In 34 games over his three years at Texas A&M, Garrett registered 141 total tackles, including 81 solo stops and 60 assists, with 31.0 quarterback sacks, seven forced fumbles, one recovery, five passes defended and one interception.
"That's what my dad told me, but I feel like that's every team, they want to introduce the rookies or especially the guys who are drafted high into the league and show them what it's all about", Garrett said. "It's amusing because once you get that first carry you want more, so I just want more".
Kizer finished 11-for-18 for 184 yards with a TD and no interceptions - and a rating of 114.1. "I need to go watch the tape and all that". Then there was the 45 yard game winning touchdown thrown with the blitz descending on him on 4th and 2. Osweiler (6-of-14, 42 yards, 50.3 rating) was way off on some of his throws, including overshooting Ricardo Louis and Seth DeValve.
Most expected Kizer to be a first-round pick entering the 2016 season, but he struggled for the Fighting Irish and fell to pick No. 52 in the second round.
DL Trevon Coley: Perhaps the biggest surprise of training camp, Coley had a debut that validated an unexpected rise up the depth chart, recording four tackles and strip-sack of Grayson in the second quarter that set up a Browns touchdown.
The Browns rallied past the Saints on Thursday night in their preseason opener. Rookie CB Marshon Lattimore, a first-round pick from Ohio State, injured his knee during practice this week and didn't play. With questions about Cody Kessler and rookie DeShone Kizer, though, maybe Osweiler is their guy.
During Thursday night's preseason loss to Cleveland, though, Nassib found the playing field evened out by the simplicity of the Saints' game plan, and he acquitted himself well. "When he had an opportunity to rush, he rushed well and that there was a little pressure here and there".
"Hopefully, there are a lot of other things other than the long ball that got me here, but I am pretty confident in extending the ball down the field", Kizer said. It started with first pick Myles Garrett.
Our Prediction: Since it's the preseason and the Saints are resting some quality players, we'll give this one to the Browns on their home turf.
