2011 NFL Mock Draft: Buffalo Upgrades Outside Linebacker with Von Miller
Will Buffalo Draft Von Miller Despite Holes in His Game?
Von Miller has shown an awful lot of explosion and athleticism in getting ready for the NFL but I wonder how he will translate to the next level if he isn’t playing in a 3-4 scheme like he did in college at Texas A&M.
Miller was a true sack artist for the Aggies and I am sure that part of his game will translate but what about the ability to play in pass coverage or against the run? I am sure that the Bills won’t have Miller rushing the passer on every single down especially if he is playing opposite Shawne Merriman for the Bills.
Miller had a very impressive combine in which he ran a 4.5 40 and he also showed some great athleticism in his position drills.
The question is whether the linebacker will be able to fill the holes in his game. Sure he has a ton of athleticism that will help him at the next level but I think the Bills could do better with this pick, but they won’t.
