Bradley Chubb would love to play with Myles Garrett but is the feeling mutual?

Bradley Chubb has never met Myles Garrett, but he would find it “cool” to play on the other side of last year’s No. 1 overall pick.

“He’s a great player,” Chubb said Wednesday at a pre-draft press conference at AT&T Stadium. “That whole team is, I feel like, on the uprise, so being part of that would be pretty cool as well. If I got a chance to play on the opposite side of him, it would be like you said, havoc.”

Browns coach Hue Jackson, whose team has the first and four picks Thursday night, said at the annual owners meetings last month that he has dreamed of Garrett and Chubb on the field together.

Chubb sounded more excited about the prospect than Garrett, who told NFL Network he would “go with one of those offensive guys.” Garrett added he had “no problem” if Cleveland ends up selecting Chubb or Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.

“He’s a great player, so I can see why,” Garrett said on NFL Network when asked about Jackson’s comment about Chubb. “At the end of the day, you’ve got to show it on the next level. I hope that he does. He performed well during the season, and he had a good combine. But I think more people need to go back and look at the tape of me and Emmanuel [Ogbah] when we got to be on the field together and how much havoc we caused for our short time together and how much we can do knowing that we will be together for the whole year and the damage we can cause.”

The Browns didn’t privately work out Chubb or fly him to Berea for a pre-draft visit. They did, however, interview him at the combine.

Chubb, who had 10 sacks each of his last two seasons at North Carolina State and averaged 22 tackles for a loss, doesn’t know where he will go Thursday night. No one else does either.

Chubb said he saw one mock draft that had him going 32nd overall.

“I feel like people have opinions and stuff and think this is going to happen and this is going to happen, but nobody really knows at the end of the day,” Chubb said. “So I feel like a lot of people are just saying stuff just to get clicks and stuff on their website, but nobody really knows what’s going to happen. So that’s why there’s so much uncertainty and so much confusion.”

  1. The first 4 picks will be QB’s. It is the most important position, there are not many years where there is more than 1 or 2 legit top 15 prospects for the position, teams get desperate and no team will pass up on a QB to pick an RB or DE or a guard, none. I do believe that Chubb is a 75% lock to go to the Browns at #5, the Broncos will swap with them to select a QB. In one draft, the Browns will get Darnold and Chubb. QB and getting to the QB wins you football games and Chubb, although not elite to getting to the QB, is definitely an all around, all down DE and will provide a young and dynamic 1-2 punch for the Browns on defense with Garrett.

  2. Garrett has a lot to say for a guy who’s played one year in the league….a seasoned veteran

  3. Translation: He has as much talent at me, but he’s gonna come in and go all out all the time and make me look bad.

    60% of a year

  5. Chubb will be a better pro than garrett. Garrett takes too many plays off, he is more of a part-time worker and in love with himself. Chubb is a real football player, maybe he could show Garrett how to give more effort.
