Myles Garrett is a chill guy.
In fact, he plans to handle the biggest night of his football life in a cool, relaxed way. And that moment will include eating crawfish.
In a video posted by ESPN’s Sam Khan Jr. on Thursday, the former Texas A&M defensive end revealed how he would react to becoming the first overall pick in the NFL draft on April 27. Garrett is considered a strong favorite to go in the top slot, so it’s fair to expect that he has planned out how he’ll manage the situation.
“If my name’s called first, then I’ll sit there, probably look at my two best friends and laugh, smile with my parents and give them hugs and go about eating my crawfish,” he told reporters.
Garrett has earned that fantastic seafood dinner, no matter when his name is called on draft night.
He made waves last month when he announced intentions to watch the first round from his home in Arlington, Texas, with family and friends instead of taking part in the festivities in Philadelphia. A home-cooked meal likely will be part of that experience, so you can’t blame Garrett if his mind turns to food when he learns where he’ll begin his NFL career.
Get that crawfish and crab ready.
