With 18.5 sacks in 2012, Von Miller was just four sacks short of Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record.
“Sacks are good. They’re always good, but for me, I want to be more well-rounded,” Miller told the guys on CBS’ ‘Inside the Super Bowl.’ ”I’m not saying that I wasn’t well-rounded this year or the year before, but I want to become the linebacker that the Denver Broncos brought me in to be…and just start to accept that leadership role, and start to become that Ray Lewis, all of the big-time linebackers that we have here in the National Football League.”
In addition to being the league’s third-leading sack man, Miller added 55 tackles, 6 forced fumbles, and one pick-6, which were improvements from his rookie season (11.5 sacks, 50 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, and no picks).
Now entering his third year in the league (where has the time gone?), everyone is looking for Miller to improve once again because there’s no limit to how good this guy can be.
With the NFL combine coming up in a few weeks, I thought we could take a look at a brief clip of Miller’s combine performance. It begins at 1:54.
