2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
The Miami native is built solidly at 5'11'' and 212 pounds. His speed is what is going to earn him his paycheck on Sundays; he generally runs a 4.40 in the 40-yard dash and has been clocked as fast as 4.32 from that distance. With that combination of speed and size, Miller is a load to tackle and he rarely goes down on initial impact. It often requires a lot more than just one defender to end the play when Miller has the ball. Areas in which he could improve are blocking and receiving skills out of the backfield. He caught 28 passes in his career at Miami, an average of 14 per season. Miller is in a fierce competition to be the second running back selected after Trent Richardson. No worse than a second-round selection is a virtual lock and a late first-round pick is possible.
