The video linked above is pretty cool to watch, because Miller is on his way to becoming a first ballot Hall of Famer - a rare feat for a Bronco. Philip Rivers of the Los Angeles Chargers is a quarterback Von has sacked the most and, naturally, he had a few things to say about Von in this vote.
“He’s not just a pass rusher,” Rivers said of Miller. “He is a football player. He’ll go down one day as one of the best defensive players ever to play.”
There is no disagreement here.
While I personally felt annoyed at the other two Broncos rankings on this list, with Chris Harris Jr. (#63) and Aqib Talib (#37) being ranked below many other cornerbacks on the list despite being the #1 and #2 ranked cornerbacks in the NFL last year according to Pro Football Focus. The No Fly Zone did things that have never been done, but I dealt with that annoyance by ignoring this Top 100 list as a blogger until now.
With Von Miller, they got their rankings right. He and Khalil Mack (#5) were the only defenders to make it into the Top 10. In today’s NFL, that probably makes sense.
Von Miller is about to be #1 on NFL Top 100 and it will immediately validate the list for all of us.— The Orange Page (@theorangepage) June 26, 2017
