I don't like drafting Miller that high, though, and honestly don't understand the desire to draft a linebacker whose main strength would be somewhat handcuffed by our scheme within the top ten, much less the top 15. If I'm drafting a linebacker at #5 and above, I want to be sure that the guy is a monster against the run and can shut it down sideline to sideline while being able to play the pass and cover TEs. I'd prefer those skills along with a talent for blitzing to a fast fluid athlete who specializes in rushing the passer above all else.
I could not disagree more rushing the passer and covering tight ends were our schooled heal last year. Miller would be my guy at 2. I think he can be derrick thomas.
