2012 NFL Draft: Diamond Hunters | Offense

Here’s a look at three diamonds in the rough selected on day three who could become key factors on the offense side of the ball for their respective teams.

Rd.4No.97: Dolphins – RB Lamar Miller, Miami

Although the team spent a second round pick on running back Daniel Thomas a year ago, the Dolphins felt the need for an insurance policy in case they opt not to re-sign Reggie Bush after the 2012 season. Entering his seventh season, Bush has failed to play an entire 16 game season since his rookie year. With the addition of Miller, Miami can afford to let Bush walk away if they so desire and maintain Thomas, who will fill the role as short yardage role. Look for Miller to flourish when opportunity arises!

Rd.5No.159: Steelers – RB Chris Rainey, Florida
