Hagelin was a mature, polished prospect after four years at Michigan--and had one extremely valuable asset, blinding speed. Kreider had tremendous natural ability, and despite not being polished, could get by on that alone. Miller is neither polished nor blessed with an abundance of raw talent, so I think it's fair to assume he'll need some seasoning in the minors first.

Who knows though...some guys are built for the professional game and flourish when pushed. Maybe Miller is one of them.
