1. Von Miller
Von Miller has been a one-man wrecking crew off the edge for the Denver Broncos since they drafted him No. 2 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Miller has been nothing short of elite, posting 10+ sacks in every season of his career but one. In 2013, Miller was suspended for six games after violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
The Titans have been in violation of not generating a pass-rush for years, and if I could suspend them, I would. Miller would be an instant upgrade to, well, everyone on the roster. That includes a promising second-year pro in OLB Harold Landry, and one of the best pressure-generators (when healthy) in the league, OLB Cameron Wake.
Unless the Broncos want to continue to pay Miller $17 million-plus a year for the next couple, they would be smart to try and move him. Sure, the Broncos could just cut him—they have a potential out in his contract in 2020, but it would be prudent of GM John Elway to trade Miller.
The former Texas A&M product has only two sacks on the year thus far, but the game script has been different. Teams are running the ball on the Broncos, rarely playing from behind. Miller has been most successful when the Broncos play from a lead, and he can pin his ears back and get after the quarterback.
All this to say, Miller is one year removed from a 14.5 sack season. He hasn’t lost a step — he’s just on a completely different team than he once was.
