Miller played three seasons at UCLA after redshirting as a true freshman. He played in 31 games with 23 starts at both left and right tackle. With Donald Penn rehabbing from Lisfranc surgery, Miller will get a long look at left tackle during the off-season program and likely into training camp.
If it is determined Penn will retain his position, Miller could be moved to the right side as the Raiders attempt to put their five best lineman on the field.
