Tuesday Morning Man: Myles Garrett!
A few months ago I got an amazing deal to subscribe to ESPN Magazine. The latest issue came today and it had this stunning guy on the cover. He’s Myles Garrett who is the projected number one pick in the 2017 NFL draft. The 21-year-old defensive end out of Texas A&M is described as ‘a 6-foot-4, 272-pound man-eater’ by the magazine. He totaled 32½ sacks, 48½ tackles for loss and 7 forced fumbles in three seasons, despite playing much of 2016 with a high ankle sprain. To say he’s ambitious is an understatement. He tells the magazine: ‘I want to show that I’m in a league of my own. I don’t want anybody to be like me. By the end of my career, I don’t want to hear talk of another Myles Garrett. I want to be the greatest. The greatest that ever played, regardless of position or era. They say that’s Jerry Rice. If his total greatness is considered the best of all time, I want to exceed that.’
