NFL Draft: Film review of Ohio State WR Braxton Miller

Breaking Burgundy Analyst Paul Conner shares his scouting notes on quarterback turned playmaking wide receiver

Breaking Burgundy's Film Analyst Paul Conner will be in the lab crunching film on college prospects up until the 2016 NFL Draft. He will be sharing his notes on each player he watches throughout the process. 

Braxton Miller

Position: Wide Receiver

College: Ohio State

Height: 6'2"

Weight: 215

Age: 23

(Analysis of games vs. Rutgers and Virginia Tech)

Positives: Braxton Miller is your 2016 swiss army knife. He's played Quarterback, he's taken hand offs, played as a receiver on the outside and in the slot. The first thing you notice about Miller is his speed. He also has good agility, making people miss in the open field. He has displayed some decent hands, making catches while fully extending. He is already making an impact at the position and it's only his first year playing there. 

Concerns: Miller is obviously very raw having just moved to wide receiver. He is going to have to learn more of the nuances of the position. Miller is going to need to find a way to implement his speed and acceleration into his route running.

 

If drafted by Redskins: Redskins could use more depth at the receiver position. Hopefully, Jamison Crowder will avoid another wall in his second year and the Redskins will have their slot position filled for the future. Even though Miller is 6'2" and 215 lbs, he wasn't used on the outside often, but if he shows he has that ability, he will appeal himself to more teams.
