Myles Garrett has drawn comparisons to some of the best pass rushers in the NFL, including Super Bowl 50 MVP and fellow Texas A&M Aggie Von Miller. On Tuesday, Miller delivered some high praise to Garrett.

“He should be the No. 1 pick, he is going to be the No. 1 pick,” Miller said to reporters.

In a recent ESPN feature by Sam Alipour, Garrett revealed that he would like to have a relationship with Miller. So far, he told Alipour the extent of their interactions has been pretty minimal.

“I haven't talked to him but two times, and it was just, ‘Hey, hello.’ Or at halftime: ‘Get after it, big dog.’ All right, will do [laughs]. The only thing I've learned from him is from studying film.”

Garrett’s reasoning for not having a relationship with Miller was simply because he’s a shy guy. Miller, on the other hand, doesn’t seem introverted:

Miller said on Tuesday that he had spent time with Garrett at the Texas A&M spring game. Based on what he told reporters, he was impressed with Garrett.

“I haven’t came across somebody that young with that type of mentality,” Miller said. “He studied architecture and paleontology and all of these dope studies.”

Miller also feels that Garrett will have an immediate impact in the AFC North, assuming he’s drafted by the Browns. “I don’t see anybody up there that’s going to be able to handle him.”

Myles Garrett is going to be a great one in the National Football League,” he concluded.
