Scouting Report: ASU's Jamal Miles

Jamal Miles
WR/KR, Arizona State (Junior)
5-10, 185 lbs.

Versatility, excellent speed and burst. Elusive in the open field. Good hands. Can make multiple defenders miss in space. Good route runner who can get clear separation at the break. Homerun threat any time he touches the ball.

Right now much more productive as a returner than a pass receiver. Lacks real good size. Hands are good, not great. Tends to double catch at times. Not a physical blocker downfield.

This player is a dynamic return man who is always dangerous with the ball in his hands. Has scored four different ways this season - kickoff return, punt return, passing, receiving - and is the only player in the nation to do so. Had a 78-yard punt return TD which is the first for a Sun Devil in 6 years. Has the ability to hit a crease and accelerate quickly. Can make multiple defenders miss on one play. He should be utilized more in the passing game due to his speed and hands. He lacks ideal size but makes up for it with speed and quickness. Has impacted every game this season and gives the Sun Devils a major big play threat in both the return game and passing game.
