Hali and Doom are comparable players who just play in different fronts. Miller is an all around more disruptive player than Doom on the same squad.
I've been involved in several "discussions" on the merits of each team's pass rushers on ChiefsPlanet, and I very much enjoy posting this:
Obviously the Miller and Houston numbers are subject to change by a lot since they have only played one season.
