Player Overview

Harlan Miller is a tough, competitive, athletic cornerback. I might describe him as hyper competitive with excellent work ethic and passion. It's these intangibles that have gotten him on the radars of NFL scouts across the country. Miller further improved his stock at the Senior Bowl where he shined against higher level competition. Miller has the height NFL teams are looking for in corners but still needs to add mass. Miller can stay with the receiver he's covering stride for stride. He isn't afraid to come up to the line of scrimmage either and make a tackle. He has an aggressive style of play which has him involved all over the field.

How He Makes the Cardinals Better and Creates Problems for the Redskins

Harlan Miller is at risk of not making the Cardinals final 53. Miller so far, hasn’t shown terribly but hasn't shown great either. A neutral performance is something you may expect out of a 6th round rookie but Miller was fighting an uphill battle from the beginning. The Cardinals are projected to only carry 8 defensive back spots. Those spots were already primarily filled by veterans such as: Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Justin Bethel, Marqui Christian, Tyvon Branch, Tony Jefferson, D.J. Swearinger, and Brandon Williams.

Miller definitely has a skill set to work with. With 33 passes defended over his college carrier he has the skills to locate the ball in the air and make plays.

It’s just that the Cardinals are set in their secondary.

Miller no doubt still has a chance to impress but its going to be tough sledding to carve out a roster spot. He eventually may end up on the Cardinals practice squad. Miller has experience on special teams returning kicks and he may have to make his mark there if he wants to stick around on a loaded Cardinals squad.

The Redskins are likely to not face Harlan Miller at all by the time the Cardinals match up comes around. If Harlan Miller is cut could he be a Redskins waiver target?
