2011 NFL Draft: Von Miller Has A Harsh Critic

New, comments

Ever since his strong showing in the Senior Bowl, Texas A&M outside linebacker Von Miller has been viewed as one of the best, and safest, 2011 NFL Draft prospects out there. You don't need to venture any further than a comments section right here to know that Miller has his detractors, but that movement was taken to new heights on Tuesday when a former NFL scout invoked the name of Vernon Gholston.

"He's got some Vernon Gholston in him," said Dave Razzanno to CSNBayArea.com, the former scout in question that spent two decades scouting players for three different NFC West teams.

"I'm not a big Von Miller fan," Razzano continued. "In looking at Big-12 tape, he does not have a motor. He doesn't chase hard. They run at him, and he doesn't fight off blockers. When he gets sacks, a lot of times he's not getting blocked. He's a one-move guy."

Razzano went on to tout the likes of Robert Quinn, Da'Quan Bowers, Patrick Peterson and Adrian Clayborn, while conveying a cool attitude toward both Miller and Prince Amukamara.
