Texas A&M LB/DE Von Miller was expected to be a middle-to-lower first-round pick coming into Senior Bowl practice week, but the six-foot-three, 240-pounder has decided to do something about that. Adam Schefter thinks Miller has become a top-five pick based on his superb week of Senior Bowl practices, and the raves don’t stop there.
Though Miller has been working with linebackers, he’s also joined in pass-rush drills with defensive linemen, where his excellent play went to another level.
Big talk and big comparisons, but remember we’re talking about a player who led the nation in sacks in 2009, is a two-time first-team All-American, and won the Butkus Award in 2010. He’s led many observers and evaluators to describe him as smart and classy, too, which never hurts, unless if you’re Myron Rolle.
