    Jarvis Jones: Is he more Von Miller or Bruce Irvin?

    I've heard some prognosticators compare Jarvis Jones to both Von Miller and Bruce Irvin.

    Bruce Irvin played in pass rushing situations for the Seahawks as a rookie and posted 8 sacks. So which is it? Is Jones more Von Miller or Bruce Irvin?

    Irvin right now. Miller is a more complete LB.

    I've heard some people say Von Miller or Ware the way they get a jump on the snap. I've heard others say he looks more like Clay Matthews which isn't bad either. Then I heard someone on NFLN comparing him to Chris Clemons whos a DE in Seattle.

    I'm not sure who he compares to. He also reminds me of James the way he goes after the ball. He's a little different than everyone. I think he'll be unique. Some guys are a lot stronger, play with better leverage, have more of a burst, etc.

    I think the thing that will set Jarvis apart is being relentless and opportunistic. He seems to play smart. And I think he'll have to leverage that in the NFL.

    A more pertinent question might be, "Is he more James Harrison or Chris Carter?"

    He is way too small to compare to Alonzo Mourning.

    He's Jarvis.

    He lacks the top end Speed Miller had, Miller had a bit more production in college however, they played in different conferences.

    My personal view.

    He isn't a Von Miller Clone, IMO they both show a good edge rush, however....

    Von Miller is more the Athlete, Jarvis is more a high motor guy/ beat you by reading the blocking shemes.

    Jarvis, if anyone reminds me of James.
