Braxton Miller ran an official 4.5 in the 40-yard dash at February's NFL Combine. While it's certainly not bad, Miller himself had higher hopes. (His stated goal was 4.28.)
Miller got another crack at the 40-yard dash at Ohio State's pro day. With the combination of "friendly turf" and hand-timing, Miller was expected to shave a few hundredths of a second off his 40-yard dash time.
He didn't disappoint.
Got word from the Ohio State pro day. @BraxtonMiller5 timed at 4.33 and 4.36— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 11, 2016
Looks to be the consensus among scouts, players, and fans alike:

Miller wasn't the only Buckeye to impress in the 40-yard dash. Wide receiver Mike Thomas made some money too:
One scout text me he had @Cantguardmike at 4.45 in the 40— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 11, 2016
As usual, it's a good day to be a Buckeye.
