Myles Garrett runs a 4.64-second 40, unofficially

AP

We don’t know much about how the top of the draft will play out, but it looks like the first name called will belong to Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett.

Garrett unofficially ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 seconds on Sunday morning. Gil Brandt of NFL.com posted a hand-timed measurement of 4.52 seconds, and a scout sitting behind Brandt said, “We can all go home now.”

Previously in the Combine, Garrett  pumped out 33 reps on the 225-pound bench press.

While none of that means a guy will be a great football player, Garrett already was regarded as one of the top picks before the Scouting Combine. This is just the icing on the cake.

The Browns hold the first overall pick. Over the next two months, the main question likely will be whether they keep it and pick Garrett, or whether they trade it to a team that will.

  1. question is, will he be the piece to make Cleveland’s defense that much better or do they go for a player that will do the same on offense. If a guy has no impact regardless of talent,it’s best to just trade away for more picks.

  2. Jimmy Haslem is gonna watch Draft Day the night before. The morning of the draft he’s gonna start executing trades alà Sonny Weaver. Unfortunately, after he dumps both first round picks he will learn that GM’s aren’t as stupid as the movie portrays. He’ll then blame a hobo because billionaires spend a lot of time where homeless people hang out.

  3. Browns…1] Garrrett
    2] trade down a few from 12– davis webb
    3] trade up from 2nd rd a few.. mccaffrey
    4] OL 2nd round
    Free agents…CB…DL/LB…WR…OL…[QB?] [trade for QB?]

  4. There is no doubt in my mind whoever Cleveland takes or whatever move they make will be the wrong one in the long term. I’m sure people will be singing their praises after the draft, but one year from now, this draft class will be seen as a complete bust.

  5. PLEASE TRADE DOWN
    my cleveland browns this guy is not franchise player you said the same with COURTNEY BROWN MANY MOON AGO & LOOK WHAT HAPPENED

    If he goes to the Browns, he’ll wash out. If they trade the pick, he’ll end up a pro bowler. Browns luck right there.
    ===========================
    thats not luck. thats an organizational issue.

  7. If Cleveland refused to wise up and get Jimmy G, I wish them nothing but terrible fortune going forward.

    How dare you think you have the abilities to select good draft choices. You’re obviously terrible at evaluating talent, instead of annually wasting picks, go get the kid from NE who has already played (very well) in meaningful games! Look at the film, he was destroying the Dolphins before his shoulder injury…destroying.

    If I was a Browns fan and had to witness this year after year, it’d be hard to continue to support them when they refuse to help themselves.

    Trade the #1 for more lower picks and trade the #12 for Jimmy G. I swear to God, if they pass on JG and he proves to be a freaking monster, I will troll Browns fans on this website for the next 10 years in every single article about them!

  8. Also recorded a 41″ vertical, so it’s fair to say that Myles Garrett is a freak athlete to go along with being a very good football player.

  9. Non of this years QB’s have 1st round talent. 2nd round at best. Cleveland can mirror the Raiders and go with best player on board 1st round and QB in 2nd.

  10. Mrkbuilders, That ought to do it. If the Browns don’t trade for Jimmy G now after that threat, then nothing will work. Lol

  11. The Browns should probably trade the #1 pick for a bunch of picks. Garrett’s great workout numbers should increase his trade value, and anyway, he’s already made it clear to the Browns that, if they draft him, he’ll leave for Dallas as soon as his rookie contract runs out. So using the #1 pick on him would be a waste.

    Which means, of course, that they’re sure to draft him. They haven’t made a good choice in the draft since 2007 (Joe Thomas).

  12. I don’t know why anyone thinks that time is impressive. If he’s not clocking a 4.2 or a 4.3, he ain’t doing nothing.

  13. Wouldn’t give that 12th pick for jimmy g in a million years that pick is going to make malik hooker a brown book it. Garett and hooker is what cleveland needs
