Miller has way more burst, but way less size. Quinn relies on his outside move a lot and is very strong, but he's kind of a long-strider (like Lawson heh)...I have no idea...but I think if Miller could bulk up to 250 and keep his burst/athleticism he'd be a monster.

as for me i would take quinn in addition to the perfect size-speed-height-weight ratio hes a beast he works hard and plays and loves the game he also sets and has high goals for himself
thse are the things i like in a player
who would u guys rather see in a niner uniform?
Quinn - over another aaron maybin... he'll be a 4-3 WILL
I won't compare Von to Maybin - but I do believe 4-3 will get the absolute best out of Von Miller. Von Miller reminds me about Julian Peterson and Peterson was a damn good player, but in 4-3. Peterson could still play in 3-4, but wasn't as effective as he was in 4-3.
I think Von Miller is much more powerful than people realize. He has a good build, that could easily put on another 10lbs. Ideally, he could be the next Derrick Thomas, and if not, he'll still be a very good player.
Ideally, Quinn could be like Peppers, but he could also bust pretty bad. I think Von Miller is the safer pick, with just as much if not more upside.
What about Aldon Smith? He lined up EVERYWHERE in college and was a force. Line him up inside, outside, drop him into coverage...dude looks like a beast, and he's got that shiftiness and burst that I worry about Quinn not having.

Agreed. Aldon Smith is my favorite pass rusher in this draft. Might be a smart move to trade down and get him in picks 15-20 .

I don't think character is an issue. Seems just like a case of a young guy being tempted by some luxuries he couldn't afford. Sure he shouldn't have taken agent bribes, but beyond being a stupid decision on his part, it is understandable. Certainly doesn't mean he's a bad kid. If anything, I'd think he'd learned his lesson.
