Miles is a Baltimore native (a two-time All-Division pick at Western Tech High School) that stuck around Maryland to play his college ball for the Bears. He started seven of nine games played at left tackle as a redshirt freshman before taking the spot over full-time in 2016. However, Miles missed the 2017 season because he was ruled academically ineligible. He returned for his final season, earning a team captaincy and third-team All-MidEastern Athletic Conference honors after starting 11 games at left tackle.

Rounds 5-6
Overview
Developmental guard prospect with swing tackle potential possessing elite traits and potentially coachable faults. Miles' issues are plenty on tape, but they are unrelated to physical or athletic limitations. With just a few days of coaching at the Shrine Game practices, he started to show growth. His lack of instincts are a concern and there is no guarantee his hands and footwork will get corrected, but he has the traits and athletic ability to warrant a Day 3 "lottery scratch-off" selection as a potential low-risk, high-yield pick
Strengths
  • Good NFL size and great traits
  • Elite length with almost 36-inch arms and 11-inch hands
  • Frame should easily carry additional weight and muscle
  • Generated buzz with his play at Shrine Game practices
  • Plays with desired initial quickness out of his stance
  • Shows ability to unlock and roll his hips into contact
  • Impressive athletic ability in space
  • Has agility and foot quickness to improve with pass mirror
  • Could carry both tackle and guard value
Weaknesses
  • Pass sets will need plenty of work
  • Lacks footwork, balance and does too much leaning in pass pro
  • Hands have to be quicker to take advantage of length
  • Inaccurate hands fly out of target area too often in run and pass
  • Missing instincts to self-adjust and play reactive
  • Below-average power as drive blocker
  • Radar on second level blocks isn't there yet
  • Shoddy footwork leads to inefficient base and balance
  • Still learning landmarks for cut-offs and block security
