Myles Garrett is good. Very good.
If you needed any further proof on that statement, the defensive end will continue to give it to you.
Garrett, drafted first overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, won the Maurice Bassett award for the most outstanding rookie during the Cleveland Browns training camp. The award is voted on by the local media and is based off of not only the preseason games but also the player’s performance during training camp practices.
The Texas A&M product has been praised by many inside the Browns front office and coaching staff, including defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. Williams salivated at the thought of drafting at number one overall when he saw the opportunity to coach Garrett. Offensive Lineman Joe Thomas stated that Garrett possesses the athleticism and ability on defense that few possess. Cleveland Browns great Jim Brown even went on record to praise Garrett, calling him “a force”
So the first award of Myles Garrett’s NFL career has been received. Now he looks for more, starting with a Week One matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
