Strong Points

Natural size and length. Has the frame to carry 320-plus pounds. Good overall athletic ability. Plays with good flexibility -- can move his feet and play with bend. Flashes being a top run- and pass-blocker. Can get into space and make a productive block. Mostly does a good job keeping his hands inside. Combine workout was excellent for a man of any size, let alone a 6-foot-8 guy

Weak Points

Lean frame. Needs to get stronger. Will give ground in pass protection vs. strong bull rushers at time. Struggles with wide speed in the two games I viewed. Gave up two sacks in one of those games (Texas A&M). Showed he can play in space, but he doesn't always adjust well on the move. Only played five games in 2016 because of a leg injury. Only one season at left tackle. Not a consistent finisher. As tall as he is, Miller doesn't always keep his back straight and can bend at waist to get under opponent.

The Way We See It

Miller is a fourth-year junior. He redshirted in 2014, played as a backup in 2015 and became a starter at right tackle in 2016. Started five games in 2016 before injury ended his season. Moved to left tackle in 2017 and started every game. Flashes top talent but some inconsistency with his overall play. Needs to get stronger in order to hold up vs. NFL defensive linemen. Can play on the left side but the club that drafts him may want to start him off on the right side to help him gain confidence. Needs to improve overall technique, but many natural traits are there for him to succeed at the next level. Has to find a way to add bulk to his lean frame.
