15. Fred Miller, OL, Round 5, Pick 141 Overall, 1996

Miller, a mountain of a man at 6-foot-7 and 320 pounds, was a late selection by the Rams in the fifth round of the 1996 draft, and though the front office obviously didn’t realize it at the time, he’d go on to be the second-best offensive lineman that the franchise has ever drafted.

After Miller sat and learned the ropes during his rookie season, he got seven starts in 1997. Miller jumped into the Rams’ lineup full-time as the starting left guard in 1998, and after Zach Wiegert was released following that season, Miller became the team’s right tackle for 1999. He was part of a fantastic offensive line that year that helped the Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” offense to reach historic levels, and he started every game for the only St. Louis Rams team that’s ever won a Super Bowl.

Miller earned his money in free agency after the ’99 season, signing with the Tennessee Titans. He’d go on to play nine more seasons for the Titans and Chicago Bears.
