    I see a lot of people around here want Quinn..Von Miller is basically projected slightly lower than Quinn..what are the differences between the two? Pros and cons for Miller? Would you guys be happy with Miller at 9? I will be honest, I know almost nothing about this guy..surprised he's rated so high..

    Nope Quinn, bigger, faster, possibly another monster at Outside linebacker like Ware.

    Miller is ok, but smaller alittle

    QUINN Robert
    North Carolina
    6- 5.0...265...4.67 -------- 465.24
    Tremendous Test Numbers -Heck of pass rusher -A low lethal power burst.. Brain Surgery as a prep.. 11 Sacks in 09,,

    --MILLER Von

    6- 3.0...248...4.62 -------- 475.76
    Successful College pass rusher, Real Athlete, in a search and destroy position Run ??

    Now, look at Ware's size, and remember Quinn missed this year due to suspension, could be a steal at 9th to 15th pick. Not sure if could play outside linebacker, but I think he can, could push the dog out of spencer too.

    94 WARE Demarcus . 6- 4.0 259 4.62 867.93

    Thanks Joe...I don't think Quinn is available at 9...he could but my gut is saying he won't be. Very early though.

    There are already a dozen players who won't be available at 9. I'm guessing when it's all said and done, one or more of them are.

    i think he will glorydays, why 2 main reasons

    didnt play last year at college, with suspension, big red flag
    2nd, had brain surgery, another red flag

    most players fall due to things like this, remember, that dez didnt have some issues like him, to a degree and dez just like randy moss fell in the draft

    now i do think that quinn will go somewhere around the 15th to 20th pick, to much talent to pass up, but not before the 12th pick or so in 1st round

    Depends who you ask. I have Quinn as a top 5 player..guys like Dareus and Prince could fall to us.

    understand you buddy, von has potential to be a really good linebacker, but i think Quinn could be a monster at DE and in 3-4 outside like charles haley was that put fear in opposing offenses

    I'll be pissed if we don't take Quinn at 9, if he's available.

    i think dareus, prince, possibly peterson and quinn will be there at 9th pick, just a hunch

    i think some teams will really focus on QB
    --LOCKER Jake

    4 --GABBERT Blaine
    MISSOURI
    6- 4.2...236...4.73 -------- 440.98
    Talented, Accurate Short,,, long release, decent runner,,


    i think because some nfl teams have need at QB,
    Bills, 49ers, vikings, redskins
    possibly panthers, they will jump at QB

    this will push players down to us

    Somebody good will. We've got the luxury of having more than one spot to fill. We'll get a top player at a position of need.

    My guess is that, as of right now, Quinn will be there, and we might not take him anyway. Quinn does seem to be a 'riser,' though. He might well end up top-five before it's all said and done.

    Haven't watched a whole lot of Von Miller, but from what little I've seen, he's incredibly quick and just tries to run around the OT every single play.

    So, one trick pony

    von Miller didn't look like 248 pounds when I saw him play in the bowl game. He looked small. Played well but looked small for a LB.

    Von Miller actually compares pretty well to Elvis Dummervil. Both are/were considered too-small, hybrid DE/OLBs.

    I like Miller, and I like him even more cause everyone says he's too small. :)

    248 is small for a OLB. I think he is a legit 248 and I don't think he has room to grow. Miller would be a good addition for Dallas, but not at the #9 pick.

    He's 6'3". He has a lot of room to pack on more pounds.
