In a recent piece I put out, I set about ranking the Raiders players 1 thru 25. Topping that list was, of course, elite tight end Darren Waller. Who was next in line? Why, edge rusher Maxx Crosby, of course.

For anyone who may have questioned that ranking, Von Miller would like a word. The future Hall of Famer attended a pass rushing summit in Las Vegas this weekend. A few Raiders players attended the event, including Crosby. Miller had some high praise for the third-year edge rusher.

When a player with the array of pass rush moves that Von Miller possesses says he’s learned some things from you, that’s one hell of a compliment. Calling Crosby a “franchise guy” is appropriate as well as he’s undoubtedly the Raiders’ best defender and took that spot as a rookie.

Crosby became a full time starter midway through his rookie season and finished with ten sacks. He followed that up with seven sacks in his second season, while his tackle for loss and QB hit numbers were almost identical to his first season. He’s the real deal. Miller sees it too.
