Lanyae Miller is from Fresno State. He was a College backup running back on a talented Fresno State squad. He ran a 4.43 in the forty and weighs in at 232lbs. Holy moly, Batman!
Miller is known for long runs and power and speed when backed up against the goal line. He's faster than Bush and also a younger man than Bush. He will come cheaper too. Miller is a shrewd pickup that hasn't gotten a lot of attention. But it seems that McKenzie is using his magic to load the team with depth. There is no reason why the Raiders can't provide depth behind their superstar lottery picks.
Lanyae Miller along with the other free agents the Raiders signed this offseason are a start of something great. They recently signed several defensive lineman, a nose tackle, defensive backs, and a quality backup quarterback round. Look them up.
Missing from the list are linebackers. Because the Raider are going from a 4-3 to a 3-4, in terms of roster turnover, the Raiders, or any team with a 4-3 roster, have too many lineman and too few linebackers. The Raiders already picked up a few defensive lineman, so they are increasing the likelihood that they will target quality linebackers in the draft. Just my feeling for now. Things may change of course as we get closer to the draft. Free agents will be available and so on. Go Raiders!
There is so much to say so little time.
