Cleveland Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett has already received advice from Hall-of-Fame defensive end Bruce Smith, according to Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beach Journal. After all, here he was, preparing to be the draft's No. 1 pick. I want us to channel some of those. And Smith, there through the NFL Players Association, was being critical of the game that got him there.

The top pick should help a very bad pass rush. The team said he will miss time during the 2017 season but did not give a timeframe for his recovery.

The Browns rookies won't join their veteran counterparts until May 23, which marks the first OTA practice of the offseason.

"You are looking at the back tip (of the ball) and trying to get your first move on him so you can beat him for that first step and beat him to the midline", Garrett said of the offensive lineman. "I don't know why you think of me like that, but everyone is entitled to an opinion", he said. I'm not going to do anything to jeopardize them or myself. "It's easy in this world to judge based on the headlines, and I think increasingly we're finding and Donald Trump's finding this out, how hard it is to survive in a public job and that's what being the No. 1 draft pick is for about three or four months and now he's going to understand it's a longer-term deal that he asked for and he wants it".

And he let her spring the news on her son as well! "I just got presented with the best Mother's Day gift ever", she tells him. Playing in a limited role in nine of 12 games last season, Anderson recorded 20 total tackles and a half sack.

"Hopefully I can roll with these guys and be a benefit", Garrett said.

That process starts by indoctrinating them into a culture that Jackson described last week as strong as it's been in two seasons. "But I can be the best I can be". They traded back into the first round at 29 to select tight end David Njoku, but this is about the defenders. "Can't take any time off".

"If it doesn't get in the way of my routine, I'd be very happy to go [see the Cavs]", Garrett said. "Pounce got a big kick out of it".

Garrett has been the subject of criticism from multiple former National Football League defensive linemen in recent months. "I was just running around and my knee just kind of locked up on me.". Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams knows Smith and the NFL Network reported that Smith will visit the Browns at minicamp or training camp.
