NFL.com: Lamar Miller among 2012 draft prospects poised for bigger role in '13

Reliable hands and world-class speed: Lamar Miller is ready for the 2013 season. - Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

NFL.com last Thursday posted an article listing the the 2012 draft prospects poised for bigger roles in 2013. And No. 2 on the list is none other than Dolphins running back Lamar Miller.

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling (really, who else?) on Thursday posted an article listing 10 players from the 2012 NFL Draft whom he believes are poised to take the next step in 2013. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the No. 2 spot on the list belongs to Dolphins running back Lamar Miller.

"We point out in early February that Reggie Bush became persona non grata in Miami because the team's brass believes Miller can be a "bigger, faster, better" version of Bush," Wesseling wrote in the article. "The fourth-rounder showed impressive burst with the ability to succeed between the tackles and in space. The addition of deep threat wide receiver Mike Wallace should leave Miller poised for success against few stacked boxes."

Wesseling isn't far off with that analysis, and the fact that he has just one player--Giants running back David Wilson--ranked higher than Miller on the list speaks volumes. However, Wesseling should have added that it made little sense to re-sign the wiggle-happy Bush to play in a zone-blocking scheme, especially when Miller's one-cut-and-go style of running totally fits what the Dolphins want to do up front.

Nevertheless, Miller is indeed poised to turn some heads in 2013.
