Myles Garrett wants the Browns to draft him at No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft — or else.
The uber-talented Texas A&M defensive end, asked by ESPN the Magazine why Cleveland should take him first overall, said he'd make the Browns pay if they didn't.

I'm just gonna make plays and bring a good atmosphere to your organization. And I'm gonna start winning and winning now. And because if you don't draft me No. 1, I will punish your team for the next 10 to 12 years. I'll knock your QB out of the game every time we play you, and I'll have to kick the hell out of No. 1, whoever it is.
Garrett was then asked whom he wanted to play for most in the NFL — an obvious reference to him asking Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to trade up for him. Garrett said he wanted to be taken by the No. 1 team: "Hopefully the Browns."
When pressed further about where he'd like to play in the league, Garrett said he has no allegience to any team. Just take him No. 1 overall.
The Cowboys are my hometown team, but when push comes to shove, I want to go No. 1. I don't want trades, wondering where my fate lies. Whoever has the first pick, just go ahead and take me. I have no allegiance. I want to go No. 1.
