According to Geoff Coyle with the University of West Virginia sports site WVIllustrated.com as well as WVMH-TV, Mountaineer defensive lineman Julian Miller signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, becoming Cincinnati's first undrafted free agent.

ESPN's Scout Inc service ranks Miller as the 32nd-best prospect at defensive end (including the players drafted) and the eighth-best among undrafted free agent defensive ends.

They write of his pass rushing skills.

Initial quickness is slightly above average and showed effective speed-to-power moves. Better hand fighter rushing the passer than is defending the run. Knocked offensive tackle's hands down as worked upfield. Flashed ability to turn corner but doesn't bend back inside as well as elite pass rushers and closing speed is just average. Looked to strip the ball when got to the quarterback but slipped off would-be sack on more than one occasion.

Scout Inc also praises his instincts and motor:

Kept head up and located ball quickly more times than not. Tracked quarterback and got hands up in passing lanes when saw him start throwing motion. Would not characterize as relentless but made some plays with second effort.
