Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Plus arm strength with the natural athletic tools that translate very well to the next level. Spins a pretty football with top-shelf arm strength and an easy delivery, doing a nice job changing arm angles as needed.

Showed improved pocket mobility and field vision in 2013 to quickly scan the field, paying much more attention to technique and not allowing his mechanics to break down outside the pocket.

Miller is an above average athlete with game-changing speed, acceleration and explosive cuts to make defenders respect his mobility with agile feet to dance around the noise, following blocks well with vision and toughness to finish.

WEAKNESSES: Needs to continue his development as a passer for some NFL scouts to be sold. His touch and accuracy still run hot/cold with too many fastballs in his arsenal, needing to develop a change-up. Starting with his footwork and base, needs to continue and tweak his mechanics and improve his ball placement, something that continues to be a work-in-progress.

Ball security (10 fumbles in 2013) and durability are two other areas that are concerns, especially after off-season shoulder surgery and a knee injury that plagued him throughout last season.

Miller enters 2014 having never thrown for 300+ yards in a game (his single game-best is only 252 passing yards), but his weapons at wide receiver have been average-at-best and with his legs, he hasn't needed to chuck the ball 30+ times a game.

Over his first two seasons and the first half of last year, Miller looked like a better running back prospect than at quarterback. But down the stretch in 2013, he progressed in several areas as a passer and it would be a mistake to dismiss him as a viable NFL quarterback until we see what his senior year brings.

--Dane Brugler (8/5/14)

Player Overview

Can he play the quarterback position in the NFL? That will be the question throughout the 2014 season for Miller, who enters his fourth season as a starter with still a lot to prove, which is why he made a wise decision returning to Columbus.

It is concerns with touch, accuracy and the mental side of the position that lead some scouts to believe he needs to switch positions in the NFL.

08/22/2014 - Surgery scheduled for Buckeyes' Miller...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is scheduled to have surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch reported that noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation in Pensacola, Fla. The injury is a partial tear. Recovery time is estimated between nine and 12 months. That would mean Miller would miss all of spring practice next year. Miller has indicated that he will forgo the NFL Draft and return as a fifth-year senior nest season. Miller had surgery in February for a partial labrum tear suffered in an Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. He was being eased back into action after sitting out spring practice, but on Monday he reinjured the shoulder while making a routine 7-yard pass. - The Sports Xchange
