Lamar Miller to play lead role in Miami-- Fri Mar 1 9:30 pm --
Second-year RB to take over starting job in Dolphins' backfield
The Miami Dolphins aren't even hiding the fact they expect Lamar Miller to replace Reggie Bush as the team's starter in 2013. Inside the team's headquarters there's no talk about Miller competing with former second-round pick Daniel Thomas, or one of the other young tailbacks on the roster. And there's very little discussion about adding another veteran tailback once Bush signs with another team, say the Lions or the Chargers (that's the word on the street). The future of the franchise's running game is being put in the hands of the former University of Miami standout, whom the team traded up to get in the fourth round of last year's draft, which featured his stock dropping because of a shoulder injury he played with at UM.

FF Today's Take:Miller looked promising albeit in limited action in 2012 as a rookie. The shifty 21-year-old had an impressive 4.9 yards per carry. If he can replicate that feat in 2013 with the 200 to 250 carries he's expected to receive, the Miami-native will be in line for a tremendous season.
