It's Miller Time

Posted Jul 28, 2011

No. 2 overall pick Von Miller signed with the team Thursday afternoon.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The rookie signings continue to roll in for Denver, as the club announced that No. 2 overall pick Von Miller has signed with the team.

In addition, the team inked second-round selection Orlando Franklin before the start of the first training camp practice. Franklin, a two-time All-ACC honoree at Miami, proceeded to work with the first-unit offensive line at right tackle.

Fourth-rounder Quinton Carter signed with the team Thursday morning, but not in time to participate in the morning practice session.

The announcements come a day after signing Julius Thomas, Mike Mohamed, Virgil Green and Jeremy Beal, meaning the Broncos are three players away -- second-round pick Rahim Moore and third-round pick Nate Irving -- from locking up their entire 2011 NFL Draft class.

Miller said Tuesday he had every intention of getting into camp quickly, because "I don't want to put myself any more behind than I already am."

Now, presumably the rookie will be out on the field for the club's afternoon practice session today, mere hours after his signing.

Miller, the 2010 Butkus Award winner as the nation's top linebacker, accumulated 182 tackles, 50.5 tackles for loss, 10 forced fumbles, an interception and -- most notably -- 33 sacks in his career at Texas A&M.

The rookie considers his ability to get to the quarterback one of his strengths, and Elvis Dumervil said Wednesday he can't wait to see it in person.

“I’m excited," Dumervil said. "I’ve never had a sack guy opposite of me in high school or college or the NFL. Von is a natural pass rusher. He has great lean. One thing you can’t coach is a great motor. So you combine those things and I’m really excited for him because we have a great staff to put him in the right position. They can help him; I can help him. He can help me. I’m looking towards the future and ready to get it rolling.”
