Bruce Miller
Round 7, Pick 211
Position: OLB
Class:  5Sr
School: UCF
Conference: Conference USA
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 254
40 Time: 4.84
Biography: "Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his freshman season and named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Year in 2009. Senior totals included 63/13.5/8.5, two interceptions, and two pass break-ups. Junior numbers included 61/18/13. Posted 17 sacks as a sophomore."

Positives: "Pass rushing defensive end who projects to linebacker in the NFL. Plays with terrific leverage, gets underneath blockers, and fluid moving in every direction of the field. Chases to get involved in the action, plays with explosiveness, and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Possesses great first-step quickness, keeps his feet moving, and wedges through blocks up front. Consistently gets penetration, shows ability in pursuit, and goes very hard. Flashes ability to drop off the line and play in space on zone blitzes."

Negatives: Lacks the size to be an every-down lineman in the NFL. Does not have great height for an outside linebacker.

Analysis: Miller has been tremendously productive on the college level and is a defender with a nonstop motor. He's a situational pass rush specialist with a special teams mentality and should find a place on an NFL roster.

Projection: 6th
