Remember this? D. Miller gettin’ naaaaaaaaasty!
Most mock drafts have about five Kentucky players from last year’s team projected in the first round of June’s draft. The sixth draft eligible Cat, Darius Miller, has been teetering from late first round to early second, according to draft experts. Miller has a chance to prove he belongs in the first round when the NBA Draft combine is held on June 7th and 8th. So what are draft experts and NBA scouts saying about Miller? Here’s a look a couple of websites that have profiles on the Maysville, KY native:
-An often overlooked but highly-efficient and extremely valuable role-player for one of the nation’s best teams, Darius Miller has once again found himself surrounded by another group of potential one-and-doners in Lexington. He did gain some individual recognition this summer, earning the opportunity to play for Team USA at the World University Games and participate in the Kevin Durant Skills Academy, but he is averaging roughly 6 fewer minutes per-game than he did last season and has not seen his role expand in the slightest as a senior. Already showing promising role-player potential with his ability to spread the floor and score in a complementary role, Miller has flashed some offensive tools that he didn’t get to showcase as a fourth or fifth option alongside his talented teammates.
-Unselfish with the prototypical physical tools of an NBA small forward. Can shoot out to the NBA three. Improved ball handling skills.

-Underrated and highly effective on both ends of the floor, Miller can provide instant quality minutes and more upside than given credit for.
Wait, so why isn’t he in the first round again?
