  • Lamar Miller, RB, Miami (FL)

    I know everyone is high on Trent Richardson coming out next year, but I think Lamar Miller is another guy who will go in the first round that isn't getting a lot of pub yet. He is averaging 6.6 YPC right now and getting better each game. He was a track star coming out of HS and was probably the fastest guy to come out of the state of Florida his year. Legit size at 5'11" 205 and should test ridiculously well at the combine. Been extremely impressed by his vision and cut back ability so far and the guy just runs really hard. If I had to make a comparison I'd go with Ronnie Brown coming out of Auburn.

    Thoughts on him as a prospect? Will he be the second RB taken in the draft next year after Richardson?

      I only caught him in the highlights, but he has a prototypical compact body type and seemed to never stop moving his feet and going forward. I liked what I saw.

        It was said he ran a 4.27 40 at practice, but another site projects him to run.....40 Time:4.42, Low:4.30, High:4.56

          Thats really impressive if a not tiny guy like him is able to run a 4.2. He's interesting to watch, and definately a fast fast player. Should be interesting to see where he goes when he comes out (Only a RS frosh)

            watching that Miami game last night, I was surprised by how fast he ran.

              Lamar's skill-set reminds me a lot of a young LT. Not saying he'll get to that level but they have a ton of similarities as runningbacks.

                I think Mike James will be a better NFL back. He has the perfect frame and he runs hard and explodes through the hole. He played FB for us as a tFr and is also a good receiver and pass blocker. Miller is a special back but James seems like a prototypical NFL starter because he's a complete back. He can push the pile, find a small crease and make something out of nothing. Miller is more of an elusive, big play back that will rack up lots of yards if you make him big holes and cutback lanes.

                  Miller is solid, however remember a few years back everyone said this exact same stuff about Graig Cooper. About how fast he was and how great he would become, and injuries have really hurt him and he has not turned out to be what a lot of people thought.

                  Until Miller proves he can be the man on a consistent basis and be productive, it is still kind of up in the air. Not sure yet if he has elite running back ability. If one considers him a sophomore instead of a RS Freshman, not sure he is better than the likes of Trent Richardson, Knile Davis, LaMichael James, Ryan Williams, Dion Lewis etc. Heck one could easily argue Edwin Baker is just as talented as Miller in terms of production and consistency.

                  We will see how he progresses, still the hype around Miami running backs at times rarely lives up to what they are supposed to be.

                    eh? What other RB at Miami was hyped that hasn't panned out? And I don't think Cooper was ever hyped that much, if he wasn't for his injury in the bowl game he would have been a 2nd round - 4th round pick, which is where I think most people "hyped" him to be.

                        They were hyped coming in to Miami but never did anything once they got there. I think Miller has already shown that he is better than both of them but I guess only time will tell.

                          I wish we would have kept Bobby Washington and gave him a chance, because I would have loved to see what he was capable of doing for us.

                            Yeah, I heard he was a major headcase though.
