Former Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller has been drawing a ton of praise at the Senior Bowl this week in Mobile, Alabama and it has even led to some teams putting a second-round grade on him. He seems to have a pretty lofty goal for when he heads up to Indianapolis for the Draft Combine.
He talked with reporters about what he wants to do at the Combine in late February. He said the main thing he wants to focus on is getting his 40-yard dash time down to one of the lowest in Combine history.
“Absolutely. It’s going to be a low 4.3 (seconds),” Miller told the Dallas Morning News. “I like to set goals for myself, I don’t know if it will come true or not, but I want to run a 4.28. I feel like I’m capable of it because I ran a 4.36 when I was 215 (pounds) playing quarterback. I had bad eating habits too, so now I’m on a strict diet, working out, training hard, weighing 204, so hopefully. We’ll see.”
Only five players have ran a sub-4.3 40 in Combine history with the fastest being Chris Johnson’s 4.24 in 2008. Miller’s goal would tie him with DeMarcus Van Dyke and Jacoby Ford for the fifth-fastest all time.
