It’s rivalry week! Because of that we’re going to be doing a special edition of Chiefs prospects featuring players from two of the top rivalries in college football.
I have identified over 170 prospects for the 2019 draft that I believe could be potential fits for the Kansas City Chiefs. I’ll be releasing mini scouting reports on these prospects in random groups of five up until the draft.
Check out the tenth group of prospects down below:
Sometimes a really good football player gets buried on Alabama’s roster because of their extraordinary depth. That’s the case with Christian Miller. Before his redshirt senior season, Christian Miller only had 22 tackles and three sacks as a backup. In 2017 he had a chance to make an impact, but suffered an arm injury that knocked him out for most of the season. In 2018 Miller has 28 tackles, seven sacks, 10 tackles for loss, and fumble recovery.
Miller has the perfect body type to play OLB in a 3-4 base defense. He’s listed at 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds and has long arms. He’s great at using his natural strength to engage blockers and then using his length to disengage. He’s a high-motor player and is relentless in his pursuit of the ball carrier. You don’t ever see him jogging, that’s for sure.
This is the type of player that could help to bring an air of toughness to the Chiefs’ defense that it’s lacked the past two seasons. With the depth in this edge class look for Miller to go at some point during day two.
