Speedy Receiver Selected

April 27th, 2019

The Bucs got flashed.

The Bucs dipped back into the MAC for their latest draft pick, sixth-round selection Scotty Miller of Bowling Green. It was the late sixth-round pick acquired in the DeSean Jackson trade.

Miller is a little guy at 5-11 and 166 pounds. He was second-team All-MAC last year and led the Falcons with nine touchdown receptions. Miller ran a 4.3 40 at his Pro Day and a geeky algorithm of a software spit out that he is comparable to Georgia wide receiver Mecole Hardman, who was drafted by the Chiefs in Round 2 yesterday.

The YouTube video below of Miller refers to him as “Flash.”

    166# is breakable… I hope it’s a solid build… but still he’ll be rag-dolled with a hand tackle

    Jeff Demps was olympics fast.. you need more than a 40 time. BA is a great coach but somehow he managed to turn Licht into an even worse drafter.

  5. Clean House Says:

    I like this for an end of 6th rnd picki

    I like our first pick

    The rest I hate

  6. Dom>Licht Says:

    A receiver with elite speed and QB that is not accurate throwing down field !! wasted pic after waste to pick . Jamies needs a OLof help and a running game!

  7. Shane247 Says:

    Laughable!!! The joke is on all of us!

    I can’t wait till Light and Arians get roasted when they address the media and the public for this debacle of a draft.

  8. SappAttack Says:

    Licht’s worst draft hands down

  9. jjbucfan Says:

    Licht just “Major Leagued” our draft. Other teams shopping at Nieman’s, Licht is shopping at 5 Below. Another analogy-Generic Drugs do not work as consistently as Name Brand drugs. They will work, but not as consistent. You have Demarcus Christmas sitting there in round 6 and you choose a 5’9” 170 pound WR from a smaller school. Were you worried someone might trade up and grab that specimen in the four picks in between your next pick? Because then you picked a DT nobody has ever heard of from Mizzou. I feel like we just got punked. F U Ashton Kutcher!!

    He’s actually 5-9 1/2, 174. Measured at his pro day. This kid is good. Check his youtube highlights. Get away fast. No one catches him if he’s ahead of them. Nice burst to get separation after catch. A lot more talent than Hump, with speed to burn.

  11. Brandon Says:

    He’s replacing Jackson, not Hump. Most of his highlights came from outside, not in the slot. He’s 5’9 172 at his Pro Day.

  12. IBelieveinJameis Says:

    Brandon is right – downfield burner to replace DJax. Can also help on ST. Not at all displeased with this pick. Certainly better than our 5th rounder. 🙁

    Have you guys seen him play? Watch the BG game against Oregon in 2018… it is available. The Pac 10 isn’t known for its slow and ponderous DB’s. But Miller ate them up with his speed in that game. He has good hands and the wheels. Can he bulk up and not lose any speed at the Pro level? Don’t know, but he has a chip on his shoulder, always having to prove his critics wrong. And I like that attitude.

  14. NOSBOS Says:

    It’s one thing to be fast it’s another thing to have top level acceleration. Which is bigger to me. This kid clearly accelerates and moves beyond people. I caught that one clip. Say hello to your new return man Tampa. Welcome my G.

  15. JGhoti86 Says:

    Does he offer anything worthwhile as a returner?

  16. jjbucfan Says:

    Very impressive film above against some very good teams. who knows? Don’t take a bad angle on the dude or its over. Hopefully they will prove to us why they are the scouts and GM and we are not.

  17. gilhealy Says:

    @Mark, you’re not kidding. He had no trouble with the Ducks. Great athlete. Evans, Watson, Godwin, Howard, Miller, Brate. Not bad.

  18. dmatt Says:

    Speed n running style kinda remind me of DeSean Jackson w/o the diva attitude. This is probably BA’s pick…a John Brown clone.

  19. Will Says:

    His pro day numbers say he can be slot or outside. Kid looks impressive. He can fly and no one catches him from behind. Good pick!!

  20. BucssFan90 Says:

    Hand timed 40?

    Doesn’t matter. He’s obviously a blazer. Film tells all.

  22. hirederrickbrooks Says:

    As Charles Barkley says, “Turrible” draft.

    We’ll be a fast and turrible team. See you guys next draft.

  23. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I’m still very amused that so many people are soooo certain this draft sucked for us or that this player or that one was the wrong pick.

