AP Source: Texas A & M Miller Is Invited To The NFL Draft

NEW YORK (AP)-University of Texas A & M linebacker Von Miller was invited to the NFL draft, even if a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the league.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Miller is one of 20 players invited to the college April 28 to 30 projects. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the NFL has not announced who he is invited.

Miller won the Butkus award as the top linebacker in the nation and should be a high choice in the first round. It has not yet responded to the invitation, the person said.
Miller ended the March 11 Tom Brady,Peyton Manning,Drew Brees and six other NFL players suing to get an injunction from a court of Minnesota to block a lockout.

Miller's agent, Joby Branion, acts as the first athletes, representatives of business in Irvine, California, where one factor is Andrew Kessler, a son, Jeffrey Kessler. Elder Kessler is an attorney and NFL Players Association in the years directly involved in seeking to ban the players to avoid a lockout.
