Von Miller scheduled to visit Valley Ranch
By Calvin Watkins
Texas A&M and Carrollton native Von Miller is scheduled to visit Valley Ranch on April 15.
The outside linebacker is projected as a top-five pick but the Cowboys, who have the ninth pick of the first round, are doing their due diligence when it comes to elite players such as Miller.
The team would also like to speak with USC tackle Tyron Smithand Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara, two players that several mock drafts have the Cowboys taking, but visits with those players have not been finalized.
Miller will visit Valley Ranch during Dallas Day, which is held for area players. Last year, Dez Bryant, a Lufkin, Texas, native, visited Valley Ranch during Dallas Day and had dinner at the Gaylord Texan.
The Cowboys are also allowed to have 30 visits with players from outside of the area. This is where players such as Smith and Amukamara come in.
