If Miller, who knows him as well as anyone out there, says he can be motivated and/or that Miller himself will personally motivate him what more needs to be said? Unlike every other team in the NFL we have a pro-bowl caliber pass rusher who has already 1. been outspoken about Moore's pass rush skills 2. knows him very well personally, and 3. has taken an increasingly larger leadership role in this franchise.
You could make a strong argument that drafting Moore and letting Miller give him the "come to Jesus" talk is the next step the team should be asking Miller to make. He's already proven himself to be Superman on the field, this is the chance for him to be a leader in the locker room, the weight room, and off the field.
Yes, well, I'm not comfortable with basing a 1st round selection on the theoretical premise that Von will be Moore's Tony Robbins.
