Urban Meyer's Two Favorite Ohio State Players Will Be Teammates In The NFL

Urban Meyer says "I love that guy" about a lot of his Ohio State players. 

He's probably said it the most about these two former Buckeyes: John Simon and Braxton Miller. 

Simon was Meyer's defensive star during his first season at OSU in 2012. He loved him so much he (jokingly) said if he had another kid, he'd be named after him. 

Miller was Meyer's first quarterback, the star athlete who led the Buckeyes to 24 straight wins before getting hurt, sitting out a season and switching positions.

The two players Meyer has likely loved the most will now be teammates in the NFL, as Miller was drafted by the Houston Texans, the team Simon has been on since 2014. 

They're excited. 

">@BraxtonMiller5. Looking forward to being your teammate again!

Expect Meyer to be a pretty big Texans' fan this fall.
