Expert Opinion: OT Kolton Miller’s Profile

Left tackle Kolton Miller blocked for UCLA star quarterback, Josh Rosen, who could be a Cleveland Brown on draft night.  He is a bit thin for his position, due to his height of 6’9″, but only 310 pounds.

Miller will play with a high effort each snap, which is great for any offensive line, especially towards the end of games. However, his height may be an issue when dealing with defenders trying to go around him, instead of a pure bull rush.

At the Combine, Miller he ran a 4.95 40-yard dash, 24 bench reps, 31.5″ verticle jump and a 121″ broad jump.

I expect Miller to go on Day 2, either late-second or early-third, to a team that has a solidified offensive line that can give Miller time to learn as a backup.

Many experts see Miller as a liability when it comes to pass rushing. He’ll likely be an average lineman, but nothing that is in the elite category.

Despite future Hall-of-Famer, Joe Thomas, retiring, I do not see the Browns showing any interest in Miller. The team is going to reshuffle the line to accommodate for Joe’s absence. While they will definitely draft an offensive lineman, it will not be Miller.

It will be much more interesting to see if Josh Rosen becomes a Brown.
