It didn’t take long for Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett to display the potential that helped him become a No. 1 overall draft pick in his NFL debut on Sunday.
Garrett, who missed the Browns’ first four games due to injury, recorded a sack on the very first play of his professional career, entering on third down and tackling New York Jets quarterback Josh McCown in the backfield.
Garrett spent the past four weeks recovering from a sprained ankle injury that occurred one week before Cleveland’s season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced that the No. 1 overall pick would make his debut early Sunday morning.
Garrett enjoyed a decorated collegiate career at Texas A&M, where he set the SEC freshman sack record with 11.5 in 2014 and was a two-time first-team All-American and All-SEC in 2015 and 2016.
