Default Lamar Miller in the 4th Round! WOW!

Can anyone please tell me why he landed in the 4th? I have been away from the draft seen for quite some time now, and do not know why is it he slid so far.

Weren't you sure he'd be a 1st rounder? Haha

But yes, apparently his shoulder is worse than thought. Even so, doesn't sound like the Dolphins think he is ready Day 1 as it is and may use him more as a return man, occasional WR, and developmental back.

Wasn't it you that said that Miller would challenge Richardson for that top RB spot?

Regardless, hecwas taken off of boards because of concerns with his injuries.

He's soft as well. Doesn't mesh well with injury concerns.

With his size and speed, he can dominate and has dominated in specific games. Despite limited opportunities, his pass catching skills are off the chart to me. It seems the Dolphins agree and that is going to be their focus with him early on due to the lack of WR depth. Arguably the fastest RB in this class at 212 pounds, that is pretty darn good.

As for being "soft," it is a very fair argument and he does shy away from contact often or doesn't always seem to go for the big killing blow one on one against CBs or safeties. The opposite side of that argument is that he didn't play that way as a freshman and played through injury the whole season. If he continues being soft, it will likely mean a less than stellar career IMO.

Everybody calling him 'soft' does realize he was playing through an injury that would've kept most people out last season, correct? Sometimes he shied away from being hit on that shoulder, yes. But the kid gutted it out because he was far and away the best on their offense and he knew they needed him.

Lamar Miller will be a steal someday, just like DeMarco Murray was last year in a similar slot.

Will he be converted to WR or be used for 3rd down purposes?

If Miller stays healthy, I see him being one of the mid round steals from this draft. He probably won't ever be a every down RB, but get the right combination with Miller and your running attack could be deadly.

Should be a great replacement for Reggie Bush when his contract is over. Dolphins running outside zone is perfect for Miller.

1. Injury concerns
2. Can't run in btw tackles
3. Can't pass protect and was taken out on 3rd down
4. Not an every down back and still had injury concerns


I really never understood the Lamar Miller hype. He's good, but he wasn't anything more than a 3rd rounder at earliest.

I was pretty happy with the pick as a Miami fan. I think having bush gives them plenty of time to bring him along. Glad he came out as a Jr and fell.

I agree with everything except for #2. He had absolutely no problems running in between the tackles in college. He fell because of injury concerns and he's only a 2 down back.
