Most NFL Draft experts expect Myles Garrett to be the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft later this week. However, one person who does not feel that Garrett should be the number one pick is former Super Bowl champion, Warren Sapp. According to Sapp, he doesn't see what makes Myles good enough to be the first overall pick in the draft and called Garrett lazy.

Warren Sapp criticism of Myles Garrett

According to Warren Sapp, he sees what the NFL Draft scouts see from Myles Garrett - the splash plays.

However, Sapp says that everyone gets splash plays but he wants more from the person that goes first in the 2017 NFL Draft. Sapp wants someone who can take over games and he said that he never once saw where Garett took over a game. Sapp said that he has watched tapes of Myles and that the former Texas A&M defensive lineman would disappear in games. That won't likely stop the Cleveland Browns from drafting Garrett with the first overall pick but Sapp believes that Myles will end up as a disappointment in the NFL.

Myles Garrett and his problems

One of the problems with Myles Garrett in 2016 was that he played much of his final season in college with a severely sprained ankle. Much like Joey Bosa last year, Myles was hampered by his injury but still showed the talent to convince a team like the Cleveland Browns that he deserves to be the first overall NFL Draft pick. However, there is also the fact that Warren Sapp claims that Myles disappears at times in games. In 2016, Garrett had 8.5 total sacks and 4.5 of them were against a weak opponent in UT San Antonio.

He had 32.5 sacks in three seasons with 16 of them against non-power conference teams. Warren Sapp claims that Myles makes maybe four plays a game and isn't even close to being a top overall NFL Draft pick.

What NFL Scouts see from Myles Garrett

ESPN ranks Myles Garrett as the top overall choice in the 2017 NFL Draft, giving him the highest scores in production, height-weight-speed, and intangibles, while lowering his score for durability. However, Garrett only played in 6 games in 2015 while only missing two games in 2016 while playing hurt.

The NFL scouts see him as a raw talent that can become a superstar in the NFL. There is also the fact that J.J. Watt also didn't have game breaking stats in college but turned into one of the best defensive players in the NFL. The last time a defensive lineman was the number one overall pick in the NFL Draft was Jadeveon Clowney, who also had injury concerns but has turned into a solid player despite battling through early career injuries.
