The 2011 NFL Draft will go down as having the best group of pass rushers in NFL history. Much like the 1983 NFL Draft was for quarterbacks, the 2011 class will be for pass rushers.
Headlining the list is the Denver Broncos own Von Miller.

Though he has never won a Defensive Player of the Year award, Von Miller has eclipsed every other pass rusher from that class in three of the four categories Pro Football Focus tracked.
Miller is already a Super Bowl MVP and has earned every penny of the mega deal the Broncos signed him to soon after that championship win. However, it would be nice to see him achieve the ultimate individual award at least one time before he retires.
