__Some tidbits about Roy Miller__

Roy's playing weight last season was 290lbs. He weighed for the NFL scouts at 313lbs. He says he was downgraded at the combine for his lack of bulk so he is on a 4800 calories per day diet.

He also says the Dallas Cowboys have shown him a lot of attention and he would love to play in his home state.

I think Roy will be a steal because he is projected as a 5th round guy. He is explosive off the ball and has a very high motor rushing the QB.
