Default ESPN ranks the rookies: Von Miller #1

1. Von Miller, Broncos LB (first round, No. 2)
Miller is the best rookie in the NFL right now, and the competition isn't even close. He continued to shine last week against the Titans.

2. Cam Newton, Panthers QB (first round, No. 1)
In awful weather conditions, his numbers did not approach what he did in his first two starts, but Newton earned his first win as a starting quarterback. Newton also is already proving to be an excellent deep passer, and Carolina has made its running game an afterthought.

3. Denarius Moore, Raiders WR (fifth round, No. 148)
Moore often did battle with Darrelle Revis on Sunday. But he still found a way to make his presence felt with a run for a touchdown late in the game on a reverse. This guy is a big-time playmaker.

I'm pretty shocked Cam Newton is doing this well.

Props to Von (and the Raider WR).

Von has been doing a great job for you guys, but Ryan Kerrigan has made a bigger impact than any rookie on defense.

12 tackles, 2 sacks, an INT return for a TD, 3 passes defended and a forced fumble. The guy is everywhere.

Von gets all the spotlight and will probably win DROY, but right now Kerrigan has done the most for his team.

Dont know why Kerrigan and Dareus aren't ranked higher but it seems like its a 100% opinion piece

Actually about same numbers except for the pick 6. Miller getting a lot of props because hes constantly beating the guy in front of him and disrupting plays. Those don't show up in the stat line.

Too bad your first round pick is a bust.

Von's been great but Kerrigan deserves a mention. He's a monster across from Orakpo.

Miller is already getting double teamed occasionally.

Its a shame that we havent had anyone else out there who can take advantage of that.

It makes me cringe seeing Kerrigan do so well. Before there was any mention of trading up for Julio, Kerrigan was the one I wanted to trade for. I have no regrets about having Julio on the team, but it's always nice to be right about a draft prospect you're dead set on.

To be fair, he gets to play across Orakpo. He also has one FF more than Kerrigan. Just wait until Doom is back and healthy. Don't you think that would only improve Miller's numbers? What would Kerrigan be at if he didn't have Orakpo atm.

I agree Kerrigan should get more mention though. Definitely #3. Raider's WR gets mention because he has preseason hype and was a low-round pick.

I've only been able to see the MNF game, can someone tell me how Miller is being used? How often does he have his hand in the dirt?

He rarely plays in a 3 point stance.

Von Miller is being used as a badass. They tell him to go be a badass over here, and then the next play be a badass over there, etc.

And his 9 receptions for 180 yards for an average of 20 yards per touch plus his 48 yards rushing and his Rookie of the Week honors.

Kerrigan is doing very well in the 3-4. If Miller was in a 3-4 he'd be a beast as well. Von hasn't had Elvis opposite him like Kerrigan with Orakpo

2 force fumbles by Miller should have been good enough to win both games Denver has lost. He (and 2 offside penalties) single handily handed Denver the game on Sunday and the offense as usaul found a way to lose

Congrats to Von but I certainly think this list is silly.

Kerrigan's had an amazing start to the season and even batted a ball to himself and ran it for a TD along with his FF, PDs, sacks and tackles and they have him at 7...?

And how is Moore over AJ Green?

Etc

Let's hope Von brings home DROY or even ROY (though media is super QB biased), so we have something (else?) to celebrate and look forward to more of!
