    Dolphins running back Lamar Miller "is a first- and second-down back," the Sun-Sentinel says. "Daniel Thomas is the third-down back. He’s a better pass blocker, receiver, and short-yardage runner."

    The paper dismisses Miller's stated goal of 1,500 rushing yards, saying Miller won't get the 300-plus carries needed to approach that number.

    "Miller has the speed and moves to be an effective back in the NFL, but so do about 30 or 40 other guys. Miller has to prove he’s an effective ball carrier," the report said. "The best way to judge Miller is to look at his yards per carry, and if he’s around 4.3, and he stays healthy, it’s been a fairly productive year."

    Thomas could be that guy for those special plays on 3rd down. Nice decision to give him some cuts in the backfield.
