2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Ryan Miller, OG, Colorado

Ryan Miller was a highly-touted five-star recruit when he began his collegiate career at Colorado. Unfortunately, he was never able to live up to those expectations (although he was good, but never great).

His frame is built for offensive tackle, although he mostly played guard for the Buffaloes. Since he is so tall, he does well to keep his pads down but it is very tough for him to get leverage. Miller can be bull-rushed versus the pass and does well to hold his ground versus the run. He shows a nice mean streak, uses his hands well in tight spaces, and sometimes can push defenders back off the line. For his size, he moves well in open spaces and can pull the line. In the end, his time at guard may benefit him in the long term. Miller feels like a natural fit at right tackle.

His limitations are more pronounced when pass-blocking. Miller has long arms, but doesn't have a great punch to move defenders. He slides nicely with above-average footwork. Although, he needs to improve using his hands to dictate the action and keep defenders engaged at the point of attack. A sub-par Senior Bowl performance really hurt his draft stock in January and he will need a strong combine to carry him back into consideration for the late rounds.
