Miller led the Falcons in receiving in each of his final three seasons. He was a second-team All-MAC pick in 2018 after leading the squad with 71 receptions, 1,148 yards (16.2 average) and nine touchdowns in 11 starts. He finished the year seventh in the FBS with 104.4 yards per game. Miller garnered third-team honors in 2017 (63-722-11.5, four TD) and first-team accolades as a sophomore (74-968-13.1, 10 TD). He served as a reserve receiver (7-29-4.2) and the team's primary kickoff returner (24-457-19.0) as a true freshman in 2015, taking off his redshirt to contribute in the team's final 10 games.

Overview
Slim, slot target with legitimate track speed and short area burst to separate over the top and underneath. Miller was lightly recruited out of high school but posted strong catch production for Bowling Green over the last three years. He's tough, but durability will be a concern for NFL scouts considering how often he absorbs big contact. There are boxes he won't check, but the speed/separation is one that gets an immediate check and that could help him find a roster spot as a three-level target and Day 3 selection.
Strengths
  • Former track man with legitimate sprinter's speed
  • Ran a 4.39-second 40-yard dash at his pro day
  • Early acceleration to blow past mismatched cornerbacks from slot
  • Very athletic and loose in his movements
  • Explodes out of breaks to open big windows
  • Eats up out-breaking routes all day long
  • Impressive catch finishing through heavy collisions
  • Can work all three levels of field from slot position
  • Recognizes safety location when working deep middle
Weaknesses
  • Thin frame lacks muscle and carries just 171 pounds
  • Scouts concerned over durability due to size
  • Absorbs unusually high amount of punishing blows
  • Too much wasted motion in his release
  • Needs to improve release plan and hand fighting vs
  • press
  • Inefficient at the top of the route
  • Lack of play strength will be a concern
  • Allows defensive backs to work through him and contest catches
  • Sub 30-inch arms hinder catch radius
