Since he arrived in the NFL, Von Miller has been bringing the heat on quarterbacks. Pro Football Focus says he is the best when it comes to pass rushing.
Von MIller has become quite the iconic face when we think about linebackers today. His ability to get to the quarterback and provide pressure to the opposing team has been noticed.
All you need to do is look at the games that the Denver Broncos were in when it was crunch time and you can see how much of a difference maker he is.
His best performance came in Super Bowl 50, where he forced two fumbles. One fumble resulted in a touchdown and the other one helped close out a championship season.
His biggest performance last season came in Week Two against the Colts. He forced a fumble on Andrew Luck that resulted in a Shane Ray scoop and score that put the game away.
