Braxton Miller will take another season to show NFL evaluators what he can do.

The Ohio State junior quarterback is returning for his senior year, the school’s athletic department said on Twitter on Thursday night.

Miller, according to the school, said that he wanted to graduate and to “improve as a quarterback in all aspects of my game.”

Miller, who’s listed at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds by Ohio State, has won the Big Ten’s offensive player of the year honors in each of last two seasons. In 2013, he completed 162-of-255 passes for 2,094 yards with 24 TDs and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 1,058 yards and 12 TDs on 171 carries.

    The draft advisory board didn’t give him a high enough grade to come out as a junior. Matter of fact they suggested he enrol in grad school.

    How sad he deprive us of the continuation of the great line if QBs to come out of Ohio State, like Pryor, Kent Graham, Art Schlister, and Bobby Hoying?

    Im a die hard Ohio State fan, but I do agree, I don’t know if he’s ready just yet. But once he is, he’ll be very dangerous, especially with how fast he is!

    he is not pro qb material.

    Shocker. Miller is far less talented than Pryor. Not that Pryor has been a flop at this point, but I’m not sure Miller will even get drafted.

    Considering the fact he’s not an NFL prospect, I say good move.

    Bad news for Buckeye fans. He’s not even the best QB on their team.

    Guiton is so much better than Braxton miller, he should transfer.

    Good he could use a senior year in all honesty

  13. bowdowntopeyton says: Jan 9, 2014 11:21 PM

    Of course he is.

    He saw the year T.P. had in Oakland and knew he didn’t want to go play big boy football.

    He better had gone back to school. As a matter of fact, he better make sure he gets his degree as well because he is the Tim Tebow of Urban Meyer’s offense at Ohio State. I mean he is almost actually Tim Tebow. He cannot consistently hit wide receivers and it is blatantly obvious that he will not transition to be a quarterback at the next level, and because he isn’t that fast, and isn’t that shifty I don’t know what position he translates to at the next level but it is definitely not quarterback.

    As a Buckeye fan, I have watched a lot of his games and his weakness is obvious: Stop the run, force him to pass and odds are the Buckeyes will lose. Luckily for the Buckeyes they had Carlos Hyde this year, but next year will be the challenge for the Buckeyes when a new running back has to be broken in and if he isn’t equal to Hyde’s ability then the offense will go nowhere fast. Miller just hasn’t shown that he can hit receivers consistently enough to think that he could be drafted in the NFL as a quarterback at this point. Maybe he grows next year, but he isn’t there yet, and this is coming from a Buckeye fan.

    I think he’s going to back to school because he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. Urban Meyer doesn’t get many players into the NFL out of that ridiculous offense.

    Hard to believe he passed up a chance to be an undrafted free agent in the NFL.

    Kenny Guiton would have won more games.

    He’s gonna tear up the CFL…
