David Wilson a better prospect than Lamar Miller?
Apr/12/12 08:36 AM Filed in: Lamar Miller
On NFL Network's Path to the Draft Wednesday, Mike Mayock, Charley Casserly, and Mike Lombardi all agreed that Miami's Lamar Miller is an inferior running back prospect to Virginia Tech's David Wilson.
"If you put the Miami tape on, Miller doesn't show up on third down, short yardage, or goal line," observed Mayock. Lombardi also pointed to Miller's inability to pass protect as a reason he shouldn't go particularly high in the draft. Lombardi and Mayock, meanwhile, praised Wilson's pass-protection skills. An inability to pick up the blitz can keep backs off the field early in their careers.
