Raiders trade down and select Zach Miller

The Oakland Raiders dropped down five sports in the second round and picked up a fourth rounder in the process, 105th overall, from the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals took Alan Branch with that pick while the Raiders selected Arizona State tight end Zach Miller with their second round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, 38th overall.

The Cardinals took Alan Branch with that pick while the Raiders selected Arizona State tight end Zach Miller with their second round pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, 38th overall. Feeling like he accomplished everything he could in college, Zack Miller departed for the NFL and was rewarded with his early second round selection.

Seen as the second best tight end in a rather weak class for the position, Miller comes of the same pedigree as former Sun Devil Todd Heap.

The Mackey Award finalist (nation's top tight end) grabbed 50 passes for 484 yards (9.7 avg.) and four touchdowns, after having a disappointing 2005.

He ranks sixth overall on the school's career record list with 144 receptions, setting the school tight end mark, over a three-year career. He gained 1,512 yards (10.5 avg.) with 14 touchdowns and recorded four tackles (three solos).
