Default Von Miller is going to be Special

http://www.profootballfocus.com/blog...roncos-week-2/

Miller Ö Heavy?

I wrote about Von Miller (+4.5) last week, and if I continue writing about the Broncos, I may be forced to write about him every week. Itís not just the impact plays like the forced fumble he caused last week, or the sack that he recorded this week that makes Miller such a special player. What makes Miller so intriguing is that he has avoided all the rookie mistakes that weíve come to expect from early round linebackers like Aaron Curry and Sean Weatherspoon. For example, take what he would do to tight ends when left one on one (he bull rushed Colin Cochart to redirect a run with 3:57 left in the first quarter). That was symptomatic of the every down impact Miller has, even when his name isnít appearing on the stat sheet. That he can supplement that consistent performance with highlight reel plays like the tackle for no gain he picked up by going around Andrew Whitworth with 4:51 left in the game, is why heís already shown himself to be a very special talent.

Von Miller, OLB, Denver Broncos

The rookie linebacker isnít just one to watch for the future. Heís one to watch now.

They actually compared him and some of the things he can do on the field to Lawrence Taylor on nfl network last week.

He looks great and can't imagine anything but big things from Von.

i love all the hype this guy is getting. but i worry that with a younger guy all this hype might go to his head. he seems like a well grounded dude but sometimes the spotlight can be too much for some to handle

plus it is week 3 right now.

With a hopefully healthy Doom, he has come to 2011 with a much better Linebacker from anything we had in 2009. These two should be having big plays every week. The supporting cast of 5 is what worries everyone.

I rewatched the Raiders and Bengals games focusing on Von, and PFF is dead on with their analysis. There are a lot of plays that Von disrupts by clearing out lead blockers, getting penetration or forcing his man into the backfield that are invisible on the stat sheet. I haven't been this excited about a defensive player since Champ had one of the best seasons ever for a CB in 2006.

He gets a good pressure near the end of this analysis:

I have to be honest, during the predraft months, as this guy kept creeping up higher and higher, I was like, what? All the early talk was about guys like Patrick Peterson, Nick Fairley, A.J. Green and Marcel Dareus. I was hoping the Broncos wouldn't buy into this having a LB rush the passer stuff and really wanted either Fairley or Dareus. I even thought about having Peterson on the other side of Champ. But now I can totally see why this guy just rocketed up the boards and was the late sexy pick. He could end up being the best defensive player drafted in the past 5 years or so, along with Suh.

Ayers had a very good game against the Bengals. Once Doom comes back, those three could really cause problems for the opposing offenses. If we can get a DT that is good at collapsing the pocket the pass rush would just be devastating!

Miller can do so much and is so fast he is going to be the cornerstone for this defense for years to come. I love watching him.

His second half last week was just dominant.

not yet
maybe if Tebow and Bay Bay turn out we can possibly view his tenure as a blessing in disguise, but that still might be pushing it

I never understand the hype guys get when they all of a sudden start climbing up draft boards weeks before the draft

Miller was always a top prospect, and based on what Xanders and Elway said he was always their top choice

It wasnt like all of a sudden their was a shift from Dareus of Fairley like ESPN makes it sound like

Hopefully he can have a Suh like impact for us

I'm very high on Von. I think he will become a keystone player for this franchise, Al Wilson style.

Im thinking more like a hybrid of mobley/fletcher with better numbers. Al Wilsons leadership was top notch, if Von can fill that role too, all the better.
