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.
No point in trading for Cousins, there's almost no chance he succeeds. 0 WRs and TEs to throw it to, so it would just be a waste of his prime years. If Shanahan reealllly wants him, wait until next year since he seems to have a rift with the Redskins. Besides, next year's quarterback class is much better if they fail to sign Cousins in FA.
I don't agree on a lot. They have so many cuts on the OL you didn't mention including Dunlap and Franklin which will save them 12+ million. Stuckey is not worth 3 million. They can make on very solid move or a couple with draft help to protect Phillip. Cruz could be an interesting pair with Allen if he can return to prior form though.
