Braxton Miller could be climbing up draft boards with Senior Bowl workouts
Braxton Miller might be the most high-profile player at the Senior Bowl.
A few days into practices, that doesn’t appear to have changed.
The converted Ohio State quarterback was on display for the scouts and media members wanting to get a closer look at him playing what is still a relatively new position. Miller didn’t give them a ton of tape this season playing receiver, which he said was a product of being “underutilized.”
But so far at Senior Bowl practices, Miller has impressed.
A variety of media members/analysts took to Twitter to share their thoughts about Miller’s development:
Watching North WR's go thru individual drills @seniorbowl and Braxton Miller (OSU) has plenty of growth left, but he can be special IMHO

Colts fans, don't freak out. No harm in merely talking to Braxton Miller. Plus, I love this kid's confidence: https://t.co/2wcVkDlIrz

Tavon Young just got DUSTED on a fade from @BraxtonMiller5. Gave him a shoulder dip and exploded up field.

When it comes to athletes at North practice, it's Braxton Miller and then everyone else. He's clearly a step above #SeniorBowl

When Miller takes the field on Saturday, he’ll certainly have plenty of eyes on him. The physical talents have never been in question with Miller. His two B1G Player of the Year honors are proof of that.
The question will be whether or not he can get enough targets to match the high expectations his workouts set.
