Playing Wide Receiver Could Make Miller a Better NFL Prospect
Even when Miller was healthy, many franchises felt that Miller might not transition to quarterback at the pro level. Under Urban Meyer, Ohio State runs a combination spread-option offense. It requires the quarterback to lineup in the shotgun 90-percent of the time, and it’s not an ideal offense for a quarterback trying to find his way into the professional ranks. Plus, Barrett and Jones exposed some of Miller’s weaknesses. Barrett has a more accurate arm and makes better decisions than Miller, while Jones has far superior arm strength. Most NFL teams might have asked Miller to switch positions anyway.
