The Associated Press voted Von Miller as the Defensive Rookie of the Year and announced this honor at the NFL Honors awards show held in Indianapolis in advance of the Superbowl.

Von Miller tallied 11.5 sacks and was an absolute terror to opposing quarterbacks. If he hadn’t broken his thumb at game 11, he likely could have beaten rookie records for sack totals.

BroncoTalk heartily congratulates #58 Von Miller for receiving this award!

    Not too shabby for the very first draft pick in the EFX era.

    Congrats Von.

    Lets hope he doesn’t turn out like the last Denver player to win the award!
