    This guy seemed to mess up every drill he ran. I can not believe the excuses Mayock kept making for him. He has the stats and maybe the skills but he kept stumbling and his foot work did not impress me. I sure hope he goes top 10.

    interesting b/c that's contradictory to every single thing i heard about this kid in the combine & the senior bowl for that matter.

    Agree. Heard he may have been a little upright at times but overall he smoked it and kept his stock soaring.

    Maybe Mayock has seen a lot of film on him and knows better, no?

    Additionally, who really cares for Combine drills anyway? Other than measurables and interviews, it's all fo sho

    I just hope the Texans find a way to make it happen.

    I'd love to see a quote from you. This sounds ridiculous, and I really don't know where you got your information from.

    I know it is an Aggie source so take it for what it is worth. Here are a few more:

    http://www.revengeofthebirds.com/2011/2/28/2020687/nfl-combine-von-miller-and-robert-quinn-update

    That is far different than what badboy tried to communicate.

    Could you imagine the posibilites of what we could do on Defense if we got this guy?

    Hopefully a good to go Barwin on one side with Miller on the other. Then you have Cushing in the Middle who would seem to be an above avg pass rusher from the MLB position.

    Oh yeah...Mario and Antonio Smith on the D-line...

    Miller would be a good compliment of speed and explosiveness to that front 7.

    Sadly, his performance at the combine means we have no chance of getting him.

    Actually he did have pretty bad footwork at the combine. I watched it. But his numbers were still great because of his freakish athletic ability. This dude is a monster. If he weighed 246 pounds at the combine 200 of it was his legs. If the Texans ever trade up in the draft I hope its for Von Miller.

    This may be the year they do that if Buffalo doesn't take him at #3

    I've had some weird feeling lately that Miller could very well slip to us... and was even thinking of making a mock with him available at 11. I think he's a risky selection, but he's got the work ethic and character that I like. I think he's a guy that is going to do everything he can to be good unlike Gholston and Maybin.

    Seems the guy would love the Cowboys to target him
