The accolades continue to pour in for Denver Broncos rookie sensation Von Miller — though, in our opinion, this one tops the list to date.

Miller has been named second-team All-Pro by the Associated Press, the Denver Broncos announced.

Miller is the only Bronco on either the first team or second team. Other Broncos to get votes were Chris Kuper (4), Champ Bailey (3), Elvis Dumervil (1), Matt Prater (1) and Britton Colquitt (1). You can see the full All-Pro teams in the link above.

It’s quite a feat for a rookie to make an All-Pro team. Congrats to Miller, who is a top candidate for Defensive Rookie of the Year and can be voted as Rookie of the Year now.
