    OLB Von Miller, Texas A&M
    6'3 - 240 lbs. - Senior


    Highlights!





    A great fit as a 3-4 OLB, IMO.

    The speed is there, but he could use several more pass-rushing moves. It also looked like Texas wanted to exploit Miller constantly rushing from the outside of the pocket

      Can't play the run.
      Has no power moves.

      Great outside speed.
      Elite burst off the line.
      Elite bend.

      I can't see him as more than a SAM linebacker in a 34 defense or maybe only a 3rd down pass rusher. I just think he's that much of a liability against the run and I doubt he can cover.
      **** her in da *****!

        My favourite prospect next year, I believe he will go somewhere at 15-20.

          He surely can produce, but does he have what it takes? I guess we'll see this year.

              But this is a guy alot of people say will fall to the Saints in the later part of the draft, so its good to find out more about him.

                I wanted him to declare last year so the Steelers took him. Now there's no chance we get him.

                How does he compare to Larry English? English can be much more powerful right?

                  Yea, English plays with better leverage and power but no where near the burst. Comparison is tough, Von Miller = Jason Worilds maybe.

                    Oh I think you'll have a chance at him next year too.

                      This is one of the most pointless, stupid comments I have seen in awhile lol.

                        that Texas highlight does him no justice. we had so few games televised.

                        we are running a 3-4 this year and he's playing the role of "blitz the QB every play" this year. he's going to get targeted by every offense.

                        I love me some Von Miller.

                          Oh, we'll probably get the chance to choose him, but we won't because we took two this year.

                          Jason Worilds in the second, Thaddeus Gibson in the fourth. Those guys won't be starting anytime soon. Getting Miller in the first next year would simply be overkill, and very unnecessary.

                            If he has elite outside speed, elite burst and elite bend hes certainly not going to be playing sam linebacker.

                            It doesnt really matter if hes a liability in coverage either. Demarcus ware is a liability in coverage.

                            It doesnt matter if hes weak against the run, which i didnt really see there anyway.

                            All that matters is that he gets to the qb way more often than anyone else and its not even a close second. Hes a pass rusher and best yet a proven stand up pass rushing linebacker.

                            All his weaknesses may be true, but they dont even come close to measuring up to his strengths, which you enumerated previous. Since when does it matter if elite pass rushers are great against the run. As long as they get to the qb it doesnt really make any difference.

                            Because thats what they are paid to do. Not paid to be run stuffers and cover people. They do those things occasionally. They rush the passer 90% of the time.

                              Well that all depends on which 34 system you are going to be playing in. If it is the Cowboys etc as you were saying with Ware then it is fine to just pin your ears back and rush the passer. How Bill Belichick has on numerous occassions passed on undersized pass rushers due to their inability to set the edge in run support. For instance, in the past two drafts many people would assume he would have picked either Everette Brown or Jerry Hughes as the Pats had a problem rushing the passer. But due to their problems against the run he passed on them.

                              Some teams think a 34 OLB is just an undersized 43 DE while some teams will not select OLBs who are less than 6'3 265 due to what they ask them to do schematically both against the run and in pass coverage. The 34 became successful because a lot of the time offensive lines didnt know who was rushing. If every play you have 3 defensive linemen and two OLBs pass rushing then it becomes predictible.
