The 2023 NFL Draft is a month away, and the next few weeks will be crucial for players looking to increase their draft stock. One name to watch is TCU Horned Frogs running back Kendre Miller, who suffered an MCL injury during the CFP victory against the Michigan Wolverines. However, all signs are trending up with Miller ahead of schedule despite missing his Pro Day, as reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Texas RB Bijan Robinson is far and away the top at his position in this class, but with Kendre Miller on schedule, he could make his way up draft boards a bit. With the NFL Draft a few weeks away, it will be worth monitoring Miller’s status as he tries to move up draft boards.
