2011 NFL Draft: Von Miller Figures To Go In The First Three Picks

There will be 32 new NFL players by the time the first round of the NFL Draft is finished on Thursday. Von Miller projects to be one of the first few names called by commissioner Roger Goodell. SB Nation just came out with the latest, and final, edition of their 2011 NFL Mock Draft, and they Von Miller in what has become a pretty familiar situation for him; third overall to the Buffalo Bills.

It's possible that the Bills talk themselves into taking Blaine Gabbert at the last minute. If they don't, Miller is the front-runner, with Newton and Dareus on their radar.

There have also been some rumblings about Miller going second overall to the Denver Broncos. He might even be the target of teams trying to trade up if the Broncos are willing to trade down. No matter who is picking in those spots, Miller will in all likelihood be one of the first three names called on Thursday.

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 28, and SB Nation has everything you need to prepare: NFL mock drafts, draft projections, scouting reports, the full NFL draft schedule and more. Check it out at SB Nation's NFL Draft page and our NFL Draft blog, Mocking the Draft.
