Myles Gaskin made a nice sophomore leap last year, but most of us do not see him as a feature back. It is just a matter of time before he is no longer our feature back, but that does not mean that he will not get a good chuck of carries once we get that feature back.

Running back became a favored projection for the Miami Dolphins with this year's 18th overall draft pick. Instead, the organization chose Miami defensive end Jaelan Phillips. The Dolphins passed on the opportunity to select Najee Harris or Travis Etienne.
Miami likes what it has in Myles Gaskin, Malcom Brown and Salvon Ahmed. Gaskin led the team last season with 584 rushing yards.
"The big thing about Myles from at least last year and going from Year 1 to Year 2 for him was his growth in football and what he learned and how dependable he became for what we needed done," co-offensive coordinator Eric Studesville told reporters. "... Myles is going to put his best foot forward and give you everything he has and that's what gives him a chance."
Overall, Miami finished 22nd in rushing offense. What happens when Gaskin doesn't grow into a featured back? Questions about why the team passed on the position through the first six rounds will return.
