When one of the best defensive players of the last decade in the NFL has high praise for someone, you know that player must be special.

During Von Miller’s pass rush summit, the MVP of Super Bowl 50 had some pretty eye-opening words to say about Raiders defensive end, Maxx Crosby.

“He’s a great guy for the Raiders. He’s a franchise guy. I’m a huge fan of his game and it’s a true blessing to get him.”

Crosby has been a pleasant surprise after being selected in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Through two seasons, he’s totaled 86 tackles with 17 sacks and 30 tackles for loss. He’s also added 27 QB hits as well.

Crosby, still only 23 years old, continues to show signs of becoming the next dominant pass rusher in the league. Again, when you have a future Hall of Famer calling someone a “franchise player,” he might know a thing or two.
