Mel Kiper Mock Draft 1.0: Titans and Texas A&M OLB Von Miller

Mel Kiper has put out his first mock draft of the draft season (In$ider) and he has the Titans taking Texas A&M OLB Von Miller. My problem with this pick is that he would have to play defensive end in the 4-3, and I don't see the Titans spending a second consecutive third first round pick on a defensive end (especially with no one to coach him). I would be all of the pick if the Titans thought he could play linebacker for them, but I haven't seen anyone project him as a 4-3 linebacker.

Here is what Kiper had to say about him:

Miller has the reputation of a big-time sack artist but his game is more diversified than he gets credit for. What Miller brings in Week 1 is a great third-down option. A gifted edge-rusher, he can get to the quarterback, but you can also mix it up and drop him into zone coverage, where he has speed and developing awareness at the position. A solid tackler, Miller will only get better in the 4-3 system as he adjusts to the NFL game.

A lot of you Big 12 people have seen more out of Miller than I have. What do you think about this pick?
