Thread: Bruce Miller - OLB

    Bruce Miller - OLB

    Saw this guy mentioned on the ESPN draft site....seems like a good mid round player if we dont get an OLB early on in the draft. Speed and good sack numbers in his career with experience playing DE. Anyone have more info? Was he at the senior bowl?

    Central Florida OLB Bruce Miller
    Miller (6-1, 259) played with his hand down at UCF but his best fit in the NFL appears to be at outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. His athleticism was better than expected during film study and Miller is a speed-to-power rusher with a quick first step and the active hands to keep blockers off his frame. He can shave the corner and has a nonstop motor, and his 35.5 career sacks are the most for any FBS player who suited up in 2010.

    Miller is athletic enough to drop into zone coverage, and his character and work ethic are impressive as well. The Washington Redskins finished with only 29 sacks last season and need a pass rusher to complement Brian Orakpo, making Miller an intriguing option should he be available in the fifth round.

    i love this prospect but he reminds me of other prospects I've loved like Nick Reed who start out as pure special teamers or Garrett MacIntyre who had to take his game to canada for a couple years. He's a great football player who works hard but get him in shorts it's not that impressive.

    he was at the Shrine Game and solely lined up at DE....definitely the kind of guy that Rex Ryan would love....problem is if he does not get a free shot at the ball handler/QB he's easily neutralized or taken from the action...

    I'd rather the Jets get a true OLB that has to bulk up than a DE that has to learn how to play with both hands at his sides.
