  • Kendre Miller Misses Rookie OTAs

    Headshot for Kendre Miller

    New Orleans Saints running back Kendre Miller (knee) was unable to participate in rookie OTAs. This is unsurprising news considering Miller tore his meniscus in January. The TCU product hasn't been cleared for rookie workouts. Despite the injury, New Orleans decided to select Miller in the third round of this year's draft. The 20-year-old rushed for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns with TCU last season. The expectation is that Miller is going to be able to carve out a legitimate role alongside Alvin Kamara. It remains to be seen how the Saints decide to split up playing time. Regardless, Miller is expected to be 100 percent healthy by the time the preseason rolls around.

  • Kendre Miller Not Expected To Miss Training Camp

    New Orleans Saints head coach Dennis Allen said he doesn't expect rookie running back Kendre Miller (knee) to miss any of training camp in the second half of July. Allen didn't clarify when Miller could get back on the field, but it's a good sign he isn't slated to miss any of the all-important training camp practices. Miller was selected in the third round by New Orleans after a fantastic season with TCU. The 20-year-old rushed for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns for the National Champion runner-ups. However, Miller suffered a knee injury in the College Football Playoff semifinals and wasn't able to participate in on-field work during the pre-draft process.

  • Kendre Miller Has Plenty Of Upside

    New Orleans Saints assistant general manager Jeff Ireland said rookie running back Kendre Miller has "huge upside." The Saints took Miller in the third round of this year's NFL draft, and he could have a pretty sizeable role in his first season with Alvin Kamara likely to draw some sort of suspension to kick off the 2023 season. The 20-year-old had 1399 yards and 17 touchdowns on 224 carries for TCU on the way to the National Championship game. Miller doesn't have a lot of pass-catching skills, but he should be relevant in single-year leagues if Kamara is suspended at some point. "It all goes back to height, weight and speed. Loved his running style. He's a down-hill runner, runs with great pad level. He's got explosive breakaway speed in the open field. He's creative. He makes people miss. And we just felt like, man, this is too good to be true," Ireland said.

  • Saints Add Kendre Miller To Backfield

    Headshot for Alvin Kamara

    The New Orleans Saints selected running back Kendre Miller out of TCU with the No. 71 overall pick in the third round of the 2023 NFL draft on Friday night. With Alvin Kamara facing a possible suspension, it makes sense for the team to add depth, even after signing Jamaal Williams in free agency. Miller will have a shot to compete as the backup, and could take over pass-catching duties while Kamara is out, making him an interesting player to stash.

  • Kendre Miller Meeting With Lions Wednesday

    Headshot for Kendre Miller

    Texas Christian University running back Kendre Miller (knee) is finishing up a third straight week of top-30 visits by meeting with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday, according to a source. The star running back also visited with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Carolina Panthers earlier in the week. He has also spent time with the Buffalo Bills, New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals. The 20-year-old was extremely productive for the Horned Frogs in 2022, running for 1,399 yards and 17 touchdowns while catching 16 passes for 116 yards. He's ahead of schedule while recovering from a right MCL injury, and it's unlikely to affect his draft stock. Detroit's backfield will become very convoluted if they add Miller to an RB room that already includes D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery.
