Or, they could just do the smart thing and draft Myles Garrett.

"The Cowboy video", the former Arlington Martin and Texas A&M star said.

Yes. Somewhere in Berea, droll-filled jaws were being picked up of the floor and Garrett's name was formally scribbled onto the Browns draft card. It turns out that was no joke. While Garrett long has been projected as the No. 1 player in the draft, Allen is widely considered a Top 2 or 3 player.

"Garrett measured with 35.5" arms and 10.25" hands. They do their Combine workout with the defensive linemen, but they are more likely to end up in a linebacker role. This is a guy that was already being billed as a can't-miss No. 1 pick.

Additionally, Garrett also recorded a 41-inch vertical.

"I'm speaking to you, Jerry", Garrett says on the video.

If they do not take Garret, the Browns are only in position to trade down and get the huge haul that a player of Garrett's talents deserve.

Hooker, who's thought to be a top 10 draft pick, suffered the injuries in the team's regular season finale against MI.

In celebration of the country's finest group exercise event, I've put together the All-Time All-NFL Combine Team, updated periodically. "I have to keep on rising".

On why he's a top-5 pick: "Because I'm a good player".

All four combine participants for the University of IL had their workouts scheduled Sunday. Many analysts have mocked Louisiana State safety Jamal Adams to the Jaguars at No. 4, and there is starting to be some buzz for Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas there.

He capped off his day with a casual 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump.

Knight said he has been asked by teams about Garrett, and said, "A few teams have asked me about it, just who he is off the field and things like that".

Here is a comparison of Garrett's numbers with some of the elite National Football League players. Then came the 40 yard dash. He tied for 14th in both events.

There was talk pre-combine that Sanders wouldn't run the 40 at all; he later said he would take his medicals, run his 40 and go home.

Garrett did, however, out-jump Clowney by four inches and put up 12 more reps on the bench.

Interestingly, linebacker Connor Harris of Lindenwood University posted similar numbers to the Illini's Nickerson.

Garrett bench pressed 225 pounds 33 times.
