Lonyae Miller
Position: RB
Class: 4Sr
School: Fresno State
Conference: Western Athletic
HT: 5-11.5
WT: 221
40 Time: 4.49
Biography: Junior rushing is included 68/354/4 after career numbers of 120/812/7 as a junior. Posted 609 yards rushing in his sophomore season.

Positives: Nice-sized back with tremendous measurables. Runs hard on the inside, displays a lot of strength and carries the pile. Puts his shoulders into defenders and runs over them, picking up yardage off initial contact. Falls forward when tackled. Possesses an above-average or burst and rarely brought down by the first defender.

Negatives: Struggles when he must quickly cut back against the grain and loses a lot of momentum changing direction. Must turn up the intensity as a blocker. Cannot elude defenders. Lacks the speed and agility to turn the corner.

Analysis: Miller is a physically gifted athlete who was slowed by injuries as a junior and struggled seeing action behind Ryan Matthews last season. He has the physical skills to contribute at the next level and can develop into a starting back for team if plays in the right system.

Projection: 5th
