NFL Draft 2016: Braxton Miller not a top 50 prospect?

One player that has helped his draft stock tremendously since the end of the college football season is former Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller. He has been showing off his skills as of late and it looks like he has impressed a number of NFL scouts and draft analysts.

However, one person that doesn’t seem too impressed is CBSSports’ Dane Brugler. He recently listed out his top 50 players available in the Draft this April and one player that isn’t on that list is Miller.

There are some notable names at the wide receiver position on the list like Pharoh Cooper, Sterling Shepard, and Rashard Higgins. With the offseasons Miller has had, like impressing everyone at the Senior Bowl in January, it’s hard to believe that Miller wouldn’t be taken early on in the second round.

This is likely not an oversight by Brugler, but it is interesting to see where he will actually stand once the draft draws closer in the coming weeks. It could be the position change that did it for Brugler, but Miller showed he is versatile at any position.

Over his career at Ohio State, Miller has ran for over 3,300 yards and 33 touchdowns.

Last year, he caught 25 passes for 340 yards and three touchdowns.

He may still have a little work to do, but you can’t deny his athleticism and that will likely land him an early Day 2 draft spot.
