both beast rookies, similar stats. look more than nfl ready at the minute, and are both incredibly athletic.

who will eventually be the better player in your opinion?

Both will be mediocre in their careers in my opinion.

Well I'm a bit biased and honestly haven't seen much of Denver this year to see how Miller has transitioned but they really are two different animals.

Miller is much more seasoned and ready for the 3-4 OLB and relies more on speed. Aldon is still raw as hell and has ways to go before fully grasping the 3-4 OLB duties but he doesn't rely on speed as much.

I think given their current results I would think Aldon has more room to grow. But I'm not gonna lie I'm sure it helps him playing behind a beast of a DE like Justin Smith.

2 Mizzou Smith's tearing sh*t up.

Very educated and valuable opinion.

Von Miller got benched because he wasn't setting the edge and kept opening up running lanes. With that being said, I believe Aldon Smith will be the better overall player. They will both be double digit sack players though imo.
