As was widely expected, the Denver Broncos went for a potentially pass rusher as they selected Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller with the second pick of the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Miller has been on the Bronco's radar and was reportedly "the only player on their board" for tonight's first round.
Miller logged 28 sacks as an Aggie during the 2009 and 2010 seasons and wowed NFL front office personnel and scouts alike with his speed and agility. His only knock is his size, as he weighs in at only about 240 pounds. To be a dominant player in the league, he will likely have to bulk up a bit.
He now will line up opposite Elvis Dumervil and could potentially provide as dominating a pass rush as we have seen from two players on a defense.
Over here in the Phoenix area, Cardinals are disappointed because most have wanted him to fall to number five for some time.
