NCAA Football: Cactus Bowl-Kansas State vs UCLA Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After a trade down from 10th overall to 15th overall with the Cardinals, the Raiders get a tackle anyway, selecting UCLA’s Kolton Miller. They were said to like Mike McGlinchey, but the 49ers took him at 9 overall ahead of the Raiders pick.

The tallest offensive lineman in this draft at 6-8.5, 309 pounds. He also ran the 40 a full second faster than Brown (4.91) showing his athleticism. Miller doesn’t have the experience of the above draft counterparts. He has just 23 college starts – 9 at right tackle, 14 at left tackle.

In his 13 starts at left tackle last season, he gave up just 2 sacks and 16 pressures in 579 pass blocking snaps. Protecting for top quarterback Josh Rosen, Miller had the second most pass blocking snaps of any tackle in this draft. For comparison, the closest to that among the above tackles was McGlinchey with 168 fewer pass blocking snaps (411).
