It is difficult to say what is most impressive about Rontez Miles. The 6-1, 210-pound defensive back out of Cal-PA seems to be the full package. He has the heart, attitude, and athletic ability—with a staggering amount of awards and titles to prove it—and the National Football League has taken notice.
