Dallas Cowboys Round 4, Pick 117: Kendre Miller, RB

There have been links between the Dallas Cowboys and Kendre Miller from the jump. The two sides have met for extended periods of time and seem to be a strong match.

Dallas needs a running back at some point in the draft and this season the options are rich in the draft. Finding someone to pair with Tony Pollard is critical because Pollard isn’t someone they want to bog down and best used in a tandem of sorts.

Pollard also may leave after the season so getting someone who can do more than just fill in a gaps behind TP is ideal. So many options make sense here for the Cowboys but the breadcrumbs keep leading to Kendre Miller


The 5-foot-11, 215 pound Texas product played at TCU. Last season he racked up over 1,300 yards rushing and 17 TDs. He has good power and contact balance making for a good short-yardage back. His pad level is a little high so he’ll have to work on that to have the same success in the pros.

Miller is untested in the passing game. Wasn’t targeted much as a pass catcher so his hands are a question. His pass pro is also somewhat undetermined so there’s a reason he’s slipped in the draft. But he has lead running back ability and can complement Tony Pollard’s game in 2023 so he makes a lot of sense here for the Cowboys.
