Biography: "Two-year starter awarded all-American and all-Conference honors after each season. Totals last year included 68/17.5/10.5, with one pass intercepted and six more broken up. Junior totals included 48/21/17."
Positives: "Explosive and athletic linebacker with a tremendous amount of upside. Breaks down well, fluid moving in every direction of the field, and displays a terrific burst of speed. Rarely off his feet, immediately alters his angle of attack, and makes a lot of athletic plays. Shows the ability to pursue and catch the ball carrier from the backside, relatively instinctive, and flashes ability as an open field tackler. Smooth turning his hips, gets depth on pass drops and shows skill in coverage. Explodes up the field rushing the passer, fast off the edge out of a three-point stance and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage."
Negatives: Lacks great bulk and tends to take wide angles around blockers rather than fight them head-on. Does not always play with a physical nature.
Analysis: "Coming into the season many considered Miller one of the best 3-4 outside linebackers available in the draft. But after his off-season performance at the Senior Bowl and combine, most now grade Miller as the best linebacker for any system at the next level. He's a three-down defender with a complete game who just needs to fine tune the details of his position but should be an immediate starter at the next level."
