Draft Rewind 2012 – Lamar Miller – Miami Dolphins

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about LAMAR MILLER: Miami, 5106 212 4.40. Underclass entry. A red-shirt sophomore, one-year starter who played in a pro style offense where he was the featured ball carrier. Good body lean, vision, and running instincts. Possesses a runner’s patience to let the play develop. Drives legs on contact and works to finish runs. Has a burst and can hop cut in the hole and get into the second level quickly. He follows and utilizes his blockers. He can see the whole picture. Shows some pick and slide on screen passes. Can run the inside and outside zone stretch play. Had two more years eligibility and could have used another year of experience. Has the talent and speed to play on Sunday, but needs work on pass protection and route running. He was taken out on third down sub packages because of his fringe blocking skills. Made a good decision on a halfback pass where the receiver was covered and he pulled the ball down and ran for eight yards. As with many past Hurricane backs, he could be featured on the next level as a downhill I-formation back. To do that he must get stronger and develop his body to take hits. Durability is a question. Gets careless at times with the ball and fumbles. Rushed for over 100 yards in seven games. Five were before mid-season. Has a chance to start if he develops his shortcomings. 2011 stats: 1272 yds, 5.6 ypc, 9 TDs, 17 receptions, 85 yds, 1 TD. OSR:4/29. Second/third round. (A-31 3/8, H-9 1/4, BP-DNP, SS-4.08).
