The Miami Dolphins aren't even hiding the fact they expect Lamar Miller to replace Reggie Bush as the team's starter in 2013.

Inside the team's headquarters there's no talk about Miller competing with former second-round pick Daniel Thomas, or one of the other young tailbacks on the roster.

And there's very little discussion about adding another veteran tailback once Bush signs with another team, say the Lions or the Chargers (that's the word on the street).

The future of the franchise's running game is being put in the hands of the former University of Miami standout, whom the team traded up to get in the fourth round of last year's draft, which featured his stock dropping because of a shoulder injury he played with at UM.

What makes Miller, who is presently training with Pete Bommarito for the season, so special?
