Dante Scarnecchia: Von Miller is an "extraordinary talent"

Dante Scarnecchia believes that Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has a similar level of talent to that of Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.

Former New England Patriots offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia believes that Denver Broncos linebacker is an "extraordinary talent".

The 65-year-old, who retired from coaching in the NFL after 32 years in the league, feels that despite his relative young age, the linebacker in Denver has talent similar to that of Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.

"Thirty-two years, it transcends a lot of great players, from Mark Gastineau, when he was at his best, to Lawrence Taylor, when he was at his best," Scarnecchia told the Boston Herald.

"All the way going forward to Von Miller. He's an extraordinary talent. I could name a whole litany of these guys. If I had time, I could think of another 20 of them."

Scarnecchia was with the Patriots for all but one of his 32 years in the league.
