The Miami Dolphins running back situation is going to be an interesting one to watch this offseason, but many believe that it will be Lamar Miller who emerges from training camp as the team’s No. 1 guy. Miller has been receiving nothing but praise this offseason and now his quarterback is even jumping in to the mix.
Ryan Tannehill has been very impressed throughout offseason workouts and had praised the second-year running back to the Miami Hearald by saying, “he’s picking up pass protections a lot better. Now that he’s got that, he’s going to be a great player.”
When you are looking to be an every down back, you need to excel in all areas, so the improved pass rushing will go a long way for Miller as he looks to run away with the team’s starting gig.
While teammates and coaches are raving about their running back, future Pro Football Hall of Famer and NFL Network analyst LaDainian Tomlison chimed in, and his praise was even better. What did Tomlinson say about Miller? That he could be a bigger, more explosive version of former first-round rusher Reggie Bush.
The Dolphins can only hope.
