Braxton Miller finished in the top 10 of Heisman Trophy voting twice at quarterback, but two shoulder injuries forced a position change. With a spin move on prime-time TV against Virginia Tech, he announced himself as a legitimate wide receiver prospect.
Miller followed up a promising season with a dominant performance at the 2016 Senior Bowl. His burst, athleticism and even his hands had scouts stopping what they were doing to watch him work. Miller was far and away the most impressive skill-position player in Mobile for the week of practices.
As Miller transitioned to wide receiver, he showed natural hands and a toughness at the position. On the year we counted just one dropped pass, and watching Miller attack the field with the ball in his hands showed his hunger for yards.
There will be questions about what Miller can do versus what he was asked to do at Ohio State. Playing in the H-back role for the Buckeyes, Miller saw the ball come his way on designed plays like handoffs on jet sweeps and short passes on screen plays. His ability to separate in one-on-one situations is untested.
Miller has exceptional speed and quickness, but that hasn't yet translated to route-running ability. He'll take two steps when he needs one, and his cuts to the middle of the field are often rounded. Learning the details of the position will take time and dedication.
Two shoulder injuries in his past are question marks for Miller now as a ball-carrier. Can he take the pounding of 10-12 hits per game without shoulder issues?
