The once top ranked running back could allow the Miami Dolphins to move back in the second and still land an intriguing back
Texas A&M running back Isaiah Spiller is another player that has been consistent over the past few years having posted three straight 1,100+ scrimmage yard seasons. He’s been efficient as both a runner and a pass-catcher but has seen fewer catches over his last two seasons.
In his three years at Texas A&M, Spiller has seen at least 174 carries and 20 catches. He totaled 188 in 10 games during the 2020 COVID season.
At 6-foot-1, 215 pounds, Spiller is about the same size as Hall and he also averaged 5.5 yards per carry in his three-year career with the Aggies. However, Spiller had 541 carries in his career, which is 177 less than Hall.
The first of a three part series where we look at running backs that the Miami Dolphins could target in free agency, the NFL draft, or through trades.
Spiller had started the season as the likely top running back off the board, but spectacular seasons by both Walker and Hall lowered his ranking. However, he is a dynamic back which would be an upgrade for the Dolphins compared to any of the other running backs on the roster.
Of all three backs, Spiller had averaged 8.0 yards per catch for his career including a whopping 9.6 yards per catch average in 2020. The Dolphins will likely bring back Myles Gaskin, who is serviceable as a pass-catcher, making an interesting dynamic if they decide to go with Spiller.
