School: Texas A&M Position: DE Class: Junior Height: 6-5⅛ Weight: 261 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1
“…he’s a brilliant, natural pass-rushing talent who, at 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds, has the length, strength and ability to bend the edge. ” –Mel Kiper
Myles Garrett has an explosive first step off the edge, and combined with the physical attributes of length and flexibility, has the pass rushing qualities that all NFL teams covet. Has excellent hand skills, and gains leverage very well, with the ability to convert speed to power. More productive when given some space, making him more attractive teams that allow their defensive ends to operate slightly off the line, such as in the wide-9 formation. Must improve at the point of attack, and can improve technique and overall strength with proper coaching.
