Ohio State senior WR Braxton Miller is being stopped for a loss or no gain at an alarming rate, beat writer Bill Landis points out.
To put it in perspective, 14 of Miller's 57 touches have been stopped for a loss or no gain. That is 25 percent. Miller has caught 22 passes and run the ball 35 times this year after converting from quarterback. We still think he looks more natural than expected when asked to be a true receiver, but Ohio State is still attempting to manufacture touches for the playmaker. Nov 17 - 11:06 AM

Ohio State senior WR Braxton Miller is "good to go" versus Illinois despite suffering a neck injury against Minnesota.

Head coach Urban Meyer said Miller's neck was a bit sore following a hit at the end of a 45-yard catch. The stats might not back it up, but we think Miller has produced a solid first season at receiver. Thus far, Miller has caught 20 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns. Ohio State's inefficient offense, namely at quarterback, has held back other skill position players.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that "there's no question" that senior WR Braxton Miller will be the backup to Cardale Jones against Minnesota on Saturday.

With J.T. Barrett serving a one-game suspension for an alleged alcohol-related arrest, Cardale Jones will start versus Minnesota on Saturday. This isn't surprising. What's more interesting is who would be next up on the chart. Said HC Urban Meyer on Monday, "As of right now, there's no question [Braxton Miller]'s our No. 2 quarterback." It's unlikely Miller takes snaps at quarterback against Minnesota on Saturday, but the Gophs offer a stout defense and came within a completely botched end-game of beating Michigan on Saturday. It wouldn't be a shock if Cardale Jones started out slowly against them, at which point, a mini-hurricane of in-game speculation would ensue.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer expects senior WR Braxton Miller to "run a sub-4.4 at the combine."

"He will run a sub-4.4 at the combine, and show he's a really competitive guy. He'll knock it out," Meyer told NFL's College Football 24/7. The Buckeyes prospect has definitely impressed this season during his switch to wideout, hauling in 19 receptions for 280 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Dual threat has also rushed for 207 yards on the ground with 1 score, averaging 6.9 yards per carry. If Miller can prove that he's a burner his stock is bound to rise.

Ohio State senior WR Braxton Miller caught five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in the school's 49-28 win over Maryland.

Miller's top highlight was a diving grab where he looked like a natural receiver. This was his best game since the season opener, easily. The Buckeyes tried to get him more yards on the ground on three carries. We are excited to see his play for the rest of the year.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer wants to get WR Braxton Miller more involved in the offense.

Miller produced 140 yards in the season opener, but since has turned 22 touches into 123 total yards. Meyer concedes that the defense dictates where the ball goes, but added Miller "deserves touches. He's an electric player with the ball in his hand. We just have not got him loose the last couple of games." Miller looked like a natural receiver in the season opener and not just a manufactured touch player.

As Bruce Feldman points out, Ohio State senior WR Braxton Miller has only produced 123 total yards on 22 touches in the school's last four games.

Miller racked up 140 yards in the opener against Virginia Tech, leading many to say he looked comfortable at receiver. The fact is that this was true: Miller was hand catching targets at multiple levels and was far from a manufactured touch player. We would suggest that Miller's statistical struggles aren't solely on him and more about the offense as a whole (outside of Ezekiel Elliott).

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller did not record a catch against NIU and took four carries for just seven yards.

He added one pass for three yards. Miller has not been the week one playmaker over the last two games. To put it in perspective. Miller totaled 140 receiving/rushing yards in week one and only 80 in weeks two and three combined. The Buckeyes struggled offensively against Hawaii despite what the score reads, and obviously had issues Saturday against NIU.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said Braxton Miller is getting closer to being able to throw passes in games.

"You might potentially see a pass with him this week" Meyer told reporters. This might be the truth, an attempt at reverse psychology, or reverse reverse psychology. In tow games, Miller has caught five passes for 95 yards and a touchdown and 118 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

All four of the targets Ohio State senior WR Braxton Miller saw in the game against Virginia Tech were 20-plus yards downfield, according to CFB Film Room.

The people at CFB Film Room suggest Miller could be the planned replacement for Devin Smith in terms of vertical targets. It is definitely possibly, however, Miller is technically a slot receiver in Ohio State's scheme. Three receivers were suspended for the opener, but expect Miller to stay in the starting lineup and on the field. As we saw against Virginia Tech, Miller is most dangerous with the ball in his hands.

Ohio State graduate WR Braxton Miller called the reaction to his highlight-reel spin move against Virginia Tech "a cool thing."

Miller jokingly claimed that he didn't have the Internet or cable when asked about the reaction to the video game-esque spin move he pulled on a 53-yard touchdown run in the third quarter of Monday's win over Virginia Tech. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound graduate athlete also spoke more seriously about his recovery from injury. "It was devastating what happened to my shoulder [last year]," said Miller "and stuff like that, and all the emotion that's hit me, just being back up there with the guys and making plays and high-fiving with everyone on the sideline, it just felt like I didn't miss a beat." He added that he felt blessed to be able to play football again. During Monday's game, Miller caught a 54-yard touchdown from Cardale Jones in addition to spinning his way into multiple Internet Vines.

According to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler, "[NFL] teams will have some interesting debates on how high they should draft [Ohio State graduate WR Braxton Miller].

Miller could be the most explosive offensive player in college football. One need to look no further than the 6-foot-2, 215-pound graduate's game against Virginia Tech on Monday. On eight touches, he produced 140 total yards and two touchdowns. His chances at a possible Heisman--not to mention a high selection in the draft--will likely hinge on two factors: Health, and his development as a pure receiver. The second factor is the more interesting of the two. There's no denying Miller's athleticism and ability, but his ability to transition into a true, well-rounded receiver is not a given.

Ohio State graduate WR Braxton Miller went into the Matrix in Monday's 42-24 win over Virginia Tech, rushing six times for 62 yards and a touchdown while also catching two passes for 78 yards and a score.

Miller might have only touched the ball eight total times, but he flashed his typical smooth athleticism in making several highlight-reel plays. His third quarter, 54-yard touchdown catch was impressive enough, but the play that melted Twitter was a 53-yard scoring run later in the third. Miller took the ball to the left and then spun through a would-be tackle as though he was in a video game before racing to paydirt. Because he's still raw as a receiver, there's room to grow here. This should be a flat-out terrifying prospect for Big Ten defensive coordinators.

Ohio State graduate WR Braxton Miller "remains one of the best athletes in the college game" despite his position change, wrote NFL Media analyst Chase Goodbread.

The draft analysts at are counting down the Top-20 players in college football and Miller slotted in at No. 15. Bucky Brooks called him the "most explosive player in college football with the ball in his hands." It's easy to remember Miller's spectacular offensive showings that led to the former quarterback being named Big 10 Player of the Year twice, but he hasn't played a snap since 2013. Perhaps the most interesting comment any of the experts made came from Gil Brandt, who tweeted that given his build, the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder's best position in the NFL might be running back.

Ohio State graduate Braxton Miller has been added to the Senior Bowl watch list as a wide receiver.

While the Buckeyes' wideout will mostly be utilized in a hybrid role this season, Miller's versatile skill-set could be on full display at the Senior Bowl, if he accepts his invitation. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Miller has the ideal size and athleticism that NFL scouts look for at the next level. The Buckeye prospect will most likely carve out a Percy Harvin/Aaron Hernandez type role in Urban Meyer's offense this season.
