Four running backs are poised to make this the greatest running back effort in the history of the Miami Dolphins. That's saying a lot considering their offensive line is still a work in progress at this point of the preseason.
Ronnie Brown, Ricky Williams, Patrick Cobbs, and Lex Hilliard.
Cobbs blasted onto the scene last year in the game versus the Houston Texans when he was the recipient of the 80-yard TD pass from a version of the "wildcat" no one had seen up to that point.
But Lex who??
Ok so Hilliard fumbled during the game last night in the team's somewhat sloppy effort vs the Bucs.
However, Hilliard has run so hard in all of the team's preseason games that he has become a fan favorite and should be able to stick on the team.
Lex Hilliard is capable of shutting the game down if anything should happen to the Dolphins other running backs. As a workhorse style running back, He is that GOOD!!
Don't forget about Lousaka Polite who earned a spot after injuries allowed him to get picked up and play consistently last season. Polite looks to be starting the fullback by the time the Falcons host the Dolphins on Sept. 13th.
