Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Jaguars' picks: 6/180, Zach Miller, TE, 6-4, 240, Nebraska-Omaha...The Jaguars failed on the Matt Jones conversion of going from college quarterback to NFL receiver, now they'll try it with Miller. He was a quarterback in college but will be used strictly as a tight end with the Jaguars. His only experience at that position came in the Cactus Bowl (Division II All-Star game) at the end of the 2008 season, where he caught five passes for 116 yards and a touchdown. Miller says he's ready for the challenge to learn the new position and win a roster spot with the Jaguars. - by The Sports Xchange

Draft Scout Zach Miller News
12/24/17 - TE Zach Miller returned to Soldier Field on Sunday as he continues to recover from an injury that nearly cost him his left leg. Miller walked to the sidelines and addressed the crowd in an interview shown on the video board. He has undergone eight surgeries since suffering a torn artery while dislocating his knee trying to make a touchdown catch in New Orleans in late October.
12/21/17 - TE Zach Miller (knee), who is on injured reserve, was named recipient of the Good Guy Award from the local chapter of the Pro Football Writers Association.
10/30/17 - TE Zach Miller will remain in the hospital following Sunday night's emergency vascular surgery on his leg after he suffered a dislocated left knee in the game against the New Orleans Saints.
The 33-year-old Miller is at University Medical Center in New Orleans after doctors performed "urgent vascular surgery" to stabilize his devastating injury, which was diagnosed as a torn popliteal artery in his left leg, the Bears announced Monday.
"During our game at the New Orleans Saints yesterday, TE Zach Miller sustained a serious injury to his left knee and immediate evaluation from our medical team on site rushed him to nearby University Medical Center New Orleans (UMC) for urgent vascular surgery to repair a torn popliteal artery," the Bears said in a statement. "Successful surgery was performed immediately on Sunday by the UMC vascular surgeons to stabilize his injury.
"Zach remains at UMC, along with Bears medical personnel, where he will stay under further evaluation. We are thinking of Zach and his family and support from our entire organization goes out to them."
10/30/17 - TE Zach Miller (knee) suffered a dislocation on what first appeared to be a touchdown catch, and underwent surgery to repair a torn popliteal artery resulting from the leg injury.
He remained hospitalized late Monday and his condition was being monitored. Miller, who is 33, has been plagued throughout his career with injuries. A broken foot ended his 2016 season in Week 11. Turf toe took him out of the season finale in 2015 and in 2014 he had a torn Lisfranc ligament in the second week of the season and missed the rest of the year. Miller also had a torn Achilles and calf muscle in 2012 with Jacksonville and in 2011 had season-ending shoulder surgery with the Jaguars.
10/29/17 - TE Zach Miller suffered a serious dislocation of his left knee in the third quarter Sunday on what at first was ruled a 25-yard touchdown catch on third-and-10, which would have moved Chicago within 14-10. Miller came down awkwardly on his left leg and lay motionless on the ground, but officials ruled on the field that he had come down with the catch. After the review, referee Carl Cheffers reversed the touchdown call, saying Miller "went to the ground (and) temporarily lost control of the ball. The ball hit the ground; therefore, it is incomplete." Miller was taken to a local hospital.
"He will be in our thoughts and prayers on the flight home," Fox said. "He is a fantastic person. He's a great teammate. He is loved in our locker room."
