BIOGRAPHY: In short, he went to high school with Rob Gronkowski, and Miles was recruited by many big schools out of high-school, but he choose Kent State to play with his step-brother Vondre Griffin. In Miles’ first year, Griffin was dismissed from the program (but was eventually cleared) of the charges, and Miles decided to leave the program with Griffin no longer there. After a year in a warehouse taking classes at a community college, Miles then enrolled at California University of PA. Where he earned PSAC Freshman of the Year, four All PSAC-West selections, back to back Defensive Player Of The Year awards, and two-time Division II All American honors. This USA Today article gives a great picture.
STRENGTHS: Good size and looks extremely athletic. Very lean and hard build. Miles is known as a punishing hitter, and is extremely willing to get physical against the run and he's a good tackler and wraps up well. Good diagnosis skills, and decent against the pass.
WEAKNESSES: He will have get much more technically sound as he moves up to the NFL. Sometimes can overpursue the play and can take bad angles at times. He sometimes tries too hard to make a big hit and that might get him in trouble in the NFL.
CONCLUSION: It's impossible to look at some of his highlights and not be impressed. At the same time, it's maddening because his it is impossible to judge how he'll fare against a much more talented pool of players. Miles has all the athletic skill and the physical nature that could make him a menace in the defensive backfield, but he's going to need to get much more technically sound and not rely on his brute strength and athleticism to make plays in the NFL. He's a great prospect for the Jets to give a try, but some dedicated work and roster stowing might pay dividends over time.
