Scott Boras is his advisor and I don't think there's any doubt he'd be the #1 overall pick if he'd agree to a pre-draft deal with the Royals. I'm sure Boras will toss out all sorts of crazy numbers, but, as chili noted in the stickied draft thread, Miller supposedly regrets ever having gone to college in the first place and is itching to get into the pros. That sounds like a kid whose price is negotiable to me.
The clandestine injury speculation strikes me as little more than teams trying to innoculate themselves against the question of why they let a kid with that much talent slip past them.
