As a freshman, Braxton Miller exceeded the high expectations set before him last year. The young QB threw for a solid 13 touchdowns, but also managed to only throw four interceptions. His throws were inconsistent, but he showed potential in terms of a passer.
Also, Miller was stuck in an ineffective offense that often didn't put him in the best position to succeed through the air. Meyer's system should only increase the threat of Miller's arm, which will do wonders for the quarterback's production.
Not to mention, Miller is one of the most dangerous running quarterbacks in the nation, and this was on full display throughout the 2011 season. The product out of Huber Heights ran for an impressive 715 yards and seven touchdowns. Meyer's offensive style is most potent when the QB is at least an effective runner, and Miller is exceptional in that regard.
Most importantly, Meyer needs his field general to be a leader and a gamer. Miller proved his clutch gene several times last year with big, late-game scoring drives against Wisconsin and Purdue, along with a stellar performance against the Buckeyes' arch-rivals.
Backing up the sophomore-to-be will most likely be red-shirt junior Kenny Guiton. Guiton is a more-than-capable backup and has the ability to move the ball with his feet as well as his arm, which should fit well with the new offense.
However, don't be surprised if incoming freshman Cardale Jones makes a push for the second spot in the depth chart, although I don't see this happening.
