“I think it’s really cool because I’ve looked up to these people a lot of my life. I’m a big sports guy, so I think it’s just an awesome opportunity to be able to pick their brains a little bit.”

Miller said he was planning on asking about this year’s rookie class and wanted to get Van Pelt’s opinion.
