Former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett likely will be the first pick of the 2017 NFL draft. Should the Cleveland Browns call his name on that Thursday night, he’ll embrace the ones he loves and then eat.
“If my name’s called first … I’ll sit there, probably look at my two best friends, laugh, smile at my parents, give them a hug,” Garrett said. “Then I’ll go about eating my crawfish … and crab.”
Garrett impressed NFL teams again at the Aggies’ pro day on Thursday. He ran an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.61 seconds and leapt 10 feet, six inches in the broad jump.
The defensive end did not need to do any more tests after he had posted 4.64 seconds in the 40 and a 10-foot-8 broad jump at the NFL Scouting Combine.
“I’ve got to win,” Garrett told NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock. “Winning is just not enough. I have to do my best. So I have to build a new personal record, not just set a record for everybody else. It’s mine that counts. I can’t hold myself to any other standard.”
