Butkus Award: Von Miller Takes Home Honors

Texas A&M’s Von Miller has won the Butkus Award as college football’s best linebacker.

Miller finished the regular season with 59 tackles, 34 solo, forced three fumbles and recovered two, and was defensive captain for the 9-3 Aggies, who earned a postseason trip to the Cotton Bowl. He led the Big 12 in sacks for the second straight season with 9½.

One of the fastest linebackers in the country (estimated 4.55 forty-time), Miller is currently ranked as the No. 2 outside linebacker according to the NFL Draft Bible Big Board, which includes draft-eligible underclassmen.
