NFL.com analyst Mike Mayock said earlier this week that Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is not a first-round wide receiver.
Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis this afternoon, Miller said he disagrees.
Asked if he thinks he’ll go in the first round, the Wayne High School graduate said, “Do I think? Oh yeah, I know for sure. For sure. The way I work …”
And with that Miller left the podium to prepare for the rest of his combine experience, which include interviews with various teams later today, followed by psychological testing and more interviews tomorrow and his on-field workouts Saturday, where scouts will be interested to see how the former quarterback measures up after missing a year with a shoulder injury before switching positions.
“I’m excited to be playing football again, just out here doing what I love to do,” Miller said. “I’m just putting everything in God’s hands and perfecting my craft to try to be one of the best period. That’s what I’ve been doing since I made the switch to wide receiver.”
