The first overall pick lived up to the hype.
After a seven-sack debut season, the Browns’ Myles Garrett was named to the All-Rookie team by the Pro Football Writers on Tuesday.
Garrett collected seven sacks despite playing only 11 games and starting nine, slowed by an ankle injury. He added 31 tackles, six tackles for loss, a forced fumble and fumble recovery.
