Les Miles to be draft analyst for NFL Network

Zach Mettenberger, Les Miles AP

Les Miles may be an oddball — and sometimes he doesn’t know when to just be quiet — but he and his staff know recruiting and talent when  they see it.

Now, Miles will get an opportunity to showcase that as a draft analyst for NFL Network. LSU’s sports information department confirmed that Miles will serve as an analyst for the broadcast of the draft on its final day, April 28, and will be featured in interviews on the first two days. Miles will work alongside Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin.

LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne had already invited Miles to accompany him to the draft. Claiborne is expected to be a top 10 pick. defensive tackle Michael Brockers and wide receiver Rueben Randle could also be selected in the first round.

    This is the same clown who gave the NFL JaMarcus “Purple Drank” Russell

    I bet he manages to work in a shot or two at gunner Kiel. Miles is a joke

    They could get Kiffin from USC, Tressel from Ohio State, Richt from Georgia, anyone other than Miles.

    Few, if any, LSU players have panned out in the NFL lately, why use Miles then?

    They surely weren’t going to ask Petrino, even before he got caught with his pants down.

    Good…Miles can let everyone know if each player has the chest to play in the complicated schemes…

    Why? The guy is clueless! Is he going to talk about how not to get past the 50 yard line?

    You sir are clueless. At least google it before you open your mouth and prove your ignorance.

    It’s “Wonderlic” (capitalized and with no “k” at the end), idiot Big Ten graduate (if you did even graduate).

    Besides, since 2000, the NFL has been relying on former Iowa (Big Ten) running back Darren Davis to tell us all how to get a “4” on the Wonderlic.

    No, but he IS going to educate UGA fans on how to win a BCS title.

    They’ll have to use the “Minnie Driver” camera for his hat.

    @dryzzt23 …

    I think JaMarcus Russell played for Saban at LSU.

  14. Deb says: Apr 12, 2012 7:03 PM

    I’ve got no problem with Miles, but Michael Irvin kinda gives me a headache. However, I’ll be there with Eisen and Mayock.

    @stairwayto7 …

    We’ve got more pressing needs at o-line, but it would be Christmas in April if some miracle happened and we would up with Morris Claiborne and his 4 on the Wonderlic.

    Thank you Deb.
    And they think people in the South are dumb, they can’t even get a one liner hater’s comment right.

    You have to admit, Miles is entertaining if nothing else.I’m with you Deb , Irving gets old really fast but I like Eisen, Mayock and Mariucci. I always look forward to watching the draft.

    Guess they are getting Miles for color commentary along with some insight on the appropriateness of individual players fitting into the teams which draft them. If Spurrier and Leach were not available, Miles is an entertaining choice.

    We may need an “urban” or similar dictionary to understand many things he says, but many will watch the draft coverage on NFL Network now that dismissed it in previous seasons, and after all that is what they wanted in the first place.
