Braxton Miller leads latest group of Senior Bowl commitments

Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller has accepted an invitation to the 2016 Reese's Senior Bowl, giving the annual all-star game one of the most intriguing prospects in next year's draft.

Although Miller had just 329 yards receiving on 24 receptions for the Buckeyes this season, he is a two-time Big Ten Player of the Year as a quarterback. He changed positions as a senior to further his appeal with NFL scouts, but as Ohio State's passing attack struggled at times, so did Miller's production.

At 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, Miller has explosive athleticism and plenty of size. He dominated the Big Ten as a spread-option quarterback from 2012-2013, but a shoulder injury compelled him to give up the quarterback position and concentrate on a career at receiver. Coaches, scouts and personnel executives from every NFL club attend the annual all-star game to evaluate the top senior NFL draft prospects in college football with a particular interest in the practice week. Players go through personal interviews with individual teams, as well.

LSU offensive lineman Vadal Alexander, Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo, Florida linebacker Antonio Morrison and Notre Dame guard Nick Martin, the brother of Dallas Cowboys 2014 first-round draft pick Zack Martin, are among the latest to accept invitations to play in the game, too. The roster grows to 71 players after Tuesday's additions.

The game will be played on Jan. 30 in Mobile, Ala., and televised by NFL Network.
