2011 NFL Mock Draft: Denver Broncos Take Von Miller, LB, Texas A&M, at No. 2
The Denver Broncos Take A Former Texas A&M Aggie With The No. 2 Selection
Coming from a vicious 3-4 defensive system at Texas A&M, the Denver Broncos select Von Miller with the No. 2 overall pick.
There were a few players like Marcel Dareus or Nick Fairley that could have also worked in this spot, but the undersized Miller makes the most sense here because of the versatile look he will bring to the Broncos’ defense.
In Denver, Miller could work out as a strong coverage linebacker or make his way to the line of scrimmage as a destructive pass-rush option.
Working hard to prove himself during the NFL combine, Miller quickly made his way up draft charts and solidified his place among the elite with an even better day at the Texas A&M pro day.
Once Miller begins to add bulk to his 6’3”, 243 lbs. frame, he will help provide Denver with a developed pass rush using his smart, explosive and natural moves.
Expect Von Miller to make an immediate impact as the Denver Broncos take the former Aggie at No. 2 in the NFL Draft.
