Defensive lineman Myles Garrett #15 of the Texas A&M Aggies celebrates after sacking quarterback Sean White of the Auburn Tigers during an NCAA college football game on September 17, 2016 in Auburn, Alabama.

"Yeah, if I want to be the best, it has to start there", said Garrett. Ultimately, Garrett said his main priority isn't to play for a particular team, but instead to have the "No. 1 pick" label follow him for the rest of his career.

And the 21-year-old was not short of confidence after being asked why the Browns should not take a quarterback at number one. This cancellation of course probably doesn't matter in the long run, but it's another sign that Garrett is going to be under a microscope to perform in accordance with his Combine numbers for whomever drafts him.

The Browns have a lot of ways they could go with the #12 pick, after assumedly draft Garrett at #1, but which way should they?

Coming out of high school in Arlington, Texas, Garrett was rated as the second-best player in the 2013 recruiting cycle.

That aside, I do wonder what would lead to this kind of information leaking out. And because if you don't draft me No. 1, I will punish your team for the next 10 to 12 years. So I did, from LT to Deacon Jones to Bruce Smith to Reggie White to DeMarcus Ware to J.J. Watt, then to all the big-time players across the line to the linebackers. "I'll knock your QB out of the game every time we play you, and I'll have to kick the hell out of No. 1, whoever it is". He just wants to be the top pick.

It also comes with scrutiny for just about everything, especially in the weeks leading up to the draft. It's important to say that he also played part of the season injured. I particularly liked his reasoning for declining an invitation to the draft, saying about meeting the commissioner, "an awkward photo doing a side hug with the boss?"
