Chiefs chat with Ohio State's Braxton Miller at Senior Bowl

Here's an interesting name for the Kansas City Chiefs: WR Braxton Miller. The Ohio State product is participating in the 2016 Senior Bowl this week and the Kansas City Chiefs were among the teams he spoke with.

He was the Buckeyes quarterback in 2014 before moving to wide receiver last season. He had 341 yards receiving and 260 yards rushing last year. Everyone in Mobile seems to keep talking about how athletic he looks and using the word playmaker.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar also singled him out as a player that did well in Senior Bowl practice. Miller is listed at 6'2 and 215 pounds so he's much bigger than De'Anthony Thomas, who I think of when I see a player like Miller who can catch and run the ball. The Chiefs could stand to consider some receiver help. Chris Conley and Albert Wilson are good players to have but more competition isn't a bad thing, especially in an offense that distributes the ball well. Who is going to turn down someone described as a playmaker?

There's also the question of where Miller could be going in the draft. I've heard others suggest second or third round but it's still too early to really have a good feel for it.
