The assumption was made by some that Braxton Miller would struggle during his conversion from the quarterback position. A former Big Ten Conference Player of the Year and Heisman Trophy candidate at Ohio State, Miller proved to be a natural at wide receiver. He impressed the Texans enough during the Senior Bowl all-star game and a private workout that they drafted him in the third round. Although Miller caught just 26 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 281 yards and a touchdown on 42 carries in his lone season at receiver and earned All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention honors, he flashed the kind of explosiveness to convince the Texans to draft him even after already picking Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller in the first round.
