Former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is widely expected to be taken with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns, but if he has it his way, that's not where he'll end up.
In the above video, Garrett makes a plea to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett to trade up and draft him.
“I’m speaking to you, Jerry,” Garrett says on the video. “Mr. (Jason) Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, and give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up, please.
“I’d love to play in Dallas, let’s make it happen.”
Garrett has already said that he will not be attending to draft, opting to stay home in Arlington and watch it on television.
He was largely limited due to injuries over the past year, but still racked up 33 tackles with 11.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks in 10 games. The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder also forced two fumbles and recovered one.Back to the Dallas Cowboys Newsfeed
