School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:

5.13

BIOGRAPHY: "Awarded all-Conference honors as a senior, when he started 13 games and finished the year with 49/11/5.5. First defensive lineman off the bench as a junior and totaled 40/8/1."

POSITIVES: "Quick, explosive defensive tackle moving up draft boards. Bends his knees, plays with good pad level, and explodes off the snap with a nice first step. Resilient, adjusts off the initial block, and quickly gets back to playing form. Fights with his hands, moves well on his feet, and is rather athletic. Chases hard to get involved in the action."

NEGATIVES: Struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point. Pushed aside from his angle of attack by a single opponent. Does not possess the top growth potential.

ANALYSIS: "Miller watched his game take off last season, and he was a disruptive force in the middle of the Longhorn line. He possesses the build and movement skills to be used as a three-technique lineman, and he is a prospect with a good degree of upside potential."

PROJECTION: Third/Fourth Round
