Ohio State quarterback turned wide receiver Braxton Miller is one of the most dynamic playmakers in the 2016 NFL Draft class. In a recent analysis of the Buckeyes star’s draft stock, ESPN’s Matt Bowen said that he heard Miller was being compared to Percy Harvin in scouting circles at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.
“We are talking about a dynamic player,” Bowen wrote. “But Miller has a much bigger pro frame and plays with a noticeable toughness on the field. This isn’t a ‘gadget’ guy in the playbook. Nah, he’s a true football player.”
Because of Miller’s ability and experience at multiple positions, there are a number of ways that he can contribute at the next level which seems to excite everyone.
“Given his experience playing quarterback in college, smart organizations will use Miller as a No. 3 quarterback on the gameday roster, design specific schemes for him on two-point opportunities (QB-designed runs) and get him the ball in a variety of ways,” he added.
Miller is currently projected as a Day 2 pick.
It will be interesting to see when Miller is drafted and where he lands. Regardless of where it is, it appears as though Miller will be a valuable tool for the lucky offensive coordinator who gets to work with him.
