Football 101: Speed kills with Braxton Miller


On the second rep, which you can see at the 10 second mark of the above video, he was aligned as a perimeter receiver against Northern Iowa's Deiondre' Hall. He drove at Hall who maintained inside leverage. It was clear Hall wasn't going to let Miller back inside. Yet, Miller was able to make it happen.

Coach O'Brien talked about these very reps with us just after the draft on Saturday. We asked how valuable the Senior Bowl was to each senior's draft analysis. He distinctly mentioned these plays as he talked about how valuable Miller can be for this offense. He noted the ability to get separation anywhere on the field, especially in the red zone, and how valuable that will be in 2016 and beyond.

Ohio State WR Braxton Miller was the Texans' 3rd round (85th overall) pick.
