hmmmm.......well, this will be a better question in two years after Braxton is done and we get a chance to see how he develops as a passer etc.
Choosing now, i would take Troy Smith......Then TP......Then Braxton. TP was what....30-3 as a starter (or close to that)?? Hard to argue with that. I would have liked to see TP in Urban's offense. I think this coaching staff would not have put up with TP's shit or protected him but i also think they would have developed TP and utilzied his strengths more than JT did.
At the end of the day I believe Braxton will have the better career out of the group. Troy had a tremendous receiving corp around him which helps and also Beanie and Pittman in the backfield. I loved watching his Sr year.....5 wide and just pickign teams apart like it was nothing.
And for the record....I am throwing out Braxton's frosh year given the circumstances.....
Regardless.....to have 3 consecutive QB's putting up numbers and records like we have seen and will see is phenominal!!!!!

The kid is the best athlete out of the bunch. His passing game was coming around which made him unstoppable. We would've won the national title on his back.

The question is way too early. Millers career should not be compared to the others yet. At the end of his junior year is the earliest we should think about a comparison. He is going to mature so much between his sophmore and junior years. He is going to be under the same staff for two years in a row. l think the best is yet to come.
If the game was down to one play and we were sitting at a 4th and 15 I'd want Pryor with ball. Knuckle head or not, he showed up big when it mattered.
Braxton's has the highest upside, should be a fun two years.
Pryor was MVP of two BCS games where he was largely the only legitimate offensive weapon. Boom Herron was the lead RB, and best he can do is special teams gunner in the NFL. Sanzenbacher just got cut by the Bears this week. Posey was a late-round pick and a drop machine who has shown little to nothing in the league as a rookie.
Smith by far had best material to work with, played with 2 1st-round receivers, a RB Pittman, who left early for the NFL, and another RB in Wells, also a 1st-round pick.
For Miller, does Philly Brown have an NFL future? How high will Hyde go? Both are fair questions.
Good note on 4th and 15. I would also take Pryor in that instance over the other two. In fact, we had just such a scenario at Iowa, and Pryor converted on his own, within the same series where he threw a perfect bomb for a TD to Posey, who proved his unworthiness with yet another drop.
Pryor also was the running threat who put Miami away in the 'Shoe. He could beat teams with his arm or legs (like Oregon and Arkansas in his back-to-back BCS MVP performances), and did it at a high level against elite competition routinely. The only time we got away from that formula in the last 20 games of his career, we lost (at Wisconsin). OSU won 19 of his last 20 starts, and I have no doubt would've run the table had Pyror been here and eligible as a senior. He was a seminal talent with little to no position coaching. He was incredible.
Miller may be too before he's through. He's at least getting the coaching.
