Every year, once we get into the regular season, many in the media are looking to see how the top draft picks played on opening weekend. While some high picks played well, it’s always some of the lower-round guys who gather the most attention.
That’s not to say that the premium picks are underachieving, it’s just a case of how they played in week one.
Everyone wanted to see how the draft’s top player would play. Myles Garrett, the number one pick in last April’s draft, injured an ankle in practice late last week and did not suit up for
Cleveland’s game against Pittsburgh. Garrett has a high ankle sprain and it could be a few more weeks before he sees the field. Even when he does play, he might not be at 100 percent as high ankle sprains have a way of lingering for quite a while.
