Von Miller Headlines Broncos' Top-10 LB Group In SB Nation's Rankings

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is undoubtedly the star of the defensive unit, but he's not the only playmaker among the LB corps. Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation recently ranked the linebacker units around the NFL, and he determined that the sneaky depth on the Broncos is enough to make them the No. 7 LB group in the league:

If you forgot that Denver had other linebackers besides Von Miller, you can be forgiven. His first season in the NFL was incredible. Joe Mays is an underrated two-down player on the inside. Nate Irving's range should get him more playing time this season. D.J. Williams' pending suspension and his playbook gaffe make you wonder about his long-term future with the team.

As for the the rest of the AFC West, only the Kansas City Chiefs (No. 6) earned a higher ranking. The San Diego Chargers dropped in at No. 13, while the Oakland Raiders earned a No. 30 overall designation.
