Explanation of Player Grading System

The Breakdown

If you’re a fan of an NFL team that runs a 3-4 defense, Von Miller is a player you want to keep your eye on this season. Miller is your prototypical 3-4 outside linebacker. Quick off the edge, Miller led the nation with 17 sacks his junior season and he’ll look to build off that momentum. Miller needs to further develop his game against the rush and in coverage, but he has the athletic ability to do that. However, the NFL loves pass rushers and if a raw talent with ultra-limited experience like Jason Pierre-Paul can make it in the first round of the draft, Miller should be highly coveted.
