After being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett didn’t quite have the rookie season he hoped for. The Texas A&M product certainly showed flashes and had seven sacks, but he also missed five games due to injury, and of course was on a Browns team that won zero games.

But all indications are that Garrett will at least be very good at the NFL level, and probably a superstar. The 6’4″, 272-pounder was a no-brainer No. 1 overall pick because of his freakish athleticism to go with a monster body. Here’s what NFL.Com’s Lance Zierlein had to say on Garrett’s draft profile page:

Elite edge rusher who possesses rare explosiveness and the fluid-movement skills and agility of an NBA shooting guard. Good size, but he’s never likely going to be a hold-your-ground run defender, and might be best suited as an outside linebacker. However, his ability to explode into the backfield through a gap or around the edge gives him disruptive potential on every snap. Garrett still needs to fine-tune his pass-rush strategy and could stand to give more consistent effort from the start of the snap until the whistle. But his pass-rush production and athletic traits point toward an all-pro career.

Well, Garrett recently showed off his NBA-esque athleticism at an LA Fitness basketball court. Check out this block in which Garrett gets WAY up and rejects the hell out of a dunk try:

That’s absolutely insane. And Garrett had an impressive dunk as well:
