Cleveland Browns open rookie minicamp to prepare for the 2017 season

Cleveland Browns open rookie minicamp to prepare for the 2017 season

Garrett received advice from Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive end Bruce Smith before being selected by the Cleveland Browns, and knows that it's not everyday that one receives guidance from the league's all-time sack leader. After all, here he was, preparing to be the draft's No. 1 pick.

"He's a great quarterback, but when I play against him he's going down", said Taylor, according to the Medina (Ohio) Gazette. And Smith, there through the NFL Players Association, was being critical of the game that got him there.

Still, if anyone in this year's draft was tagged as a solo wrecking crew, it was Garrett, the whirlwind, mesmerizing pass rusher out of Texas A&M who prompted one scout to tell the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "When that guy came down the assembly line, it was a special day for the Almighty".

"No, I'm going to be myself", he said.

The Browns rookies won't join their veteran counterparts until May 23, which marks the first OTA practice of the offseason. And fans will get a chance to see if Myles Garrett can make good on his wish immediately because the Browns and Steelers meet each other in the first game of the season.

"I think that was kind of blown up, but I stand by it", Garrett said. "Then they can take me under their wing".

Comey's congresional testimony, along with that of ex-acting Attorney General Sally Yates, reportedly ticked off President Trump. In short, the FBI's investigation could still produce evidence of collusion.

"I don't think you guys can relate to the amount of attention that this young man or anybody who's going to be a No. 1 draft pick has", he said.

He also said he'd met teammates Jamie Collins and Chris Kirksey but wasn't talking about being shepherded by them yet. "They have made it feel like a family, but I have to prove that I belong first, and then they can really take me under their wing". "I'm trying to be better every single day. Can't take any time off".

"Unlike what [a reporter] said, he said I was slow off the ball, but that is coming from the very best", Garrett said following Saturday's minicamp practice. "But I got big things ahead of me, and there's just this whole team". I'm just going to be respectful.

And he didn't have that realization after 1 day of rookie minicamp under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams either.

Despite the negative criticism, Garrett appreciate's Smith's council.
