Analysis: Braxton Miller is the "real deal" when it comes to dual threat quarterbacks.  He is a big, physical player with great speed and has the ability to run around or run through defenders.  He also has excellent foot work and an uncanny ability to read holes in the defense.  Braxton has a very strong arm and knows when to take risks when throwing the ball and when to pick up and run.  He is a 5-star recruit and is rated as the #1 quarterback prospect in the country.  Braxton will be a 4-year starter on varsity and had breakout seasons his freshman and junior years.  He would have a another great year his sophomore year but suffered a broken leg in the sixth game of the season.  Look for great things to come for Braxton in his senior season.
