Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports is reporting that Miami RB Lamar Miller will enter the 2012 NFL Draft. Miller is a redshirt sophomore that will forgo his final two years of eligibilty at the U.
Miller is reportedly signing with Drew Rosenhaus as he follows suit of teammates Tommy Streeter and Marcus Forston.
Miller is widely considered the second best back in the draft after Trent Richardson of Alabama. He is a powerful, one-cut runner with blazing straight-line speed. He ran for 1,272 yards and 9 TD’s in 2011, his first year as a full-time starter. Miller is a former prep track star that could clock in the low 4.3′s in the 40. At 5’11, 215-pounds Miller has ideal size for the position and should be taken in the first-round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Miami coach Al Golden had previously reported that Miller would require shoulder surgery in the offseason so it’s unknown as to when he’ll be able to workout for pro teams.
