After running a blistering 40 time at Texas A&M’s Pro Day, linebacker Von Miller said he’d love to go ninth overall in the draft to the Dallas Cowboys. But Miller hasn’t heard much from the Cowboys.
“I always saw myself with a blue star on the side of my helmet,” Miller said on 103.3 KESN, per the Dallas Morning News. “Growing up in Dallas, all my life I’ve never ever lived anywhere else. So of course I’m a big Cowboys fan. Our game room at my house is fully dedicated to the Cowboys. From Roger Staubach to Troy Aikman to Emmitt Smith to Michael Irvin, all those guys. We’ve got a Ring of Honor just in our game room at home.”
Miller, however, said he was disappointed when he didn’t get a chance to talk to anyone with the Cowboys at the NFL Scouting Combine.
“Not at the Combine,” Miller said. “I was kind of bummed out that I didn’t get an interview from the Cowboys. I kind of hovered around their suite, and whenever they got free time in between college guys, guys they were meeting with, I’d kind of go in there and kind of talk to the scouts and try to pull [Jason] Garrett aside and [Rob] Ryan and see if I could get a little session with them, a two-minute thing where I could talk to them. I was trying my hardest to meet with all those guys, but they told me they have like a hometown [day].”
The good news for Miller is that there’s a good chance he won’t be on the board when the ninth pick comes up anyway.
