As we continue throught he offensive line many of hte comments are the same: “This is a player that could start this year” as everything but left tackle is up for grabs. Well, today we have a player that does have starting experience.

Eric Miller - So.

Offensive Line

2020 Projection: Potential Starter

First off, an observation: Purdue has a lot of 295 pound linemen. Miller does have experience from last season as he was a critical reserve up front. He played in 11 of 12 games and even made two starts. He primarily played at right tackle, and with his height and wingspan that seems like a good spot for him especially with Grant Hermanns entrenched on the other side.

Miller was one of 33 freshmen that played last season, and that experience should pay huge dividends coing forward. He split time with Will Bramel last year, but having both back is an asset.
