6. Anthony Miller, Memphis
NFL comparison – Steve Smith
Projected draft position – Round 3
The former walk-on at Memphis took the field each week with the mindset that he had something to prove. He wasn’t highly recruited coming out of high school yet he turned into the most prolific receiver the University of Memphis has ever seen.
The First-Team All-American broke just about every receiving record the school had to offer. Miller has very quick feet which helps him beat defenders off the line in press and set up his routes. The game film shows that he is more quick than fast. This, combined with his lack of size should put him in the slot position where he can utilize his quickness and great intermediate route running.
Miller will have the occasional drop as he looks to run before the catch. Playing each snap of every game with an extremely high motor, he is not afraid of contact and will contest every pass thrown his way without worrying about the oncoming hit. Miller knows what it takes to be successful and shouldn’t have an issue fitting in once he’s drafted.
