For the second consecutive year, a Colorado Buffaloes offensive lineman has been selected in the NFL Draft, as the Cleveland Browns chose Ryan Miller in the fifth round. Last season, the New England Patriots selected Nate Solder with their first round pick.
Miller had a very consistent career at Colorado, starting a school-record 48 games. Miller has the size to play right tackle in the NFL, measuring in at 6'7 and 326 pounds. Miller began his career as a tackle at Colorado, but following an injury during the 2008 season, he moved to guard, which is where he played the majority of his career.
This is the second selection the Browns have used on an offensive lineman, as they picked Mitchell Schwarz in the second round. Cleveland drew a lot of attention in the first round after adding both Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden.
