One of the most iconic defenders in Denver Broncos' history, Von Miller has built a Hall of Fame-caliber in just nine seasons in Mile High. A seven-time Pro Bowler, three-time First Team All-Pro member and the Broncos' all-time leader in career sacks (106.0), Miller has been an absolute force since entering the league in 2011.

But a quick look at Miller's high school highlight tape reveals he's always been a special talent.

Miller was a well-rounded athlete, participating in track & field in addition to his time on the gridiron. Despite racking up a combined 13.0 sacks over his final two seasons at DeSoto High School in Texas, Miller was only a 3-star recruit, according to 247 Sports.

He would go onto join Texas A&M, where he took a few years to break through, racking up 5.5 sacks through his first two seasons. But once he did, he never looked back. Over his final two collegiate seasons, Miller would rack up a combined 39.0 tackles for loss and 27.5 sacks.

He entered the 2011 NFL Draft as one of the finest pass-rushing prospects of the last decade, ultimately landing with the Broncos at No. 2 overall. He was special from the moment he set foot on an NFL field, earning First-Team All-Pro honors as a rookie in 2011, though the highlight of his career is undoubtedly his Super Bowl-MVP performance in 2015.
