Miller the AP NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year

Von Miller has been named the 2011 Associated Press NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Selected with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M, Miller recorded 64 tackles and 11.5 quarterback sacks for the Broncos this season. Miller missed one game with a broken thumb that limited him in the final month of the season, but he still earned Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors.

Miller received 39 of the 50 votes. San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith, the seventh overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, received 11 votes.
