Shareef Miller Drafted No. 138 Overall By Philadelphia Eagles
Penn State football’s Shareef Miller was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
The defensive end was voted third-team All-Big Ten by the league’s coaches and media after his junior season in 2018 and decided to forego his senior year. He tallied exactly 100 tackles and 14.5 sacks during his time at Penn State, including 7.5 sacks in his final season.
The 6’5″ playmaker was a constant on the Nittany Lions’ defensive line over the last three seasons, appearing in 40 games over the course of his career and starting in all but one during his sophomore and junior seasons. Miller was a key piece in Penn State’s Fiesta Bowl triumph over Washington in 2017.
Miller showcased his speed to scouts at the 2019 NFL Combine, a valuable trait for any defensive end to get off the edge. The Philadelphia native ran a 4.69 40-yard dash, which tied him for the 10th fastest time for an edge rusher at this year’s combine.
Miller, a native of Philadelphia, will join running back Miles Sanders on his hometown squad. He will try to strengthen the Eagles’ pass rush alongside Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox.
