Shortstops are one of the strength of the 2015 draft class and Miller is one of the top high school players at the position. While scouts are impressed with his defensive skills, they are divided about whether he will be able to stay at shortstop as a professional. Some believe his plus speed and soft hands will be enough to keep him at the position. Others think his average arm strength and infield actions are better suited for second base. Miller has a good feel for the barrel and his balanced righthanded swing allows him to make a lot of contact at the plate. He has some pop in his 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame, but he's close to physically mature and is unlikely to develop more than average power. He has good athleticism and plays the game easily. He earns praise for his makeup, intelligence and baseball instincts. Teams that view Miller as a shortstop will likely rate him as a first rounder. Those that seem him as a future second baseman will have him a little lower on their draft boards.
