One of the biggest camp competitions is for who will be the Dolphins number one running back to start the season. It was assumed newly signed free agent running back Knowshown Moreno would be the lead back in Miami but early on in OTA’s that doesn’t appear to be the case. As you can see below, Lamar Miller is creating a lot of buzz .@PFF rated Moreno worse than Miller in yds after contact per attempt in 2013. KM broke 21 tackles on 241 runs. LM broke 20 on 177 runs. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) June 10, 2014 Knowshon Moreno isn’t a tackle breaker. Nor is Lamar Miller, although he’s better at it than Moreno. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) June 10, 2014 If a coach is asking Lamar Miller to be a tackle breaker, he’s simply not coaching to his player’s strengths. — Evan Silva (@evansilva) June 10, 2014 Seemed Moreno was the logical ’1′ in Miami, but let’s face it – he’s ordinary. Miller seems to be pouncing on the gig. He’s only 23. — Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) June 10, 2014 Of course Lamar Miller is making more big plays than Knowshon. Moreno is a third down back, but he fits what the ZBS aims to accomplish — Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) June 9, 2014 Joe Philbin said Lamar Miller “has had a very good camp….third year player should make a big contribution to the football team” — Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) June 9, 2014 Hoping Fat Knowshon opens for the door for Lamar Miller, who was better than you think last season: http://t.co/7CBkcbQ22v — Patrick Daugherty (@RotoPat) June 3, 2014 Just realized Knowshon Moreno is working with the scrub unit. Ouch. — Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) June 9, 2014 Lamar Miller is the #Dolphins‘ first-team RB. Knowshon Moreno still has work to do. — James Walker (@JamesWalkerNFL) June 9, 2014 All this while Daniel Thomas continues to be….well Daniel Thomas Make sure you follow @cover32_MIA and @cover32_NFL on Twitter for all the latest breaking news, columns, blogs and features from the Dolphins and the entire NFL.
