He does well for an early 4th round pick. NFL.COM rated him as a late 1st round pick in 2011 when he came out as a true freshman. It said that he "relies on speed and leg drive to gain yards. He won't be able to juke linebackers at the next level or bail himself out of bad spots with his feet. He runs like a power back at times, which could be a liability in the NFL at his size. "

Quote:
One Dolphins staffer told the Miami Herald that Lamar Miller didn't run with enough physicality in 2013. We noticed Miller's tendency to run "soft" on 2012 game tape, but the problem was much clearer when he got to a bigger sample size in 2013. "We like Miller’s speed and explosiveness," the staffer said. "Miller has the higher ceiling, but you wish he ran with a more physical [style]," adding that Miller must improve as a blocker. Miller's role under new OC Bill Lazor is up in the air.

The "staffer" noticed he ran soft but gave him the starting nod....Maybe the "staffer is the problem.

I agree. This is the same staff that confessed to abandoning the running game. I am not sure Miller is a feature back. But I'd like to see him run behind a better line.
