Myles Garrett’s combine measurements are nearly identical to Jadeveon Clowney’s

Myles Garrett is hoping to go No. 1 overall just like Jadeveon Clowney and he’s off to a good start.

Myles Garrett won’t hit the field for workouts at the NFL Combine until Sunday, but he’s already drawing comparisons to the No. 1 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, Jadeveon Clowney.

Garrett weighed in at the Combine on Friday and the numbers are strikingly similar to Clowney, if not slightly more impressive:

Comparing combine results is a natural part of the NFL Draft process. A year ago, much was made about the numbers of Alabama running back Derrick Henry mirroring those of Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

But the comparison between Garrett and Clowney is much more significant. The Texas A&M pass rusher is the favorite to be the No. 1 pick, but there are doubts if he has the special qualities to be worth that selection.

Measuring in similarly to Clowney — a player who went No. 1 overall and has since developed into a star — and performing just as well in timing drills would be a good way for Garrett to make sure the Cleveland Browns are unable to pass on him with the top pick.
