“Cleveland Get The Money”

Myles Garrett was a sought out prospect even before attending college. When he arrived in College Station, Texas to play for the Texas A&M Aggies, he was the second overall prospect in the country. After three years, he decided to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. There, he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the first overall pick. Myles was the highest draft pick ever out of Texas A&M. As expected, the Browns picked up his option. Now, the franchise has extended him to a long-term deal. Five years, $125 Million to keep him in Cleveland for the foreseeable future.

This guy is a freak of nature on the field. He’s been blessed with the ability to bend his way around blockers. So many defensive linemen use different techniques to get by guys. This is a defensive end that gives it all on every play. When you think he’s been pushed away, here comes number 95 back into the fold to make the play. The pass-rushing is what caught my eye when I first saw him play. He’s just as effective at stopping the run which you don’t see much of from a defensive end. Most times, the defensive tackles are responsible for bringing down the running backs. Myles doesn’t mind setting that edge to shut down the run. He times the snap perfectly. Myles gets off the ball with his first step quicker than offensive tackles can get out their stances.

He was the talk of the news last year after the incident with Mason Rudolph. I hope he’s learned from that. Since entering the league, he’s ranked fourth in sacks per game (0.82). This deal would make him the highest-paid defensive player in the league surpassing Khalil Mack.
