2011 NFL Mock Draft: Texas A&M Linebacker Von Miller Visting The Browns

Texas A&M linebacker and pass rush specialist Von Miller has shot up draft boards this offseason with strong performances at Al--Star games and the Combine. He is now seen as nearly a lock to go in the top ten. The Browns at No. 6 have some interest in Miller and will host him in Cleveland on Monday and Tuesday, according to James Walker at ESPN.com. Here is what ESPN's Mel Kiper has to say about Miller.

"He led the nation in sacks two years ago and would have this year had he not had the ankle injury early on. Then you think about leverage coming off the edge. The kid gets like a motorcycle driver coming around the corner. You wonder how some of those guys can stay on the bike on motocross and this guy is the same way. He comes around that edge and I don't even know how he stays on his feet. He gets this tremendous leverage on those big tackles and they just can't handle him."

Miller would be the kind of playmaking linebacker one would hope to get with a top ten pick. We'll have more details on Miller's visit when and if they become available.
