2011 Outside Linebacker Prospects

#40 Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M

QB / RB / FB / WR / TE / OT / OG / C / DE / DT / OLB / ILB / CB / FS / SS / K / P


1. Von Miller
Experience: Senior | School: Texas A&M
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 246 lbs. | Arm: 33 1/2 in. | Hand: 9 1/4 in.
40 Time: 4.53 sec. | Bench: 21 Reps | Projected: Top 5


Analysis:
Von Miller is one of the elite prospects this draft has to offer. He was already a top 5 lock, but he may have pushed himself into the top 3 with a strong combine. (2/28/11)

Season Stats:
68 Tackles, 17.5 TFL, 10.5 Sacks, 6 QBH, INT, 3 FF, 2 FR, 6 PBU




2. Akeem Ayers*
Experience: Junior | School: UCLA
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 254 lbs. | Arm: 33 in. | Hand: 9 in.
40 Time: 4.80 sec. | Bench: 18 Reps | Projected: Top 25


Analysis:
I was very disappointed with Ayers. He ran a terrible 40, and was not very consistent in the drills to me. He should still be a first round lock in my opinion, but there is no guarantee. (2/28/11)

Season Stats:
68 Tackles, 10.0 TFL, 4.0 Sacks, 2 INT, 2 FF, 2 FR, 4 PBU




3. Brooks Reed
Experience: Senior | School: Arizona
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 263 lbs. | Arm: 32 1/4 in. | Hand: 10 in.
40 Time: N/A | Bench: 30 Reps | Projected: Round 1-2


Season Stats:
47 Tackles, 10.0 TFL, 6.5 Sacks, 1 FR, 2 PBU




4. Justin Houston*
Experience: Junior | School: Georgia
Height: 6-3 | Weight: 270 lbs. | Arm: 34 1/2 in. | Hand: 10 7/8 in.
40 Time: 4.63 sec. | Bench: 30 Reps | Projected: Round 1-2


Analysis:
Many questioned Justin Houston gaining about 15 pounds. Well, he ran an impressive 4.63 40 time, and was smooth in every drill. He may be able to play defensive end in a 4-3, which helps his stock in my opinion. (2/28/11)

Season Stats:
67 Tackles, 18.5 TFL, 10.0 Sacks, 44 QBH, INT, 1 FF, 2 FR, 2 PBU




5. Bruce Carter

7. Dontay Moch

Height: 6-1 | Weight: 248 lbs. | Arm: 33 in. | Hand: 9 1/4 in.
40 Time: 4.44 sec. | Bench: N/A | Projected: Round 2-3


Analysis:
I think we all thought that Von Miller would stand out from the linebackers. He did, but Dontay Moch was the headliner. He ran a 4.4 40, and looked great in all of the drills. He should not be a first round pick, but he could be an early day 2 pick. (2/28/11)
