The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you needs to know, including Myles Garrett thinking he could excel as a two-sport athlete.

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been known to be a stupendous athlete, which has helped him excel as an elite pass rusher in the NFL. Garrett's athleticism was arguably his biggest strength during his college career.

During the 2017 NFL Draft process when the Cleveland Browns had the No. 1 overall pick, Garrett's athleticism helped him stand out from the rest of the draft class. He had all of the physical tools that would help him make the rapid adjustment to playing in the NFL.

Garrett's athleticism allowed him to be a solid two-sport athlete, as Garrett has showed off his talent on the basketball court several times. And Garrett believes that he could still be a dominant basketball player if he were to switch sports.

In today's featured article, Garrett said that he could play for the Cleveland Cavaliers and average 15 points and eight rebounds right away.

It is quite the claim for someone who makes a living rushing the passer instead of working on the pick-and-roll, but Garrett has turned heads with his basketball skill in the past.

Video of him throwing down a monster dunk in a pick-up game as well of a picture of the aftermath of one of his dunks breaking a backboard have made the rounds on social media:

Due to his athleticism for a man his size, Garrett has the skills to become a solid basketball player. But switching over to the NBA and excelling right away would be near impossible for a lot of people. Luckily for Garrett and the Browns, Garrett is one of the most talented defensive ends in the NFL and he can at least be dominant for one professional team in Cleveland.
