1st overall pick Garrett: ‘The only thing holding me back is me’

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is setting ambitious goals ahead of his rookie season after being selected first overall Thursday.

Garrett was considered the consensus best prospect in this year’s event, drawing comparisons to Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller.

The 21-year-old believes that he may be practically unstoppable ahead of his first campaign with the Browns.

“I want to be the best. The only thing holding me back is me. I have to learn from the veterans, just pick everybody’s brain to know what they did and to stay on track, to stay focused and not get off track at all with their goals and their dreams," Garrett said on a conference call Thursday. “Going for the rookie sack record and those lofty goals is something that I want to do, but I just want to be the best from Day 1."

Garrett isn’t lacking confidence and said he models his game around the NFL’s preeminent edge rushers.

“Von Miller, definitely, J.J. Watt, (Julius) Peppers, and (former Broncos linebacker) Demarcus Ware. Those are the guys that I usually look up to the most and try to study the game the most," Garrett said.
