Not exactly an original pick, is it? Coming off leading his team to a 12-0 season, nobody in the Big Ten has been the flavor of the offseason like Miller.
There's good reason. The guy gives defensive coordinators headaches, setting a school record as a sophomore by accumulating 3,310 total yards in 12 games.
Some will say he's easily the best quarterback in the league. We're not of that mind, and coaches in the league apparently aren't either.
With a 58.3 percent completion percentage, he didn't throw the ball with as much accuracy as Martinez last year, and will need to bring those numbers up. He did turn it over less, throwing six picks, compared with Martinez's 12, though Miller also threw 114 fewer times.
Miller's elusiveness makes him something special. He racked up 1,271 yards on the ground without the benefit of a conference title game or bowl game.
And given Ohio State's relatively easy schedule, it's very likely you'll hear Miller's name in Heisman Trophy discussions from now until November as long as the Buckeyes keep winning. But the battle to be the best quarterback in the conference might carry enough interest on its own.
Both Miller and Martinez are veterans now who should be near the top of their craft as college quarterbacks.
And while it's true Miller left the 2011 game against Nebraska early with an injury, the record books have the quarterbacks 1-1 against each other as starters. How would everyone feel about a Round 3 in Indy to break the tie?
