Draft Week: Top LB Candidates

2 of 7

First up is Von Miller. Many believe him to be the cream of the entire 2011 Draft crop. He has speed. There’s no question there. At times it looks as if he underestimates how fast he is and overshoots his mark. He is tall and can jump, which will help in deflecting passes at the line. He does tend to get swallowed up by the big boys up front. His strength is in his tackling ability. Overall, he is a good athlete and worthy enough to add to a football team. I do not subscribe to the hype of him being the best overall pick, not after looking at the tape on him. I see him being picked up by the Detroit Lions in the first round.

Von MIller:
6′ 3″
246 lbs.
NFL Combine Stats: 40 Time: 40.53 (2nd best), 1st in Broad Jump, 3 Cone Drill and 60 YD Shuttle
