Former Ohio State quarterback-turned-wide receiver Braxton Miller has turned a lot of heads over the past month with his strong abilities at the latter position, and the future NFL Draft selection took to Twitter to thank someone in particular for helping him train for the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine.
That someone is former Buckeyes wide receiver and Hall of Famer Cris Carter, and Miller offered serious thanks in his post.
Miller appeared in 13 games last season and had 25 catches for 340 yards and three touchdowns, primarily as a slot receiver. Those numbers may seem low, but Miller showed tremendous improvement and fine physical abilities at the position at last month’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.
Miller has also made it clear that his goal for the combine is to run a sub-4.3 40, quite the goal for anyone participating in the event.
Given how Carter played 16 NFL seasons and pulled in 1,101 catches for 13,899 yards and 130 touchdowns, I’m liking Miller’s chances.
