Braxton Miller, Ohio State

MOBILE -- Braxton Miller has turned some heads this week in Mobile -- literally and figuratively. The Ohio State wide receiver has been lightening quick in his routes and, despite only playing one year at receiver for the Buckeyes, made some big strides this week.

He was voted by a panel of NFL scouts and Reese's Senior Bowl personnel as the top practice performer this week in Mobile.

"You just put in the time and the determination in how you want to perfect your craft," Miller said, "(and) it shows on the field. So, that's what I've been doing."
