INDIANAPOLIS — When asked if he could sack one quarterback in the league currently playing today, Myles Garrett answered before the question was finished: “Tom Brady.”
When asked why, Garrett delivered an answer that brings us back to an old quarterback debate in the NFL.
“I’m a Peyton Manning fan.”
Garrett has been mocked No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns in numerous mock drafts, including Dan Kadar’s with SB Nation. He impressed immediately when he got to Indianapolis with his measurables, coming in at 6’4 1/2, weighing 272, and boasting a hand size of 10 1/4” and an arm length of 35 1/4”.
He said on Saturday, “I feel like I’m the best player in the draft. I feel like I will prove that today and tomorrow.”
Garrett was asked about comparisons to Von Miller, and while he was complimentary of Miller’s skills, Garrett said, “I feel like I’m a little bit bigger, little bit stronger, and I’ll catch up in that regard to skill.”
He also said that that he wanted to be compared to the greatest of all time.
If Garrett reaches his potential, Tom Brady may be taking a look at the schedule and thinking about what he said about wanting to sack him.
