SCOUTING REPORT Heath Miller TE, Steelers

February 2006
Sporting News;2/10/2006, Vol. 230 Issue 6, p26
The article focuses on football player Heath Miller of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He possesses good overall ball skills and has the best hands of anyone in this year's rookie class. He displays impressive focus and concentration. He can make the catch on the run or away from his body and protects the ball very well. Miller started 14 regular-season games, hauling in 39 passes for 459 yards and six touchdowns, and he also has been a major contributor during the playoffs. However, he has only adequate speed and doesn't show explosiveness or breakaway ability after the catch.
