Video: Braxton Miller is speedy even with weighted sled

There’s no doubt that after a strong Senior Bowl performance, in practice and the game itself, Ohio State quarterback-turned-wide receiver Braxton Miller’s name is rocketing up NFL Draft big boards. Based on a recent drill Miller did with a weighted sled, the odds of him running the 40-yard dash in less than 4.28 seconds seems perfectly realistic.

Video of Miller’s weighted sled workout was posted to Twitter by former Buckeye and Hall of Famer Cris Carter.

Miller is working out with famed combine trainer Tony Villani and based on how well he performed during drills at the Senior Bowl, he isn’t just another workout warrior. No matter how one may spin it, he has a bright future as an NFL receiver, even if he only had 25 catches for 340 yards and three touchdowns in his final season in Columbus.

Needless to say, despite the fact that this year’s draft class could wind up being pretty deep at receiver, it’s going to be hard to justify not selecting Miller if his speed at the combine WITHOUT a weighted sled is as great as it is reported to be.
