Dolphins RB Lamar Miller said he’s not listening to the pundits who are considering him a possible breakout player this year. But he admitted that “everybody wants that star position.”
“I’m just getting more hungrier so that position be mine,” Miller said.
Coach Joe Phiblin said Miller is “very fundamentally sound.”
“I think his knowledge of the system has definitely increased,” Philbin said. “He appears to be a lot more comfortable with what he’s doing. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of indecision in his play.”
“Every running back’s got their own style of play,” Miller said. “I’d just say I’m fast, I’m quick and I’m patient.”
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. In OTAs he impressed both the coaching staff and his quarterback with his pass protection, which will be key in allowing him to be a three-down back.
