Von Miller Will Be a Top 3 Draft Pick?

Updated: January 28, 2011

As more news from the Senior Bowl comes out, the man stealing the show is Texas A&M’s Von Miller. Already in many draft experts top 10 (Ive had him in my top 10 almost 2 months now), people are now saying that he will be a top 3 pick!

Here are some tweets that have come across the twitterscope on Mr. Miller:

Adam Schefter tweeted:

To those asking where Texans A+M LB Von Miller will go in the NFL draft, the early signs are, Top 5 pick.

Scott Wright (DraftCountdown.com) tweets:

Please Remember Who Had It 1st! DraftCountdown.com RT @drmoyer421: @ShanePHallam Looks like Von Miller to Buffalo at 3 may be correct pick!

So that means the Panthers, Broncos, or Bills will make the move to grab Miller off the board early. Of these teams I think the Broncos or Bills is the best fit. Carolina will go with Fairley or Bowers most likely. Denver needs anything they can draft on defense, and the Bills as well.

Everyone update your mocks!

    I think that Miller will be a great player in the NFL but I’m also concerned he may be the product of a weak outside linebacker class. There isn’t much of a challenge at the top for linebackers besides Akeem Ayers from UCLA, so just like Blaine Gabbert ranked as the top quarterback, I think he might be a product of hype and thin depth in the draft. He didn’t have much of an impact in the Cotton Bowl against LSU and still struggles sometimes in coverage. I think he would fit much better in a 3-4 defense as more of a pass rusher or Lamar Woodley type after recording 28 sacks in the last two seasons. I think he would be a great pick by the Cardinals, the Titans or the Texans and would make an immediate impact with those teams but I’m not sure if he would make as much of a difference from day one if he was used more in coverage or in a 4-3.

      I agree Brennan 100%. Miller is a prototypical 3-4 rusher. His talents would be wasted in a 4-3 to a certain degree.
