
Pairing him up with a revamped secondary in 2018 only proved to heighten the talent of the entire defense. It seems more than likely that the Browns will try to find another defensive end to put opposite Garrett in 2019.
Myles Garrett has been everything the Browns could want and more through two seasons, and he will certainly be getting a monster contract when the time comes.
His ability has not gone unnoticed, and it’s likely that this is just the first of many truly phenomenal seasons that Garrett will put on during his career.
