Myles Garrett's strong finish to his rookie season garnered some recognition Tuesday from the Pro Football Writers of America.
The Browns' top pick in the 2017 draft was named to the group's annual all-rookie team. He joined Philadelphia's Derek Barnett, Cincinnati's Carl Lawson and Dalvin Tomlinson of the New York Giants on the team's defensive line.
Garrett, who missed the first four games because of an ankle injury and another because of a concussion, finished with a team-high seven sacks. He ranked second among all NFL rookies and third in Browns history for most by a rookie.
Garrett also had 30 tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
"I did well but not up to my standards," Garrett said. "I want to be a force in this league and didn't feel like I did that this year, but there is always next year and there is always the next game."
The Saints led all NFL teams with four rookies on the PFWA team (RB Alvin Kamara, OL Ryan Ramczyk, CB Marshon Lattimore and S Marcus Williams). Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was named the rookie of the year.
