Myles Garrett, who is considered the best pass rusher in the upcoming draft, told the Houston Chronicle on Thursday that he will visit with the 49ers next month in Santa Clara.

Garrett would be an excellent fit as the designated pass rusher in San Francisco’s 2017 defense — the so-called ‘elephant’ end. As of now, the 49ers have penciled in Aaron Lynch and perhaps Tank Carradine at that spot.

The problem is that no one expects the Texas A&M defensive end to get past the Cleveland Browns, who have the first overall selection and who also could use an edge pass rusher. The Chronicle also reported Garrett would meet with the Bears, who have the third overall pick. The 49ers pick second overall.

Showing off his elite athleticism, Garrett ran a 4.56-second 40-yard dash at Texas A&M’s pro day on Thursday.
