When asked about what he will do with his first big check in the NFL, defensive end Myles Garrett told scouts “I probably spoil my parents after all they’ve done for me and give back.”

The first player to be taken No. 1 overall in the 2017 NFL Draft was defensive end Myles Garrett. For the first time in school history, the Aggies had one of their own hear their name called first.
In the hours leading to the draft, there was a lot of speculation and controversy regarding the No. 1 pick. The Cleveland Browns were still deliberating on whether to take Garrett or University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
When it came time to select the first player of the 2017 draft class, the Browns when with Garrett. Garret is the fourth defensive player taken No. 1 overall in the last 17 years.
There were other notable selections in the first round included Trubisky who went No. 2 overall to the Chicago Bears following a trade with the San Francisco 49ers. Going No. 3 overall to the Niners was Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas.  Former LSU running back Leonard Fournette was taken at No. 4. Rounding out the top five picks in the draft was wide receiver Corey Davis from Western Michigan.
