Lamar Miller weighing draft options

The Miami Herald is reporting that Hurricanes running back Lamar Miller is considering leaving after his redshirt-sophomore season to enter the NFL Draft, but only if he is projected to be a 1st-round pick.

Miller could be the 2nd RB off the board

This time of year players typically flat out deny any rumors about them bolting for the pro game, especially sophomores, so Miller’s admission that he’s weighing his options leads me to believe he’ll turn pro.

He won’t be a 1st-round lock, but this is a weak class for running backs and he will have an excellent chance to come off the board within the first 50 picks.

Running backs are fragile, and their stock can take a nose dive with one injury or one mediocre season, so Miller would be wise to capitalize on his recent success and enter the draft.
