Pulling back the curtain on the vote

What some of our analysts are saying about Garrett


"Garrett is the most gifted pass rusher in the country and he demands a double team each and every Saturday." -- Daniel Jeremiah

* * *

"Garrett's shredded physique foreshadows his explosive traits and talent. If Garrett has added any pass-rush tricks to his repertoire, he's about to give SEC left tackles the everlasting blues." -- Lance Zierlein

* * *

"Explosive pass rusher with exceptional first-step quickness and snap-count anticipation." -- Bucky Brooks

* * *

"Explosive, fast, and getting better against the run. Bottom line, he's the best edge rusher in CFB, and all teams that play against him have to account for him every snap." -- Charles Davis

* * *

"There won't be a defensive end in the country this year to draw more extra blocking help for offensive tackles -- double-teams, chip blocks, whatever it takes -- than Garrett." -- Chase Goodbread

* * *

"Opponents know Garrett's coming on every pass play, yet he's managed 24 sacks in his first two seasons with the Aggies. His burst, flexibility, length, and acceleration make him a tough ask for any left tackle." -- Chad Reuter
