My take
Miller won the 2010 Butkus award for a reason, he simply was the most exciting, productive linebacker in he nation. One of his best qualities is his versatility and all-around skill set. He lead the nation in sacks in 2007 as a 4-3 defensive end, then came back in a completely different scheme as a 3-4 outside linebacker and won the Butkus award. His tape was so impressive and fun to watch that I didn’t want it to end. Miller ran a 4.53 at the combine, had the fastest 60 yard shuttle, and the fastest 3 cone drill for a reason. His game speed is more impressive then all of these numbers. Miller is the total package with so much energy, it could uplift an entire defense and he could be a building block for a defense. He can go as high to the Denver Broncos at #2, and no lower then Arizona at #5 overall. I expect him to compete with Patrick Peterson for Defensive Rookie of the Year and even a Pro Bowl.
