University of Miami's Lamar Miller has generated plenty of buzz leading up to the draft, with some draftniks ranking him as a top-three running back. While I disagree that he deserves that high of a ranking, he certainly belongs on the top 10 list.
I am not sold that a guy who spent just one year as a feature back and amassed just 335 career carries could master an NFL playbook, so if I were in the war room on draft day, I would be wary of overvaluing him.
Still, you can't deny Miller's appeal.
His 1,272 rushing yards last season place him third atop the Hurricanes' single-season all-time list—no small feat given Miami's rich football history.
He amassed those numbers playing through a left shoulder injury sustained early in the season that plagued him all year.
And make no mistake, Miller is as fast as he is tough.
Miller passed the most sacred test of them all with flying colors, running the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds at the combine.
