Von Miller, 2nd Pick in 2011 NFL Draft

Miller, Von Texas A&M 6025 237 4.60

Drafted as the 2nd Pick in the 1st round by the Denver Broncos
Three-year starter who is a productive 3-4 outside pass rusher.
Butkus Award winner in 2010. May be a Will flow type linebacker
who plays stacked behind a defensive end, but has a knack and
desire to rush the passer. Moved around in the Aggie defense to
take advantage of match-ups and alignments to blitz and pressure
the quarterback. Has blitzed and pressured the quarterback from
an inside stand up position as well as playing up or down in a 3-
point stance off the edge. Good balance and body control. Good
lateral quickness and reactions. Accelerates to the ball. Good
burst after initial contact. Can force a hurry or cause havoc in
the backfield. Quick penetrator on the goal line. Outstanding
first step quickness and timing to fly up the field. No run
responsibility on pass downs. Because of his size he will get tied
up on big offensive tackles at times and get bounced around.
The defense played a more Pittsburgh Steeler type scheme in
2010, featuring a variety of zone blitzes, pressures, and aggressive
play. Miller lined up in the Aggie “Jack” position
