Last year: I ranked Miller #48 and said he would be a backup tight end. He played in eight games as a special teamer and backup tight end but did not accrue any statistics.
Miller has led a bit of a wandering path to this point in his career. He started off as a highly touted wide receiver recruit, but when he arrived in Ann Arbor for his senior year of high school, it looked to me like he wouldn't be able to hack it at wide receiver. He tried to play at wideout as a freshman, moved to tight end as a sophomore, and now finds himself back at the wide receiver position after the spring didn't go so well.
Now headed into his junior year, Miller doesn't look much closer to seeing the field with any consistency. He's too slow to stretch the field, not sudden enough to get open on short routes, too small to be an in-line blocker at tight end, and was never considered a "jump ball" type of receiver in high school. He seems to be a man without a true position. However, the need for contributors at wide receiver (and tight end) is pretty dire. The starters are average, and the backups are very young and unproven. It remains to be seen how Al Borges will use him in the offense, if at all.
Prediction: Backup wide receiver or tight end
