Myles Garrett Asks Cowboys To Trade Up For Him In Video

Feb 10, 2017 9:34 PM

In a video from December that was released on Friday, Myles Garrett asked Jerry Jones to trade up to select him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The ESPN video, released Friday, was taken during a relaxed interview session at the College Football Awards show Dec. 8.


His answer was "100 percent supposed to be fun," the producer said.

"All right, I'm speaking to you, Jerry," Myles Garrett said. "Mr. Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up. Please. I would love to play in Dallas. Just make it happen."

In a separate video for KRIV-TV in Houston that was posted on Twitter on Thursday, Garrett said he would "definitely" like to play for the Browns.

"People might say, oh they're this, they're that, or I made a comment about cold weather and they kind of pointed toward Cleveland," Garrett said. "It doesn't matter to me. I'll play wherever they put me. It's about your mindset you go into it [with]. If you go in there with a mindset that you're going to turn things around, you can make that contagious and people start to believe in it, then you can turn it into a winning program wherever you go."

Garrett grew up in Arlington where the Cowboys play.

Myles Garrett Will Skip NFL Draft Ceremony

Feb 10, 2017 1:26 PM

Myles Garrett plans to skip the 2017 NFL Draft ceremony, instead watching at his home in Arlington, Texas.

Garrett is widely expected to be the top pick in the draft.

Last year, 25 prospects attended the draft.

Two years ago, the No. 1 pick of the 2015 draft, Jameis Winston, opted out of the chance to attend the draft in person because his grandmother was unable to travel for health reasons while Marcus Mariota also stayed home.

Kyle Shanahan To Control 49ers' 53-Man Roster, John Lynch Will Draft

Feb 10, 2017 8:18 AM

Perhaps learning from past mistakes, the San Francisco 49ers are attempting to avoid conflict between new hires Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch.

Shanahan will have control of the active, 53-man roster. Meanwhile, Lynch will have control of the full 90-man roster, and free agency and the draft. However, decisions will come with a requirement of the approval of the other.

"Free agency and draft, I think I have, but in all of those it's also written that subject to approval of the other guy," Lynch said. "That's the way we wanted it, that's the way we wanted it reflected, but that's the reality of it."
