The Houston Texans Draft Ohio State's, Braxton Miller

The Houston Texans select Braxton Miller in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Houston Texans have selected wide receiver Braxton Miller with their third round selection. Miller has been on the Texans radar for sometime dating all the way back to the Senior Bowl. Coach Bill O'Brien even took a trip to Columbus, Ohio to see Miller at the Ohio State pro-day. The Texans had a private workout with Miller around Easter coming away impressed with Miller and his skill set. 

Miller is a converted quarterback that played his final season with the Buckeyes as a wide receiver. He caught 25 passes for 340 yards and three touchdowns and rushed the ball 43 times for 261 yards and a touchdown.

His athletic ability is not in question after being selected at the Big 10 Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 and 2013. With only playing one real season at wide receiver, seeing if Miller can keep progressing at the position is the biggest question heading to the NFL Draft.
