Denver Broncos first round draft pick Von Miller is the odds-on favorite to win the 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of they Year award, says linesmaker Bodog.com. The 2nd overall pick of the draft has been given 11/2 odds to win the award.
Following Miller are Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson with 6/1 odds, Bills DT Marcel Dareus with 15/2 odds, and Lions DT Nick Fairley with 15/2 odds.
Rounding out the Top 5 is another Bronco, S Rahim Moore, with 10/1 odds.
The DROY award typically goes to a linebacker, and Miller was the first defensive player taken, so the odds do make sense. (Plus, have you seen Miller in the Preseason?!)
Two Broncos are among the most likely to make a big defensive impact in 2011. Just what the doctor ordered.
