With the 2017 NFL Combine well in the rearview mirror and the focus now on cross-examining every facet of play for hundreds of draft-eligible players, the Pro Football Focus team has put together a list of some of the more intriguing prospect matchups from the 2016 season — one-on-one meetings that featured players who are surely going to hear their name called come April.

Whether it was a quarterback targeting a cornerback or an edge defender blowing past an offensive tackle, some 2016 games pitted top players against one another in a preview of how they may fare against next-level talent. We’ve been revealing these matchups one at a time over the past few days.

Here are some of the matchups we’ve broken down thus far:

  • Cal QB Davis Webb vs. Top Pac-12 CB prospects

  • Miami CB Corn Elder vs. Top ACC QB prospects

  • QB Chad Kelly vs. CB prospects Tre’Davious White and Marlon Humphrey

  • Clemson WR Mike Williams vs. Top DB prospects

Today we take a look at former Texas A&M edge defender Myles Garrett versus UCLA's Conor McDermott, the No. 6 player on PFF's OT draft board.

Garrett torched McDermott for six QB hurries, four QB hits, and a sack in the pair's 2016 meeting. The former Aggie — PFF’s top-ranked prospect — accumulated a season-high 11 total QB pressures, third-most of his career for a single game, and the most since Week 10 of his freshman year in 2014 against UL Monroe.
