What To Look For:
With elusiveness, we're looking for the ability to make a man miss. We want to see quickness, agility and balance.
We want to know whether he makes a man miss. Does he do it by breaking tackles or through plus speed and quickness? How does he fare in tight spaces?
How athletic does he look compared to every other player on the field?
The most important trait that we're looking for here is with regards to balance. We don't want a running back that runs upright. We want one that has natural body control and runs with his pad level low.
What Lamar Miller Possesses:
There is no doubt that Miller has the ability to make men miss. He can do it in a few different ways. He's got the quickness and speed to simply outrun defensive players and make them miss that way, and he can also break tackles to pick up extra yards.
In tight areas, Miller has a plus grade due to his ability to be shifty and agile with defenders around him.
He's got good balance with natural body control, and he runs with his pad level low, which is good.
One area that really impresses me about Miller is the fact that he looks like the most athletic player on the field. He's got plus athletic ability and really looks impressive athletically compared to the players around him.
Final Grade (1-10 Scale): 9.0
