Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

Miller was rated a three-star recruit out of Philadelphia and redshirted as a freshman in 2015. After posting 22 tackles (five for loss) and 1.5 sacks in 2016, he earned a starting role in 2017 and thrived, posting 37 tackles (11.5 for loss) and 5.5 sacks, leading the team in TFLs and sacks. He kept progressing as a junior, totaling 41 tackles (15 for loss) and 7.5 sacks, earning third-team All-Big Ten honors.

ANALYSIS

Miller has a good combination of size (6-foot-4, 254 pounds, 33 5/8-inch arms) and speed (4.69-second 40-yard dash), and he uses those traits to create negative plays. He can threaten the edge of tackles outside or redirect inside on stunts, and he delivers shock on contact in his bull rush and in the run game. He can penetrate at times vs. the run and gives excellent effort in pursuit.

Miller remains rough around the edges, as he doesn't show great instincts, and his length is undermined by a complete lack of hand moves at this point. Offensive linemen neutralize him quickly when they get their hands on him, and he struggles to finish plays after penetrating. He's mostly a splash player in the run game, with below-average anchor ability making him a liability.

Projection: Sixth Round
