Fred David Miller (born August 8, 1940) was an American football defensive tackle in the National Football League from 1963 through 1972. During that span, he appeared in 3 world championship games for the Baltimore Colts: the 1964 NFL championship game against the Browns, Super Bowl III against the Jets, and Super Bowl V against the Cowboys. He played college football at Louisiana State University.
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). He eventually signed with the Colts.
