NFL Network continued its countdown of the top 100 players in 2012 last night with another Bronco making the list.
“The type of guy that I am, all that stuff doesn’t matter to me,” Miller said on the show. “It’s all about winning games and the ultimate goal of winning that Lombardi Trophy.”
Miller earned All-Pro, Pro Bowl and Associated Press Defensive Rookie of the Year honors after finishing his first NFL season with 11.5 sacks. He is one of four rookies to make the list.
Tackle Ryan Clady, who has seen plenty of Miller’s ability from practicing against him, joined the show sporting similar frames to Miller’s signature look.
“He’s just such a fast player, it’s tough sometimes to get your hands on him,” Clady said. “He’ll probably be in the Pro Bowl for the rest of his career. He’s one of those types of guys.”
Cornerback Champ Bailey also talked about Miller’s unique skill-set on the show.
“Just that rare athleticism that he has, I think his ability to bend his body and his speed and combination of power and strength – you usually don’t see that in young guys right away,” Bailey said. “It’s just rare to have that kind of speed for his size.”
