When the Bucs drafted WR Scotty Miller in the 6th round out of Bowling Green they thought he had a chance to be the heir apparent to WR Adam Humphries as the teams 3rd WR. Miller was predicted to be an undrafted free agent, but after he ran in the 4.3s at the combine scouts he found himself on a few team’s draft board, one of those being the Bucs. In 2017, his final year at Bowling Green, he earned first-team FBS with 74 catches for 968 yds and 10 TDs. He also showed he can be valuable on special teams as the team’s primary kick returner in 2015.
At the beginning of training camp, Miller looked good showcasing his speed downfield, but on August 5th he had a hamstring injury which he is just now returning from. During his time out WR Breshad Perriman has pretty much solidified his spot as the third receiver which leaves Miller battling BoBo Wilson, Justin Watson, for the fourth and 5th receiver’s spot. At just 5’9″ 174lbs Miller needs to show HC Bruce Arians, he can compete in the NFL with these last 2 preseason games.
