Dolphins HC Joe Philbin on RB Lamar Miller: “He is very smart. I think he has really progressed from a mental standpoint as a professional in his second season. He has very good hands. We like a lot of the things he is doing in pass protection. Again, we have to temper our enthusiasm based on how he does in pads, but I think is understanding of how he fits in the protection scheme is very good. We use that term, ‘closing the distance.’ He has done an excellent job in that regard in the spring, so we’ll have to see how that carries over to the fall.”
Miller is expected to win the starting job and should be a fantasy RB2 in that role. He didn't play much as a rookie but showed promise, which is why the Dolphins let Bush walk. He has great speed but is unproven.
