The Houston Texans got one step closer to signing their entire 2016 rookie class. The Houston Chronicle's John McClain is reporting that the Texans have signed Ohio State wide receiver Braxton Miller to a four-year rookie contract worth a little more than $3.1 million with a signing bonus of slightly more than $700,000.

Miller was by far the Texans' boldest pick of the draft as the team selected the former quarterback turned wide receiver in the third round with the 85th overall pick.

Miller opened his Ohio State career by winning back-to-back Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year awards (2012, 2013) at quarterback. He missed all of 2014 with a shoulder injury and moved to wide receiver for the 2015 season. In his senior season, he caught 26 passes for 341 yards and six touchdowns.

With Miller agreeing to terms, only Will Fuller remains unsigned among the Texans' 2016 draftees. Fuller was selected with the 21st overall pick in the 2016 Draft out of Notre Dame.
