Von Miller is the Best Pass Rusher in the NFL Today By a Wide Margin

Given the nature of today’s pass-happy NFL, it should come as no surprise that pass rushers are the second-most valued position in the league behind quarterbacks. As we learned during the Denver Broncos run to the Super Bowl 50 title, a dominant pass rush can be the only way to slow down a quarterback like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, or Ben Roethlisberger. Here is a look at the 10 best pass rushers in the NFL today.

10. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, Houston Texans

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft may not have the same type of eye-popping sack totals as other players on this list. But make no mistake about it, Jadeveon Clowney is one of the most disruptive pass-rushers in the NFL today.

Clowney’s physical attributes are undeniable. At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, the former South Carolina Gamecock has wide receiver-caliber speed and quickness. And the sky is the limit for the 2016 second-team All-Pro now that he is finally healthy. With Clowney and J.J. Watt coming off the edges, the Texans will make life miserable for opposing quarterbacks in 2017.
