Von Miller finished his senior season at Texas A&M at around 237 pounds. Knowing some NFL clubs with 3-4 defensive schemes want to know he can carry more weight effectively, Miller has been working through the whole pre-draft process to add muscle. First came an additional nine pounds. Now there’s more.
He weighed in at the NFL combine in February at 246 pounds, and didn’t disappoint with respect to speed clocking a 4.53 in the 40.
“Honestly, I didn’t even know I put on that weight,” Miller said at the combine. ”I was just working hard just trying to maximize days, finish all my reps and eating all my food. I was just trying to work out at the best of my ability. I hadn’t weighed myself for about a week and half. I stepped on the scale and it said, ‘246’, I was like, ‘whoa.’ I just want to be the best football player I can be. I just want to get bigger, stronger, faster. And I guess I’m really bigger.”
On Tuesday morning, Miller tweeted his latest weigh in figure.
MillerLite40 Wow! I jus weighed in!!! 250!!!!!!
Miller said he’s been eating like crazy during the pre-draft process, but insists it’s all good weight. His performance at the combine was a testament to that fact.
