Overview:

Garrett is clearly the most dominant pass rusher in this years draft, he had 32.5 career sacks, plus did a great job of getting tackles for loss, with a total of 48.5, he was also a tackling machine, coming up with a total of 145 over his 3 seasons at Texas A&M. He has great edge rush size, height wise, he has great speed, he is a dynamic pass rusher, and he gets pressure on the quarterback. He is a dominant defender, a sure fire tackler, has great instincts, he is a powerful defender, and he commands double teams. However he is a bit light on the weight, so he to me, is either an outside linebacker in a 3-4, or he needs to gain some extra weight, and then he can play defensive end in a 4-3, I expect Garrett to be among the first 5 players taken, and should be in consideration for the top overall pick.
