Lamar Miller, a fourth-round pick in 2012, and is the favorite to be the lead back in the Miami backfield.
However, he’s coming off a rookie year that saw him used sparingly due to Reggie Bush being the starter, but there was also a question of whether he could adapt to the pass protection schemes needed on passing downs.
Reports out of Miami are that question mark is slowly being answered.
“He’s picking up pass protections a lot better,” Tannehill said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “Now that he’s got that, he’s going to be a great player.”
Ryan Tannehill said “what impresses me most” about Lamar Miller – the Dolphins’ first-team tailback all offseason – is “he’s picking up pass protections a lot better. Now that he’s got that, he’s going to be a great player.” Former NFL MVP LaDainian Tomlinson, now with NFL Network, said Miller is faster and more explosive than Reggie Bush.
