Myles Garrett laughs off Bruce Smith's criticism

Myles Garrett laughs off Bruce Smith's criticism

"It's easy in this world to judge based on the headlines, and I think increasingly we're finding and Donald Trump's finding this out, how hard it is to survive in a public job and that's what being the No. 1 draft pick is for about three or four months and now he's going to understand it's a longer-term deal that he asked for and he wants it". So much has been made about what the Browns are trying to create. You are trying to go out there and win games just like they are.

About a week before the draft, Warren Sapp called Garrett "lazy." He's very confident in his abilities. "He's about as hard-working.as any college prospect we've had".

The Browns are banking on Garrett's collegiate production translating to the National Football League, as they hope to improve a defense that ranked 30th in sacks, 30th in points allowed and 31st in yardage allowed last season. Garrett does not come across as disrespectful either. In that span, they'll have time to acclimate themselves to the rigors - both on and off the field - of professional football.

Roethlisberger recently made it clear the Steelers will use Garrett's comments as bulletin-board material while they prepare to visit the Browns on September 10 for the regular-season opener.

The Browns rookies won't join their veteran counterparts until May 23, which marks the first OTA practice of the offseason.

Hall of Fame defensive end Bruce Smith had a blunt message to Myles Garrett when the pair watched film on draft day.

Garrett spent parts of practice Friday trying to implement Smith's.

"I'm going to be myself, and I'm not going to hide", said Garrett. If Garrett can be different, the long-lost Browns might finally end their trance-like walk through endless night. Garrett, for a trash-talker, took the critique in stride (courtesy of Cleveland.com).

Garrett said he's excited for the opportunity with the Browns and isn't putting any more pressure on himself, despite being the top pick in the draft.

Garrett said this is the first time he remembers being criticized for lack of speed. And as long as he can produce by leading the Cleveland Browns to victories, he will get his respect.

Ok, so Garrett isn't the first shorts' superstar we've seen in Berea.
