After Miami put up little to no fight in retaining RB Reggie Bush via free agency, many are pinning Miami’s running back stable as one of the worst in the league. One of the worst or the most inexperienced is the argument many make towards those accusations. We will go with option B.

 

Nonetheless, a running back has emerged from the pack a bit. Second-year back, Lamar Miller, has shown flashes of brilliance during OTAs, according to multiple sources.

 

In his first season with the team, Miller carried the ball 51 times for 250 yards (4.9 ypc) and 1 touchdown. The 5’10”, 215 pounder showed the ability to not only run between the tackles, but also that third gear that most players simply just do not possess.

 

The former Miami Hurricane did, however, have issues with his pass protection technique. This is a key reason why the team used RB Daniel Thomas more than Miller on passing downs.

 

If Miller can become more consistent as a blocker, the sky is the limit.
