Ht: 6-5 Wt: 256 40: 4.79 Year: 4Jr
Bio: Three-year starter who's led Virginia in
receiving the past two seasons posting 41/
541/5 as a junior after 70/835/6 the prior year.
Recipient of the Mackey Award in 2004, handed
to the nation's top tight end. All-American and
All-Conference player the past two-years.
Play-making pass catcher slowly turning into a
complete tight end. Very quick off the snap into
routes, displays good focus and easily makes
the catch in traffic. Shields away opponents
with his frame, extends his hands and looks
the ball in. Settles into the open spot on the
field, consistently gets separation, and makes
himself an available target for the quarterback.
Possesses soft hands and plucks the ball
from the air. Sturdy pass catcher who takes
a pounding or makes the catch with defenders
draped on him and holds onto the ball. Solid
route runner. Blocks with leverage and strong
enough to turn defenders off the point. Good
potential as a position blocker.
Negatives: Must learn
to finish blocks. Not a consistent downfield
receiving threat and does not present himself
as a tight end who consistently makes plays
in the secondary.
Analysis: Productive and
reliable in all aspects of the game, Miller is not
as flashy nor as explosive compared to many of
the recent junior tight ends who have entered the
draft, though he may be a more complete player
at the position. Offers good upside at the next
level, and will be quietly productive in several
areas throughout his NFL career.
