Texas A&M’s Von Miller blazes to 4.49 in 40

Published on March 9, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

 

Highly-rated draft prospect Von Miller actually found a way to improve upon his already impressive showing at the NFL Scouting Combine by clocking in at 4.49 seconds in the first of his two 40-yard dashes at Texas A&M’s pro day on Wednesday.

That topped Miller’s time in Indianapolis last month by four-hundreths of a second. The 6-foot-2 7/8, 244-pound linebacker didn’t jump or lift on Wednesday, but ran the short shuttle (4.07 seconds, .01 off his combine clocking) and three-cone drill (6.87, .17 off his combine time) and went through a positional workout with Browns linebackers coach Bill Davis.

Miller proved that he is an athletic machine and solidified his position as a top-10 pick.

The Aggies held their pro day indoors on FieldTurf in front of representatives from 11 NFL teams, including the Bengals, who sent defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, and the Texans, who had three coaches present.

Quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who stood on his combine numbers, impressed during a positional workout run by Texans QB coach Greg Knapp.

A third Aggie of note who worked out was defensive tackle Lucas Patterson, who was not invited to the combine.

Patterson (6-foot-4 1/8, 293) posted times of 5.10 and 5.15 in the 40, clocked 4.40 in the short shuttle and 7.52 in the 3-cone drill. He lifted 32 reps of 225 pounds and had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump to go with an 8-foot, 6-inch broad jump.
