I have been meaning to write about Mr. Miller, as well as Rodney Landers, for a while. For this one, I just focused on Miller.


CK's Draft Blog: Nebraska-Omaha's Zach Miller Could Make the Wildcat Bite (http://www.universaldraft.com/3_16_2009_CK_s_Blog.php)
March 16, 2009 - The Wildcat took the NFL by storm when the Miami Dolphins used the formation to embarrass the New England Patriots on their home field in Week 3 of the 2008 NFL season. While many have their own notions about what would work in the Wildcat formation, Chris Kouffman explores whether a little-known prospect could be one of the few in the 2009 NFL Draft that offers the Wildcat more than empty hype.

Here are two YouTube videos of him that I didn't link in the blog itself.

Couldn't agree more. That's why I think the rest of the NFL just doesn't "get it" when they try and put guys like Brad Smith back there.

It's already a stretch to have someone that isn't a pure running back by trade back there...the closest you will come outside a pure running back IMO would be a guy that has been a running quarterback since high school.

I think the ideal would be a player that is a premium 225+ pound running back prospect, but was also a premium quarterback prospect in high school. Those don't grow on trees.

Matt Asiata of the Utah Utes is interesting...future draft prospect. Does a lot of direct snap work with the Utes. But I don't think he has much throwing experience.

Now, if I recall...Anquan Boldin was a quarterback in high school, and I have always thought he plays the receiver position like a running back. But still, that's a stretch. I would want a guy back there that is at least 225 pounds.
