Ohio State quarterback-turned wide receiver is turning a lot of heads at the Senior Bowl this week, so much that three NFL teams are considering drafting him in the second round of the upcoming NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net.
Told right now the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots & KC Chiefs like Braxton Miller/WR/Ohio State in round two.

Each of those teams would be an intriguing spot for Miller. Pittsburgh is pretty stacked at wideout with Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant, but only Brown is truly a strong route-runner out of that that trio and adding Miller would make offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s attack all the more dangerous next season.
In the case of Kansas City, the team simply needs a strong wise receiver opposite Jeremy Maclin.
But then there’s New England, a team where practically everybody seems to do well. Given how the Patriots’ top receiver, Julian Edelman, is also a former college quarterback, perhaps Miller could make that offense all the more unpredictable.
Either way, though these teams are aiming to pick Miller in the second round, don’t be shocked if he inches up into first round territory following a strong performance this weekend and at next month’s NFL Scouting Combine!
