Bills Scout Shawn Heinlen was asked to compare Bruce Smith’s ability to stay low to the ground and maintain his leverage while rushing the quarterback to Texas A&M LB Von Miller. Here’s what he said, “Von is the same thing but in smaller package. He’s got that same ability to be able to do that where he’s so low to the ground but yet he’s able to maintain his power, his leverage, and his speed and take on the contact from the tackle and continue to progress. It’s a rare trait that I haven’t seen in any linebacker I’ve looked at.”
In his junior and senior seasons with the Aggies, Miller had a combined 27.5 sacks and 39 tackles for loss.
