2011 Senior Bowl: Von Miller Has Kind Words For Buffalo

Easily the best 2011 NFL Draft prospect on the Senior Bowl's south squad - coached by Chan Gailey and the Buffalo Bills this week - is Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller. The senior's draft stock has soared this week as he has gotten positive reviews for not just his athleticism - which helped him emerge as one of college football's best pass rushers over the last two years - but for his ability to drop into coverage.

Miller has spent the entire week with Gailey and Buffalo's defensive coaching staff. Reporters asked him how he believes he'd fit in Buffalo's 3-4 defense.

"It would be a true blessing to go play for the Bills, but whatever team picks me up, I'll be happy to play for them," Miller said.

He also had high praise for Buffalo's coaching staff when asked if he found it odd that he'd spent his week working at linebacker, rather than as a pass rusher.

""I came here to play linebacker," Miller said. "Whatever they wanted me to do, this is why I came here. I came here to receive excellent coaching from the Bills coaching staff. If they want me to rush the passer, I'll get down there and rush the passer. If they want me to drop into coverage, that's what I'll do. I'm not here to hide anything or show anything. I'm here to compete."
