Myles Garrett was a beast in his three years at Texas A&M, registering 31 sacks during his career with the Aggies.
NFL scouts have obviously taken notice as he is projected by many to be the #1 pick in next week’s NFL Draft, giving the Browns a potential dominant defensive lineman and a cornerstone to rebuild their defense around under second year coach Hue Jackson.
In an interview with ESPN The Magazine, Garrett discussed many things including the superhero he prefers to be compared to (“Flash”), why he should be the first pick taken in the draft and how he went Sprewell on LSU tight ends last season. Yes, Garrett choked out not one, but two LSU players in one game.
ESPN: What’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done?
Garrett: Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row.
ESPN: That’s pretty mean.
Garrett: [Laughs] He had it coming. He just kept holding me, so I picked him up, put him on his back and then I grabbed his face mask and kept jamming his helmet into the ground. I said, “I’m setting you straight right now. Don’t do illegal holds.”
What happened to the two tight ends we mentioned? Well according to College Football Talk, website NOLA.com went to the video tape and discovered that the poetry and old school R&B loving Myles Garrett did, in fact, choke out two LSU tight ends in a game on ESPN- DeSean Smith and Foster Moreau.
A potential number one pick with intelligence, an old soul and aggression. Sounds like a player to us.
