Lamar Miller' Player ProfileMiller had a very strong performance at the 2012 NFL Combine. The Miami Hurricane product ran a 4.40 in the 40 in which he was a top performer. Miller also had a 33" vertical jump. Miami has their pro day on March 8th, if Miller improves his 40 that would ensure him a first round spot. He showed during the on-field drills that he belongs in the first round. He still has to improve on agility to show he can get away from a tackler. Still projecting Miller to go in the first round.
Lamar Miller is a small but big back. The 5'11" 212lbs back out of Miami had a productive seasons for the Canes with 227 carries for 1272 yards and 9 touchdowns. He is an explosive and patient back who waits for the hole to open and will burst through. Miller is a straight downhill runner, he has the break away speed after he finds the crease and gets to the next level. He won't break a lot of tackles but he can move the pile and in the open space he can make you miss. Perhaps his best attribute is his vision, if there isn't a hole he has the ability to cut back and get to the outside. He does have some downside as you'll have with most back, he tends to put the ball on the ground a lot. If he can take care of that problem and maybe put on a few pounds he can be a good back and have a solid career as an every-down back. Look for Miller's name to be called late in the first round. Another Miami product going to the pro's.
