Von Miller has a new pass-rushing star to make his life easier.

Suffice it to say he's happy.

The Denver Broncos linebacker posted an Instagram video of him celebrating after the team selected Bradley Chubb with the fifth overall pick in Thursday's first round of the 2018 NFL draft.

Chubb recorded 25 sacks during his four-year career at North Carolina State, earning first-team All-American honors and winning the Bronko Nagurski Trophy in 2017. He was widely viewed as one of the surest things in the 2018 draft class.

Miller has recorded 83.5 sacks in his first seven NFL seasons, including a 10-sack year in 2017. He's recorded double-digit sacks in six of his first seven seasons.

The Broncos are looking to rebound from a 2017 campaign where their once-formidable defense fell off and their offense was among the worst in the sport. Having already added quarterback Case Keenum in free agency, Denver went all-in on having one of the NFL's best pass rushes Thursday.
