After spending the last three years in College Station, former Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett would like to return home.

Garrett, a native of Arlington, Texas, where the Dallas Cowboys play their home games, would like to be drafted by the Cowboys. The only problem is that Dallas’ first pick comes at No. 28, long after Garrett, a projected single-digit pick, will be off the board.

The Aggie pass-rusher made a plea on ESPN for Dallas to send picks and QB Tony Romo to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the No. 1 pick.

“I’m speaking to you, Jerry,” Garrett says in the video below. “Mr. (Jason) Garrett, make it happen. Dak Prescott is leading our team right now. I need you to take Tony Romo, take a couple picks, and give them to Cleveland so you can pick me up, please.

“I’d love to play in Dallas, let’s make it happen.”

If Garrett is drafted by any team besides the Cowboys, he’ll probably have to stop saying “our team” in reference to Dallas.

  • Maybe Romo and ONE pick (1st or 2nd round?) but not Romo & a couple of picks. As a Boys fan it would be nice to have him though.

    • No way Cleveland would make that deal. It would take Romo, an OLineman, and still a couple of picks. I don’t see a trade happening.

      • You’re right about that. Even if Dallas had the #7 or #8 pick in the draft to package for it in a “mortgage the future” move, they wouldn’t do it. Moving all the way up from late 20’s happens only if Jerry Jones decides to prove he is insane by keeping Romo and trading Dak Prescott for the pick.

        I say this as a lifelong Cowboys fan.

  • Miles Garrett is not even best player in SEC don’t care what draft experts say. Jon Allen, Reuben Foster, and Leonard Fournette are all better football players. And Derek Barnett would be a better value as late 1st round-early 2nd round pick than Garrett at #1 for the money. Garrett not nearly as talented as Clowney was coming out of South Carolina.

  • yea… gotta say, keeping your picks and taking Barnett (if he’s miraculously still there) at 28 sounds better for the cowboys. Would be fine with the saints drafting Barnett.
