49ers scheduled to meet with Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett

Mar 30, 2017 at 8:33 AM--

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett has upcoming visits scheduled with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears.

49ers general manager John Lynch was on hand for the Aggies' pro day on Thursday, likely to get a close look at Garrett and others.

The 49ers are permitted to host up to 30 players for visits at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, California. Visitors to the team's headquarters are not allowed to work out for the team unless they are local prospects.

Garrett is expected to be the top overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, which kicks off on April 27 in Philadelphia. The Cleveland Browns currently own the top spot in the draft.

"He's a brilliant, natural pass-rusher who looks like a top-five lock," ESPN's Mel Kiper wrote of Garrett in November. In three years at Texas A&M, Garrett had 141 tackles, 47 of which were for a loss, 31 sacks, an interception, five passes defended, and seven forced fumbles, per

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Garrett to Julius Peppers, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Elite edge rusher who possesses rare explosiveness and the fluid-movement skills and agility of an NBA shooting guard. Good size, but he's never likely going to be a hold-your-ground run defender, and might be best suited as an outside linebacker. However, his ability to explode into the backfield through a gap or around the edge gives him disruptive potential on every snap. Garrett still needs to fine-tune his pass-rush strategy and could stand to give more consistent effort from the start of the snap until the whistle. But his pass-rush production and athletic traits point toward an all-pro career."