    How are people so certain on a less than 50-50 chance which is all the players after White. Get down to rounds 6-7 and we’re talking about a 7-8% chance of success yet there are guys here going nucking futs over that less than 1 in 10 chance. These guys are long shots…you take your chance and hope for the best.

    I remember Jaquez Green taking a KO back and making a hard left running off the field wanting nothing to do with what was headed his way

  25. @Hands2theface Says:

    Most of you all seem like fools reacting to a draft that has no years of proof on it. If you all know so much better become a GM, a coach. Bunch of message board know it alls. Chill out and let’s see what comes of these picks. How many late round picks in the history of the NFL have become starters, pro bowlers, all pros, and hall of Famer? Calm down and go back to playing fortnite.

  26. BobbyBronco Says:

    This kid played on my sons HS team… he is a monster, played every game both ways.. had as many interceptions as touchdowns. His speed will make a huge impact, especially if they have him on returns, you guys are gonna enjoy watching Scotty, he makes everybody on the team play better

  27. jjbucfan Says:

    I love all these guys saying calm down, you don’t know anything, etc. most of the people on this board have been watching football/drafts or even played at certain levels which means you understand the game for 20+ years. We watch our Bucs with every dying breath and we understand what our weaknesses have been. If you draft the same position for the 2nd and 3rd draft 2 years in a row and don’t address anything else on your team, this is a problem. We just signed a kicker and then we draft one in the fifth round, you have to scratch your head. There is what 300+ programs, you would have your choice of UDFA kickers. Are you gonna tell me that that the 3rd guy is that far off from the 1st guy? BTW, according to Walter Football, the guy we chose was ranked 3rd behind the LSU and San Diego St guy. No o-lineman and an edge rusher ing the fourth and DT in the 7th. Other glaring positions of need. Don’t lecture us about how we should feel about this draft.

  28. Givinup! Says:

    Stpetebf:it’s not the players it’s the positions. We had one of the worst rushing off ly and we did nothing to improve! No ol,no rb,three dbs again and a kicker! After those picks no one will in the late rounds get a fair shake!

  30. @Hands2theface Says:

    JJBFAN: I appreciate what you say but I’ve been around football for MANY years and have even worked within the pro level. Logic says, wait and see on so many levels.

  31. JimmyJack Says:

    Givinup. The positions we drafted were too big of a need. The plan was obvisously and we need a total rebuild on defense. I think we were all suprizes they built from the back end but we are also Buc fans that only know how to properly build a Tampa Two defense.

    As far as OL it does need improvement and that’s what coaching is for…….If the only way to improve position groups was with premium draft choices the Bucs will never be a good team.

  32. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    Wow. 166 lbs, 5′ 9 1/2″, 4.3 40 time. This must be our poor man’s Marquise Brown.

  33. jjbucfan Says:

    I gotcha Hands, but you can’t seriously be happy today. I agree wait and see and since these guys are Bucs, I’m one of their biggest fans, but having said that…I look at what other teams have done, and just throw my hands up. Salary Cap Hell belongs on Licht as well. Not sure how our running game got better. I have been saying on this website, I put most everything on Koetter, Smith, Warhop, ST dude. The schemes and looks were like a Pee Wee team. We would call out plays as soon as we stepped to the line. You know who else did that? Every single defense. Kuechley actually said after one game they knew every play we were running….like literally knew the play and laughed about it. I will always support the players and this team, but that doesn’t give them immunity against criticism.

  34. ATrain Says:


    Holy Cow he will get broke in half

  35. @Hands2theface Says:

    JJ: I’m not crazy about this weekend but I do understand some of the picks and what coach Todd and company might do with them. Even the speedster at WR. But hey, I was also not very approving of how the previous coaching staff utilized some of the roster and believe the current staff will resuscitate some of these dead picks from the past. The play calling over the last few years has totally been square peg round hole on so many levels from my point of view.

  36. Cobraboy Says:

    @Givinup!: the major improvement is the coaching staff.

  37. DB55 Says:

    I’m a big fan of WR who catch the ball with their chest. That works out great in the nfl.

  38. BigHog Says:

    Looks like D-Jac .925 to me!!! Go Bucd

  39. Pittsshore Says:

    Look at the positive guys: We are the first team in NFL history with a male cheer leader. He may also serve as our 4th string “tight end”. Pre game meal: TOSSED SALAD.

  40. BigMacAttack Says:

    The kid has juice. May be a kick/punt returner. He can run and catch which is more than many wr’s they’ve drafted over the years.

  41. AMI_Chris Says:

    I will look forward to Jameis overthrowing him in camp.
