Warren Sapp says Myles Garrett isn't worthy of No. 1 pick

Doyle BarkerApr 26, 2017

According to ESPN.com, Myles Garrett slipping past the Browns and 49ers would be a similar gift for Chicago that the Los Angeles Chargers received previous year when Joey Bosa fell to the No. 3 pick. Day 2 is likely to be the sweet spot in this deep class, making second-rounders worth as much as a late-first rounder to many teams.

"They have to take him at No. 1", Mayock said.

"To pass on the best player, not only the best player in the draft but the best player who is also at a premier position right behind quarterback and edge rusher, to push a quarterback all the way up the board would be a huge mistake", Jeremiah said.

Either way, the Browns have a gold mine in front of them if they make the correct decisions in the 2017 NFL Draft, because if there is a team that needs to be almost ideal with their early choices in this draft, it is the Browns.

In this scenario the Browns get the best player in the draft and a potential defensive standout, and they get a quarterback they hope can grow into "the guy". "You're going to get a good player, maybe a couple of them".

Garrett, the Arlington Martin and Texas A&M product, will have a new home hours before the Cowboys select Thursday. For an encore, he ran a 4.64 in the 40-yard dash, did 33 repetitions in the bench press and had a 41-inch vertical jump. Garrett's physical talents are apparent, and he put together one of the best NFL Combine workouts in recent memory, something Sapp believes has led teams to fall in love with the defensive end. They get the one they favor. Tennessee's Derek Barnett, Stanford's Solomon Thomas, Alabama's Jonathan Allen and even Michigan's Taco Charlton all could offer production that could rival Garrett. Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I've been saying for years that the National Football League would start to tarnish if they didn't adjust; it just isn't the golden goose it once was. Tyson Alualu was signed as a free agent to replace backup Ricardo Mathews.

But what if they could have their draft cake and eat it, too? Either way, the NFL Draft always finds a way to create some suspense along the way.

McShay also said Florida defensive tackle Caleb Brantley was charged with battery after a woman told police he had punched her, and both MI safety Jabrill Peppers and Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster tested positive for diluted urine samples at the combine.

"I think that sometimes those concerns are a little bit overstated", Berry said.
