Round 4: Brandon Miller, C/OF, Samford

(Associated Press via The Citizen)

Samford Bio

Sean's one sentence analysis: Miller's upside is higher than a typical senior sign, but his floor is lower as well; with an excellent power/arm combination, he could turn into a solid ML catcher if he improve his technique behind the plate.

Pre-draft rankings:
#314 on Baseball America's top 500

Thoughts from the community:
Miller was previosly drafted by the Red Sox (33rd round, 2008) and the Nationals (48th round, 2010) and has played at Georgia Tech and Northwest Florida CC before as well.

"(Miller) has two plus tools with righthanded power...and a 65 arm on the 20-80 scouting scale. He's made more contact this spring but isn't a big bet to hit for average." - Baseball America

"A redraft out of JUCO, he has middle of the lineup power,” Eric Robinson, Area Supervisor for the Southeast region, said, via the @NationalsPR Twitter feed. “Miller is a versatile catcher who profiles both at [right field] and [catcher]. Great makeup. His profile reminds me of our own Tyler Moore.” - Mike Fiametta,, 6/5/12

"Outfielder Brandon Miller could be an interesting pick given his impressive raw power. He has a right-field profile both offensively and defensively and the Nats could push him quickly through the system because of his refined approach to the game." - Mark Anderson, Baseball Prospect Nation, 6/11/12

"Miller has some decent raw power and profiles as a right fielder at the next level." - Coast 2 Coast Prospects Nationals draft review

According to Baseball America's draft database, Miller signed for $100k; his slotted amount was $311,700.
