Is Kolton Miller an option at tackle for the Chicago Bears in the second round?

Despite starting in just one season at left tackle for the UCLA Bruins, Kolton Miller was able to earn second team All-Pac 12 honors in his junior season. This was enough for the long and talented tackle to test the NFL Draft waters. Miller blew up the combine and shot up draft boards. Can he fall into the second round, and does he have a fit for the Bears moving forward.


Age: 22

School: UCLA Bruins

Kolton Miller has the desired size and athletic measurables to transfer to the NFL with ease. He is a physical player who is able to finish plays and is not afraid to put his opponent on the ground.

Miller is able to show his quick ability to get off of the line of scrimmage and secure blocks in the second level.

He also has strong hand technique and the understanding of how to fight off defenders.


Miller surprised many in the athletic testing as some of that did not necessarily show on tape. As a pass protector, he is a segmented mover. His bend was average and he was able to lose a lot of his length by being beat around the edge with speed.

He has some balance issues against power, and his movement as a left tackle is still pretty raw. A team drafting Miller high will have to deal with the debate of him being a project at left tackle, or a potentially better fight on the right side, a position he was more comfortable in playing.
