Draft Analysis:

"He's very strong and physical. He is strong at the point of attack. I still look at him and think he can get much better." -- Texas coach Charlie Strong

  • 6'2" Height
  • 33 1/4" Arm Length
  • 303LBS. Weight
  • 10 1/4" Hands


All-ACC Honorable Mention in 2014 and second-team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2013. Made 47 career starts, all at left guard; however, Louisville flips its offensive linemen from side to side, so he has played both left and right guard. Participant in the East-West Shrine Game. Rated a three-star prospect out of Miami Central (Fla.) and was named first-team All-Dade County.

Pro Day Results

40-yard dash: 5.2 seconds
Vertical jump: 28 inches
Broad jump: 8 feet, 10 inches
20-yard short shuttle: 4.79 seconds
3-cone drill: 7.8 seconds



Has power in his bulky upper body to bury his down-blocks. Features power in his hands to redirect. Has enough straight-line movement to pull on short side with reasonable effectiveness. Has a decent punch. Gets arm extension and can mirror in pass pro. Has initial fight and willingness to fight to reestablish his hands. Is able to alternate guard spots in-game.


Tight throughout his lower body and plays with poor leverage. Gives ground to power. Slow feet. Tries to reach and lunge rather than sliding feet into position. Waist-bender who will panic when beaten. Doesn't bring his feet with him in running game. Shoes stay glued to the grass. Gets lost on the second level. His secondary motor is shaky. Leaky pass protection for an interior lineman. Doesn't play with powerful grip.

Bottom Line

Miller isn't the most nimble athlete at the guard position and he will be limited by scheme fit, but the pure power in his upper body and his hands have scouts excited and there is a belief that he will be better as a pro than he was in college.
