Rookie third rounder, Braxton Miller
Nothing signaled that the team was leery of Strong’s future as much as the selection of wide receiver Braxton Miller in Round 3.
Weight: 201 pounds
Career receptions: 25 (Ohio State)
Career yards: 340 (Ohio State)
Career TDs: 3 (Ohio State)
Miller had just 25 receptions as a Buckeye because he spent just one season as a receiver after playing quarterback his first three seasons. In 2014 though he suffered an injury and was given a medical redshirt for one season.
Miller returned after that layoff and was determined to show NFL scouts he could play at the next level, even if he had to switch to wide out. He managed to catch 25 passes and was credited with just one drop all season.
Miller can also help in the running game (much like Shorts did in 2015) as he rushed for 3,315 yards and 33 touchdowns during his career as well.
Look for him to spend most of 2016 developing his skills as a receiver, while also serving on special teams.
Season prediction: 15 receptions, 150 yards, 1 TD
Next: Another sophomore
