2015 NFL Draft Profile: OG John Miller, Louisville


John Miller is a guard from Louisville who has experience playing both left and right guard due to the constant line shifts by Louisville. Miller is officially listed as a left guard and is well suited for it with his powerful 6’2″, 303 pound frame and 33 1/4″ arm length.

Miller was named as an All-ACC Honorable Mention in 2014 and was a second team All-American selection in 2013. Miller is also a durable player, making all 46 starts in his college career as a four year starter who started as a true freshman.


More from NY Giants Draft

  • Powerful upper body strength
  • Strong hands
  • Solid in run blocking
  • Versatile (can play both left and right guard positions)
  • Very physical blocker
  • Good lateral movement, can go in motion


  • Questionable in pass protection
  • Poor footwork, can get beaten often by experienced defensive linemen
  • Questionable motor
  • Poor lower body control that may cause him to lose leverage when blocking
  • Relies on arm strength rather than proper footwork
  • Tends to over-extend himself which could cause him to fall off balance

Overall, Miller is worthy of being on an NFL roster, but won’t amount to much more than a backup unless he improves his footwork. Miller could go in the middle rounds but is really more of a late round pick with potential to succeed with teams who rely on running the ball. Miller could provide good depth to any NFL roster due to his versatility. If Miller goes undrafted, he will be a target as a free agent for teams in the market for a project offensive lineman.
