Texas A&M football star Myles Garrett is one of the top prospects in the 2017 NFL Draft class and many believe he is the leading contender to go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns.
Leading up to the draft, Garrett has been making the media rounds which led to a stop by the ESPN campus in Bristol, Connecticut on Monday.
During the visit, it became known that Garrett has an issue with one ESPN analyst so he skipped out on an interview for one show.
Garrett was supposed to be on Mike & Mike, but because Booger McFarland was filling in for Mike Golic, the appearance was canceled. Garrett is apparently upset about critical comments McFarland made in the past.
“I’m told there is some sort of issue that he has with something you have said,” Mike Greenberg said, via The Big Lead. “That just is what it is — that would be neither the first nor last time that has happened.”
McFarland then commented on Twitter.
Sorry to the @MikeAndMike fans, Myles Garrett didn't wanna come on due to critical comments I've said in past about his play

Can’t we all just get along?
Hopefully Garrett will get thicker skin in the NFL, because the media’s job isn’t to coddle players, but to say their true feelings. You have to ignore the criticism or use it to make you better.
