Draft Scout Ryan Miller News
07/31/13 - OL Ryan Miller suffered a concussion Saturday on the first day the Browns were in shoulder pads. The guard-tackle was in one-on-one blocking drills and was knocked unconscious in a helmet to helmet collision.
Miller was transported by ambulance to The Cleveland Clinic. He was discharged the same night though he has yet to return to the practice field.
"It's scary because you never know," said linebacker Quentin Groves, the first player to notice Miller was injured. "We play this game so hard, so violent. Any moment, this game could be taken away, and that's the thing I want guys to learn from this. Cherish the moments while you're out here. Cherish tying your cleats up. Cherish the smell of the grass. Cherish snapping that chinstrap on because any moment it can be taken away from you."
04/30/12 - Offensive tackle Ryan Miller was taken with the 160th overall pick. The pick that originally belonged to the Vikings was acquired in 2010 in the Brady Quinn trade. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I try to play nasty. I might not be the most technically sound, but I'll bleed, bite, claw and scratch to get the job done." - Offensive lineman Ryan Miller, the Browns 160th draft pick. - The Sports Xchange
04/30/12 - A closer look at the Browns' drafts: Round 5/160 - Ryan Miller, OL, 6-7, 321, Colorado...Miller could challenge for a starting job at right guard or right tackle. - The Sports Xchange
04/12/12 - Ryan Miller of Colorado doesn't rate among the elite tackles mentioned above, but he has risen to the point that some teams now regard him as a compelling middle-round choice. Miller, who started a record 48 games for the Buffs, is an enigma of sorts, since he has short arms and is perhaps too tall (6-feet-6 7/8) to have the kind of leverage to move to guard, a position he played in college at times. But Miller has some in-line strength, and displays enough nastiness. Clubs tend to see him as a guy with some upside, with a chance to develop into a starter. - Len Pasquarelli, The Sports Xchange
02/14/12 - Miller was the only Buff - from a class of 28 seniors - invited to the NFL Scouting Combine later this month in Indianapolis. He is preparing for that three-day torture test of workouts and interviews with all 32 franchises at Velocity Sports Performance in Irvine, Calif., under the direction of his agents at Athletes First. Round Two will come soon after at Colorado's pro timing day March 8. Miller will be reunited that day with many of his former teammates for one final workout together on the CU campus in front of scouts. He reflected recently on his five years in Boulder and where it appears to be taking him. He has come a long way since he was a 6-foot-4, 270-pound sophomore at Columbine High School in 2004 questioning his future. "I was a baby," Miller said. "I had this huge man's body but I didn't have the mindset for it. Once that mindset came around to harness the physical ability, it really kicked in. It was awesome." Miller said Columbine coach Andy Lowry deserves as much credit as anyone for showing him the path to where he is now. He said before his junior year in high school when Lowry learned to push the right buttons in Miller, he would never have guessed football would become his life. "I hated football," Miller said. "I could not stand it. "Once you realize you're good at something or that you have potential in something and you can really kind of unlock it and help move that along, the entire game changes. It was such a wonderful feeling to realize, 'OK, I'm going to get the chance to go to college and play for Colorado and then I might get the chance to go to the NFL and hopefully end up playing for the Broncos.'" - Kyle Ringo, Colorado Daily
