    bio seemed interesting. Does anyone have an opinion of this player?


    Julian Miller, DE, West Virginia

    Miller was a productive pass rusher in college, so he definitely could be worth a late-round pick. He had nine sacks with 14 tackles for a loss, 54 tackles, three passes broken up and one forced fumble in 2010. He then was abused by his coaching staff when they moved him to defensive tackle. He was even playing some 3-4 nose tackle despite being 6-3, 256. He still recorded 57 tackles with 11 tackles for a loss, six sacks and two forced fumbles in 2011.

    Miller could be a nice pass-rushing outside linebacker for 3-4 teams to consider. He played well at the East-West Shrine. Miller has nice quickness off the snap and doesn't shy away from getting physical to fight off blockers. He also has a non-stop motor. He is a sleeper prospect who could fall late in the 2012 NFL Draft, but bring a nice reward to the team that gives him a chance.

    They say he battled a high ankle sprain all season. His Pro Day was 3/16/2012. Forty time is really bad unless it was affected by lingering issues with the ankle.

    Hand 9
    Arm 34
    Wing 81-3/4"

    How would his SS and Cone rate on your pass rushing grid of top players by the way?

    He was a productive player for WVU. Often overshadowed by Irvin, but a lot of the time he had more of an impact. One of those players who plays faster than his 40 time. Not sure how he would transition to OLB though. He has a good motor and would often play hurt. I think he would be a good special teams guy right off the bat. I wouldn't mind him in the 5th or later.

    Good question. Here is the chart with Miller added. There are 3 copies sorted by forty, ss, and cone.
