74 Days to Purdue Football: Eric Miller

Today’s player should provide depth not he offensive line.

NCAA Football: Ohio State at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

We continue to work our way through offensive linemen today with another freshman coming out of a redshirt year.

Eric Miller - Fr. (RS)

Offensive Line

2019 Projection: Reserve on Offensive Line

Miller projects as a tackle, so that makes him more of a reserve this coming season because Grant Hermanns and Matt McCann have those spots on lockdown. That gives him a chance to develop more for next year when McCann is gone. He has the height and the size to be a pretty good tackle in the coming seasons.

In high school Miller’s team went 9-3 in his final season and the offense averaged almost 300 yards per game. He was a First Team all-conference selection as well. He is an athletic tackle of the type that Brohm tends to favor, so expect this year to be a strong developmental year for him.
