After making it his goal to run a sub-4.3 40 Yard Dash at the NFL Combine, Ohio State quarterback turned wide receiver Braxton Miller posted a somewhat disappointing 4.50 when he ran in Indianapolis. Lest you think that meant he had somehow lost some of the top end speed that will make him a threat in the NFL, Miller turned on the burners at Ohio State's Pro Day this morning in Columbus.

Reports are conflicting about Miller's time, but that's usually how it goes when you're not being timed by lasers, like is done at the Combine. But from the people we trust, it looks like Miller ran a 4.33 and a 4.35 or 4.36 in his two 40-Yard Dashes.
Got word from the Ohio State pro day. @BraxtonMiller5 timed at 4.33 and 4.36

That's a big improvement over his Combine time, and it should quell any fears that scouts or front office officials might have that Miller might not be as fast as they had thought. The dude can still burn.
