The Miami Dolphins traded up in the fourth round to draft Miami running back, Lamar Miller.
The only problem is, the Dolphins have Reggie Bush, who was great last season, and Daniel Thomas, who they drafted in the second round in 2011.
So what will Miller's role be for the Dolphins?
The Dolphins have made it clear they would like to start Miller out as a possible kick returner. It would be ideal for Miller to be involved as a receiver in the future, but he barely did much receiving in college and likely has to improve in that area first.
They are going to have to find a way to get Miller and his 4.4 speed the ball, whether it's from a handoff or not.
I think Joe Philbin looks at Miller as a shiny, new West Coast Offense weapon, but for now, he won't be heavily involved in the running game. Best case scenario for Miller is using him in certain situations where the Dolphins are looking for a big play. He needs time to develop before he is out there consistently. Maybe by the end ...
