Former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett has received nothing but praise leading up to the NFL draft. After already projecting as the draft’s top prospect, Garrett enjoyed a stellar performance at the NFL Combine.

But one scout told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Garrett leaves “a lot to be desired.” The scout questioned Garrett’s toughness and strength, although he did credit his athletic ability.

“This guy is supposed to be the certain first pick in the draft but he leaves a lot to be desired,” the scout said. “He’s a good athlete but there are stretches of him not being productive. He’s not really a tough guy. He’s not strong. He’s a flash player. Everything is solid off the field but I don’t think he plays hard. I’d take (Joey) Bosa.”

Other scouts gave the Journal Sentinel much more favorable reviews of Garrett.

“This guy is bigger and longer than Von Miller (6-2½, 246),” one scout said. “He’s the best player in the draft.”

Said another scout, “He will not let teammates down. He’s committed. He’s all in.”
