Chris Miller
6-1/213 Ball State
4.68 Senior

Pros: Has a good, strong leg. Works well getting hang time and accuracy on the short field.

Cons: Will out kick coverage at times and has many line drives.

Overview: Doesn't get a ton of reps because of the efficiency of Ball State's offense this past year. Averaged 44.8 yards per punt in his career.

NFL Forecast: He's no relation to Josh Miller, but has a similar game in that he has a good leg and shows good potential as a directional punter. He needs to become more consistent, but Miller is relatively speaking, NFL ready right now. He won't light the world on fire anytime soon, but few rookie punters do. But in a few shorts years, he could be one of the better punters in the league.

ATL Forecast: Miller could produce for the Falcons right away, but unlikely to unseat Koenen. But he'd be a nice developmental prospect that works well as an insurance policy in case the team can't re-sign Koenen to a long-term contract in the next 10 months.

Value: I'd prefer to sign him as an undrafted free agent, but a team that has an unsettled punting position might merit taking him at the end of Round Seven.
