PLAYERS: Lamar Miller
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
  After Reggie Bush left the Dolphins in free agency the question is who will step up and take his place? It will most likely either be Lamar Miller or Daniel Thomas, and out of those two based on skills, it’ll be Lamar Miller. Don’t get me wrong Daniel Thomas is promising but not as good as Miller. Thomas’s problem is he is inconsistent, one game he will look great, and the next one look like he doesn’t even know where he is. Last season he had 91 attempts, and 325 rushing yards, and 4 rushing touchdowns. Thomas is great at those 3rd and 1 situations, thats what he will probably be used for. Same as last year usually, have him barrel through the pack and get a first down. The starting running back will be Lamar Miller, in his rookie season last year he had 51 attempts, and 251 rushing yards. Miller averaged about 5 yards per carry, which is pretty impressive. I’m excited to see what Miller will do this year in a starting role. He will have some troubles but he will get settled in this year and become a great running back over the next two years. We know the two main starters but lets talk about the incoming rookie from the Florida Gators. Mike Gillislee was drafted by the Dolphins in the 5th round with the 164th overall pick. In his senior season with the Gators, Gillislee had 244 attempts, 1,152 rushing yards, and 10 rushing touchdowns. Those are pretty impressive numbers, I’m interested to see how he will do as years go by in the NFL. This position is well stocked and there is no worries on the running back position now for a couple years. The Miami Dolphins always find good running backs through the years and its always been a safe spot for them.
