Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill believes that running back Lamar Miller leads the competition to replace Reggie Bush within the team.

Ryan Tannehill has said that Lamar Miller has been doing a "great job" during his second off-season with the Miami Dolphins.

The 2012 fourth-round Draft pick is looking to replace Reggie Bush in the AFC East side's starting lineup, following the running back's move to the Detroit Lions earlier this year.

The team's starting quarterback told NFL Total Access: "Lamar Miller right now, he's doing a great job this off-season, really has a great handle on the offense and he's doing a great job protecting.

"They can [all] run the ball but being able to understand the pass game, understand the checkdowns and where they're protecting really makes a big difference and makes me more comfortable."

Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee are also looking to earn a spot within the team.
