As the 2021 NFL season draws near, the Denver Broncos are hoping to find out who the starting quarterback will be.
Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater have been battling for the starting job in camp for the past few weeks. While the team doesn’t know which quarterback will start just yet, there are no questions about a few of the players on the team.
One of those is star pass rusher Von Miller. Sure, he might not be what he once was, but Miller can still be an effective pass rusher at this stage of his career.
After practice on Thursday afternoon, Miller praised the job Drew Lock has done so far in camp. He was also impressed with a handful of other players as well – they all just happen to be from the same school.
“These Ohio State guys can play football,” Miller told reporters after practice.

Miller can only be talking about three former Ohio State players who are currently on the roster – all of whom play on the defensive side of the ball.
The former Aggie has played alongside interior defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones for the past few seasons. Miller said Jones is going to have a “special year” in 2021.
He’s also been impressed with rookie linebackers Baron Browning and Jonathan Cooper.
