Myles Garrett just got drafted No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft. He’s a physical freak of the first order and has the potential to become a nightmare for NFL offensive linemen in the years to come.
Which begs the question: What was Garrett like during his high school days?
Well, this old picture from 2013 should give us a clue.

Can you imagine being an average high school offensive lineman and seeing that kid lined up opposite you?
Not surprisingly, Garrett’s high school highlights from his senior season are full of nearly uncontested avenues to quarterbacks and running backs that never had a chance.
