    Who would be a good late round draft pick for runningback?

    I know miami has plenty of needs and I've seen the posts about who they should get with the first rd and second rd picks. Miami has a bunch of picks this year and I don't want miami to draft a running back high but miami does have quite a bit of later round picks and I think they could and should use a pick say 4th or 7th or maybe undrafted. All I know is runningback for whatever reason positions seems to be a position especially past years where good runningbacks can and have been found more so or often than the other positions. Just look at Alfred Morris last year picked in the 4th round and the other runningbacks undrafted or late round that can be good or very good. I know miami has Lamar Miller and I like him, I think he can make big plays for miami, but I thought his run blocking is not so good and I see him as more of a speed, not really getting big yards up the midde, grind it out, good running back. And I just don't think too much of Daniel Thomas, he's alright as far as I've seen. I think miami should draft another runningback, because miami is going to want to try to make sure runningback is good for them, especially should lamar miller get injured. They helped out Tannehill with Mike Wallace pick up and I believe are going to draft some o line men to help, but a good running back or good runningbacks are essential not just for an offense and qb, but especially a young qb like Tannehill. So I was wondering what running backs you think would be or could be a good pick between 4th rd to 7th round? Or any ones that could fall to those rds?

    I'm biased but a healthy Chris Thompson from FSU would be a nice COP back.

    Lattimore from SC. Sure he may not contribute this year, but this kid is golden on and off the field.

    Draft: 1. LB Ryan Shazier 2. OL Joel Bitonio 3. WR Donte Moncrief 4. OL Brandon Thomas 5. OT Laurent Duvernay Tardif 6. RB Bo Oliver 7. TBD

    I saw that kid live vs NCST and he looked like NFL talent to me. They couldn't stop him. Ran some wildcat if I remember correctly.

    I think we take a runningback before our third round picks are gone. We have nothing proven at runningback and Thomas looks like a bust. Miller has potential but way too little seen to know

    I would LOVE to pick up Marcus Lattimore in the mid-rounds. If it wasn't for the injury, he would have been a top ten pick. He is worth the gamble.

    I'm hoping the phins take Spencer Ware too. he can be had in 5th easily, provides a tough, downhill runner who has good experience blocking and catching. Not to mention his body adjustment in traffic makes him well suited to the zone blocking scheme. I'd see him eventually replacing Thomas as the #2 back.

    Jonathan Franklin is the best RB in the draft. Runs like Frank Gore. I'd take him in the 3rd if he's still there.
