Scotty Miller is running away with the WR3 race
Tyler Johnson was a favorite to start with the role going into the season, but after a disappointing start to camp, the job may be Scotty Miller’s to lose.
Miller has all of the skills to be an extremely talented wide receiver in the NFL despite his smaller size. Brady has a history of making players with less talent extremely successful, and Miller is an upgrade athletically over many of Brady’s former teammates.
Upon his arrival in camp, Brady has quickly gravitated towards Miller. Even with a wealth of receiving options on the roster, Miller has found a way to develop a bond that should lend itself to increased reps and targets during the regular season.
Justin Watson could be close on Miller’s heels, but for the time being, the race for the third spot is between two players, and the rest of the field is competing for the final two roster spots.
Miller may not have the size to stand out physically, but Tampa Bay has to make sure that they surround Brady with the best chemistry options possible.
