The sense that the Browns will select Texas A&M defensive end No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft isn’t growing, because there’s no room to grow. Cleveland doing anything other than taking Garrett would be a major shock and completely disrupt our entire 2017 NFL Mock Draft system.
And it would also cause Garrett to unleash some vengeance on the Browns for the next decade. Speaking to ESPN the Magazine for a pre-draft Q&A, Garrett said that he will “punish” the Browns for the next decade and “knock” their quarterback out every time they play if they don’t take him with the top pick.
He was actually asked why the Browns should take him and gave a good answer, but there was definitely a layer of potential vengeance involved, particularly if the Browns decided to take a quarterback instead of him at No. 1.
