Lamar Miller, who some project to be picked late in the first round, will be taken in the second round by the Denver Broncos (57th overall).
Miller is a fast back who can quickly change direction. His strength is running the ball to the outside where he relies on his speed to outrun defenders.
Measuring in at a generous 5'11" and 212 pounds, Miller is not physical enough to consistently have success running between the tackles.
The Broncos, who are looking to surround Tim Tebow with talent (to hide his flaws), will look to add a quick back to compliment the aging yet still productive Willis McGahee.
Miller's ability to get to the outside will stretch the defense and open up running room for Tebow and McGahee up the middle.
Knowshon Moreno has been a disappointment since being drafted 12th overall in the 2009 draft. His production has suffered due to a string of injuries.
The Broncos hope that the combination of McGahee and Miller will result in the balanced rushing attack they were promised when they drafted Moreno.
In the not-so-far future when the tires fall off of McGahee, Miller will take over as the starter but still split time with Moreno.
