Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller underwent surgery on his right shoulder on Friday.
We never like to see quarterbacks have trouble with their throwing shoulders, but Miller's procedure was minor. The Buckeyes' star will be limited in spring practices and is questionable to play in April's spring game, though he should be totally healthy for training camp in the summer. Although Miller missed almost three full games due to a sprained knee, he threw for 2,094 yards and ran for 1,068 yards in 2013. Miller was given a mid- to late-round selection from the NFL's advisory board before deciding to return for his senior campaign. Feb 22 - 5:58 PM

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller will return to school for his senior season, according to his father.

Miller's meeting with Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer on Thursday went well, so he informed the coach that he'll be sticking around for another campaign. Although Miller missed almost three full games due to a sprained knee, he threw for 2,094 yards and ran for 1,068 yards in 2013. The Columbus Dispatch reported that Miller was given a mid- to late-round selection from the NFL's advisory board.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller will return to school for his final season, according to SI's Pete Thamel.

Miller had been weighing his options for quite some time, leading some to believe he wanted to leave for the draft but was getting advice to stay. Miller did not have a very impressive bowl game against Clemson, and although he has improved as a passer this year he still has a long way to go.
Jan 4 - 5:56 PM

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller completed 16 of 24 attempts for 234 passing yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 40-35 loss to Clemson in the Orange Bowl.

He ran for 35 yards and a pair of TDs on 18 carries. It was Miller's fourth career game with two or more touchdowns through both the air and on the ground; the only two active players with more are Jordan Lynch and Johnny Manziel, both of whom are expected to spend next season in the pros. Miller will announce his draft intentions over the next few days.
Jan 4 - 12:59 AM

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller told reporters he thinks he is ready for the NFL.

We should note that Miller has not declared for the draft, but every one of his comments seems to point to that direction. At least initially. Miller added that staying and working under Urban Meyer for another season would improve his game. It appears as if Miller wants to enter, but is receiving advice suggesting otherwise.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller potentially declaring for May's draft is "at the top of the mind with both the kid and the people around there," according to an NFL scout.

The underclassmen deadline to enter the draft is Jan. 15, 2014. The scout quoted believes that Miller could go as high as the second round if he declares early. "He's not a project," the scout said. "He's not a Tim Tebow-type player. But at the same time when you look at the throwing talent of other guys that are going to be in this class, he's not in the top tier either. He's got functional arm strength. He's probably in the middle 50 percent of arm strength that you see in the NFL. ... His accuracy has a lot of room for improvement."

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller completed eight of 21 attempts for 101 yards and a touchdown in the school's 34-24 loss to Michigan State.

Miller did rush for 142 yards and two touchdowns but failed to convert specific passing situations when it mattered. Michigan State's defense is legit, and they also halted the Buckeyes ground attack and a few important short yardage situations. We hope Miller does not declare for the draft. He isn't ready as a passer.

Miller added 153 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He has improved this season, but even his head coach believes Miller isn't ready for the NFL. We expect Miller to return for his final season next year.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said junior QB Braxton Miller is not ready for the NFL, "yet."

Meyer did say Miller has the skill set to be a quarterback at the next level, but it isn't his time yet. Miller has definitely improved this season in terms of working through specific reads and displaying better timing, but there is still a ways to go. We expect him to return for his final season.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller completed 19 of 23 attempts for 233 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception in the school's 56-0 win over Purdue.

Miller wasn't asked to play the entire game, as Ohio State took a large lead early and held it for the rest of the game. Miller has drawn praise from his head coach in recent weeks, saying the junior has transformed from an athlete to a quarterback.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer believes junior Braxton Miller "is officially a quarterback now."

"He wasn't last year," Meyer said on his radio show. It's a telling compliment for Miller's head coach, but there have certainly been flashes of high level quarterback play from the junior this season. It can be tough to harness an athlete and turn him in to a quarterback, but Miller should have another season of progression next year.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller completed 15 of 26 attempts for 203 yards and an interception in a 40-30 comeback win over Northwestern.

Miller added 68 rushing yards but also fumbled twice. Senior Kenny Guiton, who filled in for an injured Miller this season, was seen warming up on the sideline but never entered the game. Head coach urban Meyer changed the focus of the offense from Miller to running back Carlos Hyde in the second half, and it paid off.
