Scout.com Analysis 

Miller is a big-time receiver prospect who projects to the high-major level in college. Above average size and good speed make for tough matchup, especially in man coverage. Accelerates well in short areas, impressively so for long-striding WR. Adjusts well to ball in flight. Threat in red zone w/verified 36-inch vertical. A bit raw. Will need to add strength, but possesses frame to do so. Plenty of time for young WR to develop further. - Gabe Brooks, Scout.com Midlands Recruiting Analyst.
