2011 NFL Mock Draft: Expect A Lot Of Von Miller To Buffalo

With the 2011 NFL Combine officially in the books, this week's NFL Mock Draft at SBNation.com was delayed to account for Tuesday's final workouts. Hence this post: I've made significant changes to the look of round one, including the player I've projected to the Buffalo Bills with the third overall pick.

After the workout he put in at Lucas Oil Stadium this weekend, there's absolutely no question that Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller is a Top 10 pick, and very easily could be taken in the first five slots. I've got him going to Buffalo in this mock draft.

Miller was not my first choice for the selection (and given that there were only two players off the board, you'll have a pretty ironclad idea of my thought process), but he makes a great deal of sense for Buffalo at this juncture. The Bills lack athleticism and range at linebacker, not to mention the ability to pressure the quarterback. Miller gives them all of that, plus leadership qualities and intangibles. He's one of my very favorite prospects available this year, and I'm not ashamed to admit that.

Who would you have taken for the Bills in this scenario?
