It may seem like every single member of the 2015 Ohio State Buckeyes was drafted in the first round of last night’s draft, but that’s far from the case. In fact, there at least another two or three expected to be taken early on Day 2, too.
One of those is quarterback-turned-wideout Braxton Miller, who Bleacher Report’s and 104.3 The Fan’s Cecil Lammey says is high on the the Broncos’ radar.

Miller spent his first three seasons at Ohio State at quarterback, where he earned two Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year awards and finished inside the top-10 for Heisman voting twice. After suffering a season-ending injury in what would have been his senior season, Miller returned the next year as a wideout, catching 25 balls for 340 yards and three touchdowns.
As a prospect, Miller is about as raw as they come — he’s only been playing the position for seven or eight months — but the talent is undeniable. He’s explosive, as evidenced by this run during his first game at wideout.
He’s the type of player you find a role for, whether that’s as a kick returner, a receiver or some other hybrid weapon entirely. Miller will have success in the NFL; it may just be a matter of time.
Not to mention, by all accounts he’s a fantastic person and leader. You can never have enough of those.
