3. TCU RB Kendre Miller
Saquon Barkley, now two years removed from a torn ACL, has returned to form in 2022. He has put together one of the best campaigns in the NFL and is set to receive a big payday in the offseason. This could lead to him and the Giants parting ways. If that is the case, the Giants will need to address the running back position. TCU’s Kendre Miller could be a solid addition.
Miller has quietly put together a strong collegiate career. During his freshman season in 2020, he appeared in nine total games. With his limited workload, he still made his presence felt. He carried the ball just 54 times, recording 388 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
In 2021, Miller saw his workload increase. While playing in 10 games, he recorded 623 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 83 total carries. Through the air, he added 12 receptions for 117 receiving yards and one touchdown.
Now, Miller has looked like arguably the best running back in the nation in 2022. And he has played a key role in TCU earning a spot in the CFP.
Miller has set career-highs across the board in 2022. While appearing in 13 games, he has recorded 1,342 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns on 216 carries. Through the air, he has added 16 receptions for 116 receiving yards.
At 6-0 and 206 pounds, Miller has the size and speed to beat most defenders. He could be a legitimate option out of the backfield for any team in the NFL. If the Giants look to address the running back position, he could be a solid option.
