Despite OSU senior Braxton Miller earning a RB grade from a scouting service, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes the Buckeye is a viable QB prospect.
During the "first half of last season, Miller was a better RB prospect than at QB," Brugler tweeted. "But he showed clear improvement down the stretch. Loads of potential." We are closer to Brugler's stance than the scouting service. Miller missed a good portion of the 2013 season, but we are excited to see if he develops during his final year under Urban Meyer.

One scouting service gave Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller a RB only grade, according to NFL.com's Andy Fenelon.

This fascinates us. While Miller is certainly still in the novice stages of his passing progression and has missed a large amount of time with injuries, it is early to be calling for a position switch. Miller had a difficult time choosing to stay or go following last season, but we are excited to see if there has been more development in 2014.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller has entered the "soft-passing" phase of his shoulder rehab.

Miller underwent offseason shoulder surgery. "He’s on schedule, I think, a little ahead of schedule," head coach Urban Meyer said. "His demeanor is fantastic. His attitude is great." Miller missed a large portion of last season, but should be 100 percent heading into his final year with the Buckeyes.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller leads the FBS in game-winning touchdown scoring drives, according to one study.

There are a few factors that play into this. First, Miller is one of the longest tenured starters in the FBS. Ohio State's quality of talent should also not be overlooked. Possessing the opportunity to play in close games is also important for a study like this, and is a reason why someone like Marcus Mariota is not even among the top 11. With that said, Miller's six exposures that fit the criteria are very impressive. Hopefully he takes an even bigger step towards becoming a poised passer.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller could be a Day 3 pick next year if he can't "noticeably improve" as a passer in 2014, according to NFL.com's Mike Huegenin.

"He is a great fit for coach Urban Meyer's version of the spread offense and is a true dual-threat quarterback," the analyst wrote. "Still, he has to improve as a passer. The better he becomes in that facet of the game, the earlier he will hear his name called in the 2015 NFL Draft." Miller threw for 2,094 yards and ran for 1,068 yards in 2013 and was given a mid- to late-round grade from the NFL's advisory board before deciding to return for his senior campaign.

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.

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.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive year.

Wisconsin LB Chris Borland was named Defensive Player of the Year, Penn State QB Christian Hackenburg was tabbed the Freshman of the Year and Michigan State's Mark Dantonio was selected as the Coach of the Year. Michigan State and Ohio State both had five players selected to the conference's first-team.

Ohio State junior QB Braxton Miller completed six of 15 attempts for 133 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the school's 42-41 win over Michigan.

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.
Sat, Nov 30, 2013 03:55:00 PM

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.
