This is the 81st installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one.
#95- Myles Garrett– DE- Texas A&M
I call this guy Myles “Davis” Garrett because he is smooth and loves the sax. He has even decided to jazz up his appearance this season, by incorporating different custom visors to his uniform. The Browns defensive end is so trendy right now that if Adam Sandler decided to do a re-make of Billy Madison he would probably change his famous line about relieving himself to “If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Myles Garrett.”
Garrett had a very good rookie year in 2017. He recorded 31 tackles, seven sacks, and a forced fumble. Last season he made a huge leap, nearly doubling his sack total (13.5) and tripled his forced fumbles (3). All of this while also getting help on nearly every play.
It’s no secret that the Browns defensive line is the biggest strength on the roster after their acquisitions of Sheldon Richardson and Olivier Vernon. All of this additional talent, along with holdover Larry Ogunjobi, is going to free up Garrett even more and keep defenses from only focusing on the young stud. If teams continue to double Garrett the other Browns linemen are going to feast. Regardless, this d-line is going to be a force this season and Myles Garrett is the biggest reason why.
