Potential No. 1 pick Myles Garrett won't attend the NFL Draft

February 10, 2017

It's still more than two full months before the NFL Draft takes place, but when Roger Goodell does walk to the podium on April 27th, there could be a bit of a letdown when he announces the No. 1 pick. That's because on Friday we learned that the man who could very likely go No. 1 overall -- former Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett -- will not attend the draft in Philadelphia.


Garrett is in Houston as one of the finalists for the Lombardi Award, which will be given to the best linebacker or lineman Saturday night, and told the Houston Chronicle that nothing will change his mind.

"I am staying home," he confirmed.
