The Miami Dolphins offense is expected to be improved after their free agent spending spree this offseason, but it is one player who is entering his second year with the team that could be stealing the show. Running back Lamar Miller has received nothing but praise this offseason from his coaches and teammates, and he is expected to become the team’s starting rusher thanks to his offseason improvement.
Among the areas that Miller has improved most is his pass blocking, which allows him to be an every down back in the league.
Miller is also currently working out in North Miami Beach at Bommarito Performance Systems with a number of NFL players and alumni from The U. One of the players that Miller has been learning from is San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore, who has had a positive impression on the young back.
“The way Lamar is learning from Frank, it’s a beautiful thing,” Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker and Miller’s college teammate Sean Spence told The Miami Herald.
The positive opinion didn’t stop there.
Pete Bommarito himself spoke out on Miller’s skills and had some very high for the running back’s speed.
“He’s the fastest running back I’ve ever seen,” Bommarito said.
Considering the amount of players that Bommarito has seen come through, that is unbelievable to hear.
It’s going to be exciting to see how Miller’s speed out of the backfield compliments the speed that the Dolphins added on the edges. If the team can put it all together and Ryan Tannehill steps up in his second year in the league, the Dolphins could be a surprise team in the AFC East, with the Patriots on the decline.
