    Lamar Miller will be the 2nd or 3rd best RB in this draft class when it's all said and done

    Not necessarily defending, Ted. Just saying that I think it was meant to be Reggie's replacement for next year (hence the "for the future" part). I would have preferred a WR myself.

    Miller is more of a slower version of what Jerris McPhail was coming out of ECU. A poor man's Trung Canidate.


    I think what helps Miller is that he won't ever be relied on to be a featured back. If he's part of RB by Committee approach he can have a role there, and double as a kick returner.

    This is not a 1st round back that Miami got in the 4th round. I've never subscribed to that. He's a mid-round back that Miami got in the mid-rounds.

    Its about Miller talent, he has elite talent. And we got him at a steal for a 4th round pick. Lamar Miller gives us pro bowl talent, even thou we have good players at his postion already. Miller and Thomas has the potential to give us a great one two punch for years to come.

    Should of just saved the 6th round pick and use it on Chris Polk if we want a RB with knee issues.

    No, it's not about his talent. You're trying to pass off speed for talent.


    Explain what it is that he does well besides run fast in a straight line. This draft and every other is full of players that have that ability.


    He avoids contact, doesn't run hard between the tackles, doesn't get the yardage after contact that elite RB's get, doesn't have great vision, has ball security issues, durability issues, medical red flags, ineffective in pass protection. Doesn't press the hole initially to suck LB's inside before bouncing it outside. Hasn't produced in the passing game as a receiver out of the backfield.

    What he does well is accelerate to stop speed quickly, and has very good straightline speed.


    The bottom line is that he's a one-dimensional back who lacks toughness and vision as a runner, and has medical red flags.

    He was the 2nd rated RB on many, many boards and even projected to go on the 1st rd...I like it, especially after the J.Martin signing
    We wont have many star WRs, but we WILL have multiple pass-catching weapons on this new offense!
