Myles Garrett will have a visit with the 49ers

The Browns insist they’re not trading the top pick for a quarterback. The world assumes that Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett will be the top pick, even though he’s not a quarterback.

But in case he’s not off the board, the 49ers are going to be ready.

Via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Garrett said he will visit with the 49ers, the owners of the No. 2 overall pick.

General manager John Lynch was on hand  for Garrett’s pro day workout in College Station, Texas, and seemed dutifully impressed that Garrett participated.

I thought it was impressive,” Lynch said. “Here’s this kid who really doesn’t need to show everyone much more, but yet he shows up and runs a 40. I think it just speaks to the kind of kid he is. It was impressive. It’s well-documented – I’m not saying anything ground-breaking – he’s a special athlete.

“He checks all the boxes. That’s why people are talking about him in the way they are.”

It would be a major surprise if Garrett was available when the 49ers were on the clock, but it would also be a mistake if they weren’t prepared, just in case.

  3. The Cleveland Browns should just follow the path the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers did. They took Lee Roy Selmon and he proved his high worth for Tampa for over 8 years and 6 PRO BOWLS. They don’t need to over think this pick.

  4. The Browns may trade their #1 overall pick to get more picks. One player is not going to help them. Number 1 overall pick is going to cost a lot of money to sign also.

    The Browns could trade that pick but it is unlikely. They are flush with picks and cash. Just as an FYI the #1 pick doesn’t make what they used to and the cost is pretty much fixed by slot. The numbers haven’t been posted anywhere I’ve seen yet but it probably won’t exceed $7M per year as a cap hit .
    IF for some reason Garrett doesn’t go at 1 it is the Niners who would be more likely to do what you suggest.
