Pos: 
Underrated linebacker with a complete game. Sized well, fluid and makes plays in every direction of the field. Agile and uses outstanding hand technique to defeat blocks, Displays good change of direction as well as speed to pursue plays laterally. Plays with balance and leverage and keeps the action in front of him. Stays with assignments and occupies blockers to allow teammates to make plays on the ball. Solid pass rusher standing over tackle or out of a three-point stance. Shows the ability to bend off the edge and makes a lot of plays behind the line of scrimmage.
Neg: 
Lacks great bulk and gets handled by blockers. Plays fast but has an average 40 time. Marginal ball skills in coverage.
Analysis: 
Miller was one of my favorite linebackers to scout in the lead-up to the draft, as he's an athletic prospect who plays smart, disciplined football. He's a natural fit on the outside of a 3-4 alignment and can play all three downs once he polishes his pass-coverage skills.
