Myles Garrett announced on Saturday that he will leave Texas A&M for the 2017 NFL Draft.

Garrett is widely expected to be one of the first few picks in the draft.

"After talking with my family and my coaches, I feel it is in my best interest to declare for the 2017 NFL draft," Garrett said in a statement. "I would like to thank my teammates for always supporting me, encouraging me and holding me accountable. We are a family and I will be close with these guys forever."

In 2014, Garrett broke Jadeveon Clowney's SEC freshman sack record with 11.5. Garrett was an Associated Press All-American in 2015 and '16.
