Overview

Miller was the Butkus Award winner as the nation's top linebacker, and it seems like his game will translate very well to the next level. He is a great athlete that has prototypical size and very good instincts for the linebacker position. He is at his best as a pass rusher in a 3-4 defense, as he is explosive and strong with an arsenal of pass rushing moves. He may lack the size to consistently anchor against the run, but he flashes the ability to disengage from blockers and is an underrated run stopper. Overall, Miller is an excellent prospect that could get drafted in the top 10.

Analysis

Strengths

Miller has prototypical size and can flat out run. Explosive first step and closing burst makes him a terror as an edge rusher. Reads quickly, fills fast and delivers violent shots in the running game. Sound tackler that breaks down the ball carrier in the open field and consistently wraps. Hard working kid that shows a relentless motor.

Weaknesses

Does not have a thick lower half and at times will struggle to disengage from bigger offensive tackles in the running game. Takes poor angles at times in run support. Lacks the experience in man coverage and will not be able to cover more athletic tight ends.
