 Justin Miller Grade: 3.98
 Position: CB
 Class: Jr
 School: Clemson
 Conference: ACC
 Ht., Wt.: 5-9.5, 201
 40 Time: 4.49
  Selected by: New York Jets
  Round 2, pick 25 (57 overall)

BIO: Three-year starter who made a major impact the moment he came to Clemson. Junior defensive totals included 49/3/7 with a 33 yard average on 20 kick returns and two scores. Also had a 13-yard average on 26 punt returns with an additional touchdown. Sophomore totals included 47/2/13 after a freshman campaign of 61/8/9. Also averaged 35.1 yards on 13 kick returns as a freshman. Pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge in July of 2002.

POSITIVES: Strong, physical shut-down cornerback with the ability to impact games in a variety of ways. Jams opponents at the line, physical throughout the route and a tough defender who consistently takes on bigger opponents. Explodes up the field defending screens, throws his body around the field and works to make a tackle. Quick flipping his hips to transition with opponents, displays good footwork in all directions of the field and the ability to immediately close on the ball. Has a quick plant and break, and fights to get a hand in on the pass. Good job immediately locating the ball in the air.

NEGATIVES: Loses focus, gets lazy and at times he's hesitant reacting to receivers moves off the line.

ANALYSIS: A cornerback rarely tested in college, quarterbacks purposely stayed away from Miller because of his skill. Besides possessing outstanding size/speed numbers as well as ball skills, his ability to immediately alter momentum of games as a return specialist is added value. Still rough around the edges, Miller offers abundant upside for the next level and will be a very productive NFL player should he focus on the task at hand.
