RHS alumnus drafted by Oakland Raiders


(COURTESY/CHAD MILLER) Kolton Miller blocks a defensive end in the optimist game during his senior season at Roseville High School. Miller attended RHS for four years and spent two years at American River junior college before attending UCLA.


On April 26, the Oakland Raiders selected Roseville High School alumnus Kolton MIller in the 15 pick of the first round in the NFL draft. Miller graduated from Roseville High School in 2014 and then continued his football career at UCLA.

Miller, a towering 6’8, 310 pound offensive and defensive tackle here at RHS, continued his career as an offensive tackle in college. Miller declared for the NFL draft as a junior in college and was the second offensive tackle picked.

Miller was accompanied by his family, including his brother, Chad Miller, a freshman at Roseville High School. While at the draft, Chad experienced first hand what he had typically just watched online.

“It was really crazy,” Chad said. “Every time the commissioner would come out, the stadium would shake.”
