I've already publicly stated to friends and family that I will officially stop being a Browns fan if they pass over Garrett.

I'm serious. That would be the last straw.

Myles Garrett making the Browns' choice at No. 1 easy with stunning Combine workout
By Mary Kay Cabot, cleveland.com
on March 05, 2017 at 2:37 PM, updated March 05, 2017 at 3:37 PM

CLEVELAND, Ohio - Myles Garrett is making the Browns' decision easy with his stunning workout at the NFL Combine Sunday.

Sources said the Browns were blown away by Garrett's Combine, both the interview and his off-the-charts workout, and that they're close to making him their No. 1 overall pick.

"Myles Garrett is having one of the most amazing Combines for a defensive lineman I can remember,'' tweeted Matt Miller of nfldraftscout.com.

"Garrett basically not giving the Browns a choice at No. 1,'' tweeted draft expert Dane Brugler of CBS Sports and nfldraftscout.com.

"He's having a monster morning,'' NFL Network's Rich Eisen said during the broadcast.

Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who was Jevon Kearse's first defensive coordinator in 1999, loves Garrett, a league source said. Kearse, the Titans first-round pick that year, earned AP NFL Rookie of the Year honors in 1999 with 14.5 sacks In his first three years with the Titans, he had 36 sacks. The Titans also went from 8-8 in 1998 to 13-3 and a Super Bowl berth in 1999. They also went 13-3 in 2000.

"They're both freaks,'' said the source. "And Kearse changed the Titans' franchise.''

Garrett certainly displayed that on Sunday in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium.

With Browns coach Hue Jackson looking on, Garrett demonstrated incredible speed, strength and agility.

He blazed a 4.64 in the 40-yard dash, tied for the fifth fastest time in Combine history by a 270-pound defensive lineman. Browns defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah is third on that list at 4.63. Ogbah, the Browns second-round pick last year (No. 32 overall) had a solid rookie season for the Browns leading the team with 5.5 sacks.

And Garrett told NFL Network's Kim Jones he wasn't happy with his time.

He also dazzled scouts and coaches with his 41'' vertical leap. It was the first time a 270-pound defensive lineman recorded a vertical leap of 40 or more inches since Mario Williams in 2006. Williams, picked No. 1 by the Texas in 2006, recorded 30.5 sacks in his first three seasons for the Texas and went on to become a four-time Pro Bowler and three-time first team All-Pro.

"He is a freak,'' tweeted ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay. "A 41'' vert. Really?''

Garrett also finished second among NFL defensive linemen by bench-pressing 225 pounds 33 times. The highest was Auburn's Cal Lawson at 35.

Garrett (6-4, 272) also turned in a 10' 8'' broad jump.

One NFL scout was overheard by NFL.com's Gil Brandt after Garrett's 40-time saying, 'we can all go home now.'

Garrett is one of the players the Browns have been strongly considering with the No. 1 overall pick. The others are quarterbacks Mitch Trubisky and Deshaun Watson, and Alabama pass-rusher Jonathan Allen, who ran the 40 in 5.00 and bench-pressed 21 times because of arthritic shoulders.

Jackson said at the Senior Bowl that a good quarterback trumps an elite non-QB in the draft, but Garrett will likely be too much of a no-brainer to take the risk. The Browns can also trade back up in the round to grab one of the top quarterbacks, or hope that one is available at No. 12.

The Browns can also knock it out of the park on both sides of the ball if they draft Garrett at No. 1 and then land Jimmy Garoppolo with the No. 12 pick.

The Browns obviously need a quarterback, but probably won't be able to pass on the consensus best player in the draft.

In addition to the stellar workout, Garrett shined in his podium interview, and apologized to the Browns in his interview with them Saturday night for jokingly asking the Cowboys to trade up and draft him.

What did he tell plan to tell them?

"I'm sorry,'' he said.

As for turning around the losing program, he's up to the challenge.

"No, I mean everybody has their down years and at anytime can be turned around," Garrett said. "The Cowboys, they turned around their season in a big way, and anybody can do that."

Garrett lived up to what he planned to do on Sunday.

"I feel like I'm the best player in the draft and I feel like I'll prove that today and tomorrow,'' he said.

And then he went out and did just that.

Watson with the 3rd or Kizer if we trade up into the latter half of the 1st round.



But Garrett, damn what a monster. If the Browns and 9ers both do something stupid (which is a total possibility) then a Garrett/Floyd pass rushing duo would be a very, very harsh nightmare for our divisional foes.

Romo would auto put the Browns above .500

But time out, can you really ban posters???

How did you allow the OTC to be 90% Trump threads for an entire year? SMH

Nick Young averaging 12 Trump threads a day...completely decimated the OTC...never once got a warning.
