Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller came out and did exactly what was expected of him on Monday at the NFL Combine, flashing impressive physical skills and supreme athleticism. Miller has continued to impress since the season ended, putting together a standout performance at the Senior Bowl and breezing through the workouts at the combine, pushing his draft stock higher and higher. Almost assuredly a top-10 pick, Miller may slide into the top-five after his solid, if not spectacular workouts.
Miller was in a class of his own on Monday, running the second-fastest 40 time and fastest three cone drill time. When it came to measuring explosiveness, Miller was at the top of the class again with the farthest broad jump and one of the highest vertical jump in the linebacker class.
Here’s the full results of the broad jump
Von Miller 10’6
Justin Houston 10’5
Martez Wilson 10’4
Akeem Dent 10’3
Douglas Hogue 10’1
Scott Lutrus 10’1
And here’s the top performers in the vertical jump.
Scott Lutrus 38.0
Akeem Dent 37.5
Von Miller 37.0
Justin Houston 36.5
Colin McCarthy 36.5
Miller was, by far, the best of the bunch, but Lutrus showed off some impressive physical skills, turning in a quick 40-yard dash and shuttle run, in addition to his jumping marks. But in the class of 2011, it’s Miller and everyone else at the linebacker spot, and he showed why on Monday.
