90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Lamar Miller

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at running back Lamar Miller.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.

LAMAR MILLER

2014 Review:

2014 was Miller's best year as a pro. He had 216 rushing attempts for a total of 1,099 rushing yards. Miller scored 8 rushing touchdowns and who can forget the 97 yard run against the New York Jets.

Why he might progress:

This will be Miller's second year in Bill Lazor's offense and he is coming off a great season for a running back.

One can hope that the offensive line will be better and allow Miller some more running room. With Branden Albert coming back from injury and Mike Pouncey being moved back to center, Miller should be able to find more success running the ball this year.

Why he might regress:

The Dolphins drafted Jay Ajayi in the 2015 NFL Draft. Though I do not expect Ajayi to beat out Miller, anything is likely.

Miller also has to be able to hold onto the ball better. He had three fumbles last year which were all recovered by the opposing team.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Miller will likely be the Dolphins starting running back this season, unless Ajayi lights it up in the preseason.
