Dolphins Offseason 2012: Miami Signs Fourth Round Draft Pick Lamar Miller

The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of fourth-round draft pick Lamar Miller on Monday. Miller played his college football at the University of Miami. His contract is believed to have an expected value of $2.586 million with a signing bonus of $486,000 according to NFL.com.

In 23 games with the Hurricanes, Miller ran for 1,918 yards, scoring 15 touchdowns. He had two years of eligibility remaining at Miami, but he opted to declare for the NFL draft, where he slid to the third day.

Miller certainly has speed to give, clocking a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine. He will likely compete against running backs Reggie Bush and Steve Slaton for playing time early on in the season.

The Dolphins now have only three drafted players unsigned. Third round picks tight end Michael Egnew and defensive end Olivier Vernon and first round draft pick quarterback Ryan Tannehill have yet to finalize their contracts.
