Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

Miller started five games as a redshirt freshman and five more in 2016, almost all at right tackle, before suffering a season-ending foot injury. He was moved to Josh Rosen's blind side in 2017 and responded by earning second-team All-Pac-12 honors. Miller tore up the NFL Scouting Combine, finishing first among offensive linemen in the broad jump (121 inches) and 10-yard split (1.67) and third in the 40 (5.67), short shuttle (4.49) and 3-cone (7.34).

ANALYSIS

With terrific length and athleticism, Miller has all of the tools you'd want at the position. He moves very well for his size, showing the ability to mirror in pass protection and climb to the second level with ease in the run game. He could be a weapon as a blocker in space on sweeps and screens. With long arms and strong hands, he flashes the ability to control defenders, and also shows good recognition of blitzes and stunts.

Plenty of polish is needed, however. Miller has a terrible habit of taking a false first step in pass protection, forcing him to open his hips to catch speedy edge rushers. He often allows defenders to cross his face back inside, and he undermines his athleticism by stopping his feet on contact, failing to sustain blocks or redirect. With his height and tendency to play high, power is an issue, and it could be a major problem early in his career.

Players with Miller's athletic profile usually go in Round 1, but there are plenty of concerns on tape.
