Herb Miller likely has the toughest path to making the 53-man roster. Miller has far better size than the two previous options on this list, but he has less experience in the NFL than Wilkins, and his body of work in college was not as polished as Motley’s.
While he may not have the experience in game situations, this will be Miller’s second year in the NFL, as he spent the 2019 season on the practice squad and ended the year on the 53-man roster.
Miller hasn’t received a full chance yet, but he will use training camp as a way to make his case. The one thing that NFL coaches can’t change is size, and Miller’s advantage over Motley and Wilkins both in height and weight will go a long way.
While size is not everything, Miller was able to perform adequately during his time at FAU, posting two interceptions, 14 passes defended, and 102 total tackles. These stats may not pop off the page like Motleys, but combined with his size and athleticism, Miller has the tools to succeed in the Buccaneer defense.
The coming weeks will be extremely telling on how the Buccaneers view their three young corners, and the competition will be fierce. Tampa Bay should bring on two, but if they choose to keep only five corners on the roster, the battle will become even more of a dog fight to narrow this group down to one.
