Starting tailback: Lamar Miller vs. Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee
Miller averaged 4.9 yards per carry in his limited opportunities last season. The Dolphins are excited about the big play producing skills this former Hurricanes standout possesses. Thomas has rushed for 906 yards and scored five touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons. But the 2011 second-round pick has a dismal 3.5 yards per carry average. Gillislee turned his one promising season at UF into an opportunity to serve as the underdog in this battle.
