Miami Football 2015 Player Profile: Braxton Berrios

In an effort to keep even the most hardcore Miami fan up to date on their favorite players, SOTU will be running a Player Profile series. In these posts, our writers will profile players from each position that they think should get more face time. They will recap their previous year, or in some cases, preview what may be to come. That way, when the season get's here, you hopefully will have a new found love for the team on the field.

Braxton Berrios

Sophomore - WR - 5'9 183 - Raleigh NC (Leesville Road H.S.)

Berrios caught 23 passes for 232 yards and 3 TDs as a trush frosh last year.

Came to UM as an Under Armour All-American.

Continued to develop this Spring, including scoring a TD in the Spring Game, and developing as a leader in the WR group:

Summary: Berrios had an up and down freshman campaign, making some big plays, but also having a few costly drops. He's talented, no doubt.  But with so much competition for targets in the passing game, he is going to have to catch everything that comes his way to keep getting looks. Berrios is a natural slot type. He runs good patterns underneath, can make a double move,  and is shifty after the catch, all of which is necessary to make up for his lack of size. Also, Brad Kaaya seems to trust him. A season of 30-35 catches with 4 or 5 TDs would seem realistic and would be a nice progression in his second year in the program.  If he can get deep a few times and help make up for the loss of Phillip Dorsett, that would be extremely beneficial to the 'Canes offense in 2015 as well. Don't be surprised if BB gets a few looks in the return game as well.

Stay tuned for more player profiles from SOTU as we count down to kick off.
