Phila @ Detroit: Walt, your betting against yourself. You've dumped on Sanchez all year and said in your write-up, "If it's Sanchez again, it'll be a non-play for me..." You also said the line move was an overreaction. It was actually a massive under-reaction. Phila is playing very poorly, especially CB Byron Maxwell. Add lots of internal problems and the line movement was totally justified.
Summary: Von Miller doesn't have the size you look for, but he gets the most out of his abilities
and has an extremely high level of athleticism. With the 3-4 scheme in the NFL now, you don't
need to be 6-4, 255 pounds to play outside linebacker. All you need is a great first step and elite
speed, and Miller brings both to the table. I have a first-round grade on Miller going into the season
and I expect him to have a big senior year and end up being a first-round pick.
Player Comparison: Elvis Dumervil. Dumervil and Miller are both undersized, but
they are tremendously athletic and wreak havoc on quarterbacks at the rush linebacker position.
