As a senior, he was voted a team captain and was given the Ideal Mountaineer Man Award from his coaches. All of that earned him an invite to the Senior Bowl, where he excelled working with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' coaching staff.
"I think I did pretty well just catching on to the offense and the different, bigger terminologies," Myles said.
Myles put on quite a performance during Senior Bowl week. He had the best hands of any receiver there, consistently catching every ball thrown within his wheelhouse. Also, he proved to have stellar body control and was extremely effective in the red zone, which was to be expected given that he scored once every 5.8 catches as a collegian.
What stood out the most was Myles' understanding of the game. He routinely set up defenders with his crisp routes and worked diligently to make himself available to his quarterback.
"I'm hardnosed and willing to do whatever to try to make big plays," Myles said.
Although he didn't fare as well in the game (zero receptions, one rush for a 12-yard loss), he was still grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Senior Bowl week. Not only was he able to prove his mettle against top competition, but he was able to get a sneak preview as to what it is like to be tutored by the pros.
"It's definitely great getting prepared and coached by an NFL staff," he said.
Any NFL staff would love the opportunity to work with Myles on an extended basis. Several met with him during Senior Bowl week, although he spent more time with the Seattle Seahawks than any other club. It is believed the Chargers are among the other teams he met with.
Myles may never develop into a legitimate No. 1 receiver. However, when a big play needs to be made he knows how to get it done, a quality the Chargers would love to acquire.
