Jadeveon Clowney. Mario Williams. Julius Peppers. All top-two draft picks. A Super Bowl-winning executive says Myles Garrett is better than all of them.
NFL.com’s Charley Casserly, the general manager of the Washington Redskins team that won Super Bowl XXVI, says Garrett is further along in his development than Clowney, Williams or Peppers at the same stage in their respective careers.

That’s saying something.
Peppers was selected with the second overall pick from North Carolina in 2002, and he’s entering the 16th year of his NFL career. With nine Pro Bowls, he will merit strong Hall of Fame consideration.
Williams, chosen first overall in 2016 from North Carolina State, made four Pro Bowls in an 11-year career.
And Clowney, the former South Carolina star, just entering his third season after joining the Houston Texans first overall in 2014, reached his first Pro Bowl last season after a terrific year.
Garrett is widely expected to follow both Williams and Clowney as the top overall pick, to the Cleveland Browns, although some suggestions have popped up in recent days that the Browns might look elsewhere.
