Myles Garrett was a soft-spoken, thoughtful player with eclectic interests as a Texas A&M Aggie — He writes poetry! He wants to get a Ph.D. in paleontology! — but he’s also prone to the same, uh, aggressive behavior you’d expect of a player talented enough to be considered the runaway selection for the top overall selection in next week’s NFL Draft.

In an interview with ESPN The Magazine, Garrett admitted to “choking out” an LSU tight end during the Aggies’ game with the Bayou Bengals on Thanksgiving night.

ESPN: What’s the meanest thing you’ve ever done?
Garrett: Against LSU my last year, I choked out their tight end two times in a row.

ESPN: That’s pretty mean.
Garrett: [Laughs] He had it coming.
