4. Kolton Miller, UCLA, OT
PFF Big Board 2018: N/A
NFL.com’s Prospect Grade: 5.80 (Chance to become an NFL starter)
After a shortened sophomore season at UCLA, offensive lineman Kolton Miller rebounded in 2017 and earning himself an NFL career.
Standing at 6-foot-8 with a 310-pound frame, Miller contains all the physical characteristics of an NFL tackle. His ability to pick up blitzes and defensive schemes is as good as it gets, which makes him a great fit in Baltimore.
He enters the NFL draft with a 97.8 pass block efficiency and gave up only two sacks in 2017. In a larger sample size, Miller’s quarterback hits increased each year with eight last season but decreased his hurries per year as well.
According to Pro Football Focus, Miller holds the athletism to be a force in the run game. However, NFL Analyst Lance Zierlein proclaims otherwise:
"He has the physical traits to become an above average NFL starter, but he’ll need to improve his pass pro technique and become a better finisher in the run game."
Furthermore, the California native puts in 100 percent effort in each snap and could prove as a worthy draft pick for the Baltimore Ravens.
At the NFL Draft Combine 2018, Kolton Miller out of UCLA set the broad jump record for offensive linemen with 10’1″ attempt.
Miller recorded top performance results in both the 20-yard shuttle (4.49 seconds, 3rd) and 40-yard dash (4.95 seconds, 3rd). His 31.5 inches in the vertical jump was good enough for fourth best at the NFL combine.
