Von Miller hosts “pass rush summit” at Stanford

The 49ers hope that first-round pick Solomon Thomas can be a disruptive presence on their defensive line and he spent time Thursday working out with and talking to players who can offer him some good advice about how to meet that goal.

Broncos linebacker Von Miller organized a “pass rush summit” at Thomas’ alma mater Stanford on Thursday and the guest list was a pretty strong one. Miller was joined by his successor as defensive player of the year Khalil Mack, 2016 NFL sacks leader Vic Beasley, Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril and the recently retired DeMarcus Ware.

Broncos linebacker Shane Ray, Jaguars defensive tackle Malik Jackson, Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford and Seahawks linebacker Cassius Marsh were also on hand to hone their skills and pick up pointers from what Miller said, via the Denver Post, is a “little fraternity” of pass rushers around the league.

The meeting of the pass rushing minds wasn’t the first time that Thomas has worked out with Ware and stealing a few tricks from all the veterans he met on Thursday should help Thomas make up for being barred from offseason work due to the NFL rule requiring school to be out before rookies can practice.

    Mack can teach them to workout everyday.

    Miller can teach them how to pass a drug test.

    It’s good that Miller was honest in calling it a “pass rush summit” because Von certainly doesn’t know much about run defense. On the other hand, Khalil Mack is an excellent all-around defender so maybe he can give Miller a few pointers.

    Back when Clinton was in office, he consudered making it an official cabinet position.

    Thank you attending, and if you take only thing away from this weekend it’s preparation – make sure you fart in the locker room and then you won’t embarrass yourself when you do your pelvic-thrust dance on the field.

    It’s interesting that Stanford is so close to Burlingame.

    Araidersfan- i know you haven’t been watching much football the last 10 years but von miller is an amazing run defender. He ranks as one of the best at his position every single year.

    tylawspick6, you’re a broken record. It’s no wonder Patriots fans have a well-deserved reputation as the worst fans in all of sports.

    Should have brought Jed York and Paraag out there to serve as tackling dummies. Thousands of fans would have attended, could have raised millions for charity.

    —————-

    Mack could potentially be a great layer……Miller already is a great player with a SB win under his belt. Come back when Mack and the Raiders actually win a SB…..or even a single playoff game.

    Miller’s first idea was to name it a “flatulence summit” but it wasnt as catchy.
