Seahawks sign OLB Horace Miller

The Seahawks have signed UTEP outside linebacker Horace Miller, a free agent that the team hosted for a tryout to their Rookie Mini-Camp last week. Miller profiles exactly like you'd expect a Seahawk outside linebacker to profile, boasting 4.44 speed at 6'0, 237 ponds. Miller registered a 37.5" vertical jump at his pro day, along with a 6.99 3-cone drill, a 4.25 short shuttle, and a 10'10" broad jump, all elite-level numbers for a linebacker.

Unsurprisingly, Miller was third in our pSPARQ rating tracking, behind only Ryan Shazier and Kevin Pierre-Louis (who the Seahawks took in the fourth round) in this year's Draft.

Miller originally started at Louisville and played in 11 games as a true freshman before transferring to UTEP. Prior to the Draft, he said the Ravens were looking at him closely and they liked him, and he said his speed was one thing that separates him from the field.

"Speed helps you a lot in any position as far as football goes. It's more than just speed. It's my ability. I can adapt and I'm able to make an impact. Maybe not a drastic immediate impact, but an impact where a team would be satisfied. I can put my hand in the dirt (and rush the quarterback) still and, of course, I can play in space and help in coverage. I'm not one-dimensional. I would love to play on special teams and help the team to win any way I can."

Miller fills the final spot on the 90-man roster, for now. It's likely that things will shuffle even more over the next few weeks and the Seahawks will rotate in new guys at the bottom of the roster to get a look at more players and build out their list of potential practice squad and developmental candidates.
