2011 NFL Draft: Von Miller Atop Nolan Nawrocki's Big Board

Yesterday, Nolan Nawrocki of Pro Football Weekly - who has been prominent in news cycles this week thanks to his scathing scouting report on Auburn quarterback Cam Newton - released his big board three weeks in advance of the 2011 NFL Draft. The release states that the players are ranked "according to the likelihood of their success in the NFL," and Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller sits atop the list.

Miller earns Nawrocki's top spot in decisive fashion, as well. His 8.5 grade is a full half-point higher than No. 2 on his list, LSU cornerback Patrick Peterson, and he's one of just four players with a grade of seven or higher (joined by A.J. Green and Marcell Dareus). Blaine Gabbert is his highest-ranked quarterback (No. 8), and other potential Buffalo Bills targets include Robert Quinn (No. 6) and Cameron Jordan (No. 13).

As for Newton? Despite the fierce criticism, Nawrocki has Newton rated No. 23 on his board, second on his list of quarterbacks to Gabbert and 11 spots ahead of Washington senior Jake Locker.
