He was named NFL Rookie of the Month for November and nominated for Pepsi Rookie of the Week 3 times this season. The #2 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Miller had 64 Tackles (50 solo) and started all 15 games he appeared in.

Von is up against QB Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals, QB Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers, CB Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals and LB Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers.
