    Daniel Thomas is Dolphins' No. 2 back

    No mystery around the Dolphins’ running back job: Lamar Miller said he has been with the first team all offseason, with Daniel Thomas running No. 2.

    As the Miami Herald writes, there's "no mystery" about the Dolphins' tailback depth chart. Lamar Miller is locked in as the first-teamer, with Thomas No. 2 and rookie Mike Gillislee attempting to hold off longer-shot competitors like Jonas Gray for the third-string job. Gillislee could make a move on Thomas in training camp, but Thomas won't be making a move on Miller.

    It's so early at this point. I'll be shocked if Jonas Gray isn't pushing Thomas for a roster spot by mid-August.

    Miller still has to prove he can pass block when the pads come on. I don't see this as being written in stone. Miller has the most potential but if he hasn't shown he can pass block, which has been a weakness of his since his college days, then he's essentially a two down back at best.

    Which would mean he's the starter...which is what has been indicated thus far by the coaching staff, players and media.

    Way too early... no pads yet. Remember the QB discussion at this point last year?
