Scotty Miller was drafted by Bruce Arians-coached Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019. He was a sixth-round pick (208th overall) at the 2019 NFL Draft. The Bucs used the pick acquired from the DeSean Jackson to Philadelphia Eagles trade deal to bring in Miller two years ago.

Miller was clocked at an official 4.39 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. But with the presence of in-form duo Mike Evans and Chris Godwin in Tampa Bay, Scotty knew he would have to work his way up the wide receiver depth chart in order to get an extended run with the first team.

That’s exactly what he did this season as the Buccaneers were crowned Super Bowl LV champions on February 7, 2021.

23-year old Buccaneers wide receiver Scotty Miller was the latest guest to feature on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. With the host absent due to illness, it was Nick Wright who stepped in and engaged in a conversation with Miller with regards to his stellar showing for the Buccaneers throughout 2020.

“Yeah, I’m just super thankful for the opportunities I got and uh when I did get em I started to take advantage of every one. But I knew, the type of offense we run, would be a system, there’s tons of opportunities for everyone.”

“We take so many chances, so many shots, always throwing the ball downfield…I knew I had to step up and go get that number three wide receiver role behind Mike and Chris. I just tried to work really hard and get ready for the opportunities,” Miller said in conversation with popular analyst Nick Wright.

His relationship with his teammates, especially QB Tom Brady, was a big reason for his success. With his impressive work-rate, Miller has loads of room to develop to in the coming years.
