Myles Garrett may want to hope that the Browns don't trade the Patriots the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft for Jimmy Garoppolo. Otherwise, his life as a pro could start off a little awkwardly.
At the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Garrett -- the defensive end from Texas A&M who is the consensus top pick in this draft class -- was asked which quarterback he'd most like to sack.
His answer? Tom Brady.
His reasoning? He's a Peyton Manning fan.

Odds are that the Browns and Patriots won't strike a deal involving Garoppolo and the No. 1 overall pick, meaning the Patriots will have no shot at drafting Garrett. (Even if they did make a trade, the Patriots would probably want to trade down from No. 1 overall and stockpile picks, right?)
But if they did, and if the Patriots took Garrett, one would think that Brady would have something to say to the new guy on his first day of work.
