2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Von Miller

Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M (6'2" 237 lbs.)

Positives: Fast, hard-hitting outside linebacker who is great at collapsing the pocket. He doesn't miss many tackles and has a knack for always being around the ball. Has a skill set similar to Elvis Dumervil and can line up in many different defensive looks.

Negatives: Needs to work on getting off blocks better. He has a tendancy to get pushed away to easily by interior linemen. He could be a liability in stopping the run as he often takes himself out of plays with his outside pass rush. Doesn't have the strength or the pass coverage skilled to be an every-down linebacker in his rookie season.

  1. Congratulations Buffalo. The Broncos just can't help themselves and select another linebacker that will be a bust. They have a chance at two top rated DL's and they take another undersized linebacker. Does this mean Dumervil isn't rehabbing well? Can't play both of these guys at weakside.
