Cleveland Browns EDGE Myles Garrett at No. 80 is laughable
With the season drawing ever so close, the NFL Top 100 list has begun listing its members. Myles Garrett, likely the only Cleveland Browns defender who will be on this list, finished ranked 80th in the top 100. Garrett finds himself sandwiched between D.K. Metcalf who ranks 81st and Calais Campbell who ranks 79th.
Myles fell a few spots after being ranked 48th last season, and understandably so. He only played in 10 games this past season, so it would be foolish to have him higher than he finished last season.
However, dropping him over 30 spots to finish behind Calais Campbell is comical.
Campbell is a great NFL player, but in only 10 games Myles Garrett posted better stats than he did. Myles had 3.5 more sacks and one tackle for loss more than Campbell despite playing in six fewer games.
Looking past stats, there most likely isn’t an offensive lineman in the league who would rather go up against Myles Garrett instead of Calais Campbell this past season. Campbell has had an incredible career, but at the age of 33, he was clearly slowing down last season, and you can see the results in his numbers.
Calais Campbell could find a resurgence of his stats as he is now a part of the insanely talented Ravens defense, though. He’s going to be put in a perfect position with a blend of talent on the field and in their coaching staff in Baltimore, but father time will likely increase his effects on Campbell.
Myles’ low ranking in this list makes him a clear target as the player who could make the largest jump next season. He was on pace to get 16 sacks, 29 quarterback hits, and around 18 tackles for loss.
With his talent and strength only increasing at this point in his career, Myles will likely post even better numbers in 2020 than what he was on track for in 2019.
