Rick Gosselin's All-NFL Team 2012 Includes Chris Kuper, Von Miller

The Denver Broncos' Chris Kuper and Von Miller were named to Rick Gosselin's 2012 All NFL Team.

The Associated Press end-of-season awards for the NFL will be some time in coming out, but Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News, one of the most respected NFL writers, has released his 2012 All-NFL team. For two Denver Broncos, Chris Kuper and Von Miller, this means plenty of praise.

Kuper, a guard who was broke his leg and dislocated his ankle, and linebacker Von Miller each made Gosselin's team at their respective positions:

Guard - Chris Kuper, Denver. Best blocker in NFL’s best rushing attack.

Strongside linebacker - Von Miller, Denver. Defense and a running game allowed Tim Tebow to succeed at quarterback and Miller was a rookie leader on that defense with a team-best 11 ½ sacks.

Kuper is out for the playoffs as a result of that injury while Von Miller continues to play with a cast on his right thumb. That injury slowed Miller down and prevented him from challenging the NFL rookie sack record over the final weeks of the season.

To go along with this honor, Miller also received Gosselin's defensive rookie of the year award. He might not receive the national award since Aldon Smith played impressively and had 14 sacks for the San Francisco 49ers.
