You know the old saying the rich get richer? Well, Ohio state sure does after their 2x Big Ten Player of The Year quarterback Braxton Miller has announce that he will switch positions to wide receiver.
Some may believe that Miller is making a mistake by changing positions. Even Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has stated that the decision for Miller’s position change hasn’t been finalized, but lets be real with ourselves this is the best for both Braxton and the Buckeyes. Miller was never going to project as a NFL quarterback, so this gives scouts great tape to look at when evaluating him at the next level. And for the Bucks this allows the most explosive player in the conference, maybe in the entire country to be on the field at all times and not have to split reps.
Braxton Miller’s play-making ability is undeniable, but the Buckeyes have two other players that are more equip to play the QB position in JT Barrett and Cardale Jones. By putting Miller are WR you add his talents to the tremendous skill players they already have such as Ezekiel Elliot and Jaelin Marshall. On paper the Buckeyes offense looks unstoppable.
We will be able to see how well Braxton Miller thrives at his new position when the season starts. If this move pans out, we could see Miller and the Buckeyes hoisting another College Football Playoff Championship trophy.
