Miller looked like an all-conference performer for the first seven games of the 2017 season, starting each contest, posting 23 tackles and intercepting two passes. However, he injured his left leg at Arizona State, ending his season prematurely. Miller returned to start 12 contests in 2018, posting 26 tackles, two for loss, two interceptions, six pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. The All-San Diego Section pick and track star from Oceanside played as a reserve in all 13 games for the Huskies as a true freshman (five tackles, one interception) and all 14 games as sophomore (seven tackles, one INT).

Overview
Tall but thin press corner with the ability to bump and run, mirror the early stages from a pedal and take on Cover-3 duties. While Miller has the athletic ability to do all of the above, he might lack the physical strength and anticipation to truly make his mark in terms of becoming a ball hawk who contests catches. Miller has man-cover talent but must improve his finishing rate as a tackler. His length and athletic profile should make him a Day 3 selection.
Strengths
  • Long press corner
  • Accurate with jabs and punches from press
  • Responsive feet to mirror press release
  • Hips swing freely for smooth opening and transitions
  • Good speed alterations to play ball and man from cover-3
  • Excellent body control and balance in coverage movements
  • Above-average ability to stack and track downfield
  • Well-timed ball attacks at catch-point
  • Possesses adequate top-end speed
  • Former track man with explosive hips as leaper
Weaknesses
  • Thin frame creates durability concerns
  • Missed two games this season and broke his ankle in 2017
  • Play strength is poor; he managed just six bench reps at the combine
  • Average instincts and anticipation from off coverage
  • Very average change of direction
  • Lacks early burst to close ground quickly when climbed past by receiver
  • Sits on high side of routes, allowing easy cuts across his face
  • Will duck his head and go ankle diving to tackle
  • Sits and waits for running back rather than cutting off angles

"He struggled a little bit at the Combine, but he's long, physical and tough, so that usually makes it in the league -- especially at cornerback." -- College scouting director for NFC team
