    As much as I loved the Dolphins draft, I think the icing on the cake for me was when we selected Lamar Miller in the 4th round. Do you guys realize that he can come in day 1, and can possibly be the best running back in the NFL? The guy has the best pair of feet I've ever seen! Just check out the footage below.

    Now granted, this is a spring game, but take a look at how the dude shifts his feet and misses tackles. The change in direction is absolutely superb. I'm super excited we moved up to pick him. By far the highlight of the draft. The kid is gonna be special.

    Actually no, I didn't realize he could come in day one and possibly be the best RB in the NFL... That's probably because I've seen every game he's played. I like Miller, but he has a lot of developing to do. What's the point of setting such ridiculous expectations?

    Anything is possible. Who the heck thought Chris Johnson would be as good as he is. He had a lot of developing to do also, when he was drafted

    The kid is freakishly fast, has a very solid build, and from what I can tell he has good vision. I think he was a steal in round 4, he clearly has 1st round ability and I wouldn't be shocked at all if he has a big impact this year. It isn't uncommon at all for running backs to break out of the gate quickly.

    It's time we go old school and bring back the wishbone formation with both TE's (Clay, Fasano) lined up with tackles and Mesam at FB and Bush and Miller or Thomas at RB. Let's try it!

    I think you should go back and watch the highlights of Bush for the year and just think about the guy giving us a great one-two punch and what if they are in the same backfield?

    I wish his shoulder were 100%....Just imagine a mean "stiff arm" with everything he brings to the table.

    I agree with you. But if we see flashes of what we've seen then...this very well could be Reggie's last year in South Beach. I hope the best man prevails.

    From what I gathered, he first hurt his left shoulder on Sept. 24, which was a week 4 game of the 2011 season against Kansas State. He then played with that injury the rest of the year. From the report, sounds like a nagging separation issue possibly???

    If it weren't for Tannehill, Miller would be the pick I'm most excited about.

    Let's just hope he comes back like Frank Gore and Willis McGahee, and not like Yatil Green

    Idk, Clay will probably stay seeing as he can play 2 positions. Mastrud and Egnew are on the hotseat, imo

    Why did he drop to the 4th round? All the teams obviously saw something that made them hesitate.
