Von Miller was the second pick in the 2011 NFL draft.
Cam Newton was the first.
Miller came out on top Sunday and was selected most valuable player of Super Bowl 50 after sacking Newton 21/2 times and forcing two fumbles in the Denver Broncos' 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium.
Miller, an outside linebacker, was forced to sit out the Broncos' 2014 Super Bowl loss against the Seattle Seahawks because of a knee injury.
He made the most of his opportunity against the Panthers, completing a star-turning season in style by leading a defense that recorded seven sacks and intercepted a pass.
