Carolina Panthers Hold Private Workout with Harlan Miller

Last week, the Carolina Panthers worked out Southeastern Louisana cornerback Harlan Miller, according to a report.

While the starting cornerbacks for the Carolina Panthers appears set for this upcoming season with Josh NormanBene Benwikere and Brandon Boykin, there is some questions past 2016 with two of them playing on one-year contracts (Norman, Boykin).

It would make sense than the Panthers look at some of the cornerbacks in this upcoming NFL Draft class and according to Rand Getlin of the NFL Network, the team worked out Harlan Miller.

Miller was a three-year starter for Southeastern Louisana and was named to the third-team FCS All-American in 2014 and second-team All-American in 2015. He showed an ability in making game changing plays, finishing with 11 career interceptions.

Among cornerbacks, Scout ranks Miller as the seventh best cornerback and should be in consideration in the mid-rounds of the upcoming NFL Draft. However, he didn't perform as well at the NFL Combine but did improve in a number of workouts at his Pro Day.

Workout NFL Combine Pro Day
40-yard Dash 4.65 seconds 4.57 seconds
Vertical Jump 35.5 inches 32 inches
Broad Jump 118 inches 117 inches
3-Cone Drill 7.44 seconds 7.1 seconds

A player like Miller would be the perfect addition to the Panthers' secondary as he has the height (6'0") that this team covets at the cornerback position. He also wouldn't be forced into the starting lineup and can use his rookie season to develop and see an expanded role possibly as early as 2017.
