Von Miller will attend the NFL Draft

There is now no excuse for any invited rookie not to attend the 2011 NFL Draft. After all, Von Miller, the only rookie plaintiff in the players’ lawsuit against the owners, will be at Radio City Music Hall.

"I'm honored to get an invitation and I plan on being there," Miller said via ESPN.com. "It's always been a dream of mine, having my name called and being able to walk across the stage and shake the hand of the commissioner."

That’s the same commissioner that Miller’s soon-to-be union/trade association has been publicly censuring the past few weeks. Miller will be in St. Paul next Thursday to attend the NFL hearing before Judge Susan Nelson in U.S. District Court.

The one DeMaurice Smith called “a brave young Aggie” did not express any concern about whether his presence at April’s draft will ruffle the feathers of his future peers.

"It doesn't change my stance with current NFL players," Miller said. "This is just separating the personal from the business. Personally, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fulfill a dream that my mom and dad, myself and my family can enjoy a very emotional day. But I still plan on being there for the players in trying to get this lockout lifted."

The entire idea of boycotting the draft was a stupid idea to begin with. It did nothing but hurt the "union". I've just been waiting for the idea to boycott the HOF enshrinement. At least that would involve players who were in the union, and still have a stake in retirement on union issues. Somehow I don't think they would have the guts to ask the enshrinees to forego a "once in a lifetime".

Good for him, it's not right and fair for the current players to sit there and tell the incoming players not to show at the draft. You only get drafted once, the current players got to expierence it, its only fair for the future ones to expierence it also. I hope they all show up.

Most of the players are okay with him going.  However; Drew Brees' mole is not happy at all.  In an interview with sports illustrated the mole voiced some serious frustration in the college players looking to get some limelight.

CBS "Writers" really need to get NFL Network so they can "write" same day stories.
