Todd McShay: Myles Garrett Is The Only Player Who Can Go No. 1 Overall

Here's the only player who can go No. 1 overall, according to ESPN's Todd McShay.

ESPN NFL Draft analyst Todd McShay made an appearance on Russillo & Kanell this afternoon.

Early on in his appearance, McShay was asked how many players have the chance to go No. 1 overall in this year's NFL Draft.

His answer is a little surprising.

"One," he said.

That one, of course, being Texas A&M defensive lineman Myles Garrett, the consensus top prospect in this year's draft class.

While Garrett is the clear top prospect, it's a little weird that McShay thinks he's the only player that has a chance to go No. 1 overall, especially with so many teams at the top of the draft needing quarterbacks.

"It's a weird year," McShay said.

You would think a guy like North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky could maybe impress a team so much that someone would want to get up to No. 1 to take him, but that's apparently not the case.

Here's the order for the top 10 picks in this year's draft:

  1. Cleveland Browns
  2. San Francisco 49ers
  3. Chicago Bears
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars
  5. Tennessee Titans
  6. New York Jets
  7. Los Angeles Chargers
  8. Carolina Panthers
  9. Cincinnati Bengals
  10. Buffalo Bills

The 2017 NFL Draft's first round is set to take place on Thursday, April 27 in Philadelphia.
