Kendre Miller 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Second on the team in rushing in 2021
- Scheme tendencies: Spread
- 2022 projected role: Starting RB
Pros: Kendre Miller’s best traits are his vision and his instincts. From the handoff, Miller does a good job of scanning the offensive line to find any creases that quickly come available. Miller’s vision allows him to scan from the frontside to the backside of the play and get upfield. Instinctually, Miller has a great feel for how to manipulate second-level defenders to create holes. Miller does a good job of showing that he is going to attack one hole and then jump cutting to another gap vacated by a defender. Overall, Miller is a productive running back at TCU that appears to be scheme versatile because of his vision and instincts.
Cons: Kendre Miller’s deficiencies as a player simply come from what appears to be a lack of high-level athletic traits. Miller does a great job of locating the hole and getting through it but there appears to be a lack of top-end speed and burst. Through a combination of Miller and the scheme, Miller has many opportunities where he has lanes to break off big runs but the runs become limited. Miller doesn’t show the ability to pull away from defenders in the open field. Miller projects as a running back who can be a part of a rotation. Miller has a skill set that would make him an effective short-to-intermediate running back, but a team may need to add a running back with a speed element to it.
