The Denver Broncos have seen a plethora of talented players since the merger of the American and National Football Leagues in 1970.

While it may be easy for Broncos Country to explain why a particular quarterback or running back is the best of his generation, this list is here to tackle which Broncos players are the best of all time.

Every Fan host was tasked with ranking top Broncos players’ skillsets to come up with the greatest Broncos roster.

This all-time roster will have a few no-brainers on it, but ultimately the Fan hosts decided who was the best of the best.

Here is the Broncos’ all-time roster at edge.

Top Three:
1. Von Miller
2. DeMarcus Ware
3. Elvis Dumervil

Von Miller

Undoubtably one of the greatest Denver Broncos of all-time, Von Miller was the second-overall pick by the Broncos in 2011.

Miller ranks No. 1 in franchise history for sacks by a Bronco, with 106 total sacks in 135 regular-season games played. He averaged 11.8 sacks per season in his nine years on the field.

Miller holds eight Pro Bowl appearances which is tied for second all-time in Broncos history with Champ Bailey and Steve Atwater. He has won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award, one Super Bowl MVP award and one championship all with Denver.

DeMarcus Ware

The Dallas Cowboys released DeMarcus Ware following the 2013 season and the rest is history with the Denver Broncos.

Ware was a nine-time Pro Bowler, four-time First-Team All-Pro, three-time All-Pro Second Team, a two-time Butkus Award honoree as a professional, and named to the NFL 2000’s All-Decade Team.

In his three seasons in Denver, Ware won Super Bowl 50 against the Panthers where he recorded five tackles and two sacks. He played in 178 career games posting 654 tackles (501 solo tackles) 138.5 quarterback sacks, 35 forced fumbles and three interceptions.

Elvis Dumervil

Elvis Dumervil was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft with the 126th-overall pick.

Over seven seasons Dumervil racked up 63.5 sacks, including a league-leading 17 in 2009.

Dumervil still ranks eighth in franchise history in sacks and is second in most sacks in a single season, with the aforementioned 17. He also is one of six Broncos to record four sacks in a single game, a franchise record.
