When Knowshon Moreno signed with Miami in the offseason, many penciled the former Bronco in as the Dolphins’ starting running back.
It was way premature. Instead, Lamar Miller has been clearly ahead of Moreno on the depth chart every step of the way since and might even be pulling away.
Moreno hasn’t practiced yet in camp, still healing from arthroscopic knee surgery.
Miller, meanwhile, is healthy — and stronger than ever. Miller, who ranked 24th among running backs in yards after contact last year (2.06 per carry), put on between six and eight pounds of muscle this offseason.
Miller looks to be taking advantage of his opportunity to turn into the back many thought he'd be last season. Miller is currently ranked 31st on our RB list, but he could climb if the current trend continues. He's shaping up to be a great value with an ADP of the 8th round.
