UCLA OL Kolton Miller declares for NFL draft


While it’s widely expected that quarterback Josh Rosen will leave college early for the NFL, he isn’t the first UCLA player to make that decision public. One of his blockers beat him to the punch.

Offensive tackle Kolton Miller, a redshirt junior, announced his intentions to turn pro on Tuesday night by signing with a sports agency.

The 6’8”, 310-pound Miller started 23 games for UCLA including all 13 this past season, his first at left tackle. He played right tackles in his first 2 years, including in 2016 when he suffered a broken leg midway through the season.

Miller’s departure means UCLA will be replacing 3 starters on the offensive line along with graduating center Scott Quessenberry and graduating left guard Najee Toran.
