Fred David Miller (born August 8, 1940 in Homer, Louisiana) was an American football defensive tackle in the National Football League from 1963 through 1972. During that span he appeared in Super Bowl III and Super Bowl V for the Baltimore Colts. He played college football at Louisiana State University.

Miller was born in Homer, Louisiana on August 8, 1940.[1] His father was a sharecropper.[2]

He graduated from Homer High School in his hometown in 1958.[2] A four-year football letterman, he mostly played center and tackle and was a starter in his last three years at the school.

With both the National Football League (NFL) and American Football League (AFL) competing against each other to acquire the best available talent, Miller was picked in both drafts in 1962. He was selected by the NFL's Baltimore Colts in the 7th round (93rd overall) and the AFL's Oakland Raiders in the 26th round (201st overall).[3][4] He eventually signed with the Colts.
