Braxton Miller drawing comparisons to Donovan McNabb by NFL scouts

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller has been dealing with injuries to start the college football season, but he is still viewed highly in some NFL circles. According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the man who rocks No. 5 for Ohio State is drawing some comparisons to a popular No. 5 that recently retired from the NFL — Donovan McNabb.

From Breer’s report:

One executive compared Miller to Donovan McNabb and said: “The thing that was so impressive, he was controlling the whole thing (during practice). Urban (Meyer) stepped up to the line, and Braxton asked him to step back and really directed everyone on where to go. … He can be the whole package. He’s got it.” Now Miller must prove it on the field; he can show how far he’s come when he returns from a sprained MCL against the Badgers

Of course, you still have some scouts that are concerned about how his skill set can translate to the NFL, but you will have those questions that can be answered throughout the draft process.

Miller returns from his injury on Saturday night with a big Big Ten match up against Wisconsin, so he can bounce back in a big way and give scouts more to consider.
