Overview

Often overshadowed by Texas' multitude of other standouts, Miller was key to the Longhorns' success over the past four seasons. He lacks the eye-popping size and speed numbers NFL scouts look for, though his production is sure to attract attention. A veteran of 49 games with the Longhorns, Miller leaves with 138 career tackles, 25 tackles for loss, and 10 sacks including 49-11-5.5 as a senior in earning first-team All-Big 12 honors as voted by the conference coaches. The defensive MVP in Texas' victory over Ohio State in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl (2.5 tackles, one TFL, one sack) also had a strong performance during the East-West Shrine Game and is a candidate to move up draft boards.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Short, squatty frame. ... Good lower-leg drive and use of leverage to hold up as a nose guard. ... Can anchor against the double-team and create a pile. ... Flashes some initial and lateral quickness as a pass rusher. ... Quick hands and impressive upper-body strength to disengage from blocks and make tackles at the point of attack. ... Flashes some explosiveness as a hitter. ... High-effort player who will pursue down the line. ... Physical player who has value as a short-yardage fullback or wedge-buster on special teams. ... Helped himself with solid week of practice at the East-West Shrine Game. Negatives: Limited athlete who lacks the size and agility to offer much more than what he's asked as a run-plugging nose guard. ... Needs an open lane to close and has only short-area quickness. ... Offers very little in terms of a traditional pass rush. ... Creates penetration behind the line of scrimmage due to his stout frame, but most of his plays are made based on hustle.
