NFL Mock Draft 2012: Lamar Miller Drops To Kansas City Chiefs In Third Round

The latest 2012 NFL Mock Draft from Draftek has the Kansas City Chiefs finding an incredible gem in the third round in Miami running back Lamar Miller. While it's not surprising to see a running back tumble in the draft, it's nice to see one of the draft's most heralded running backs available fall to the Chiefs in the third round -- much like Jamaal Charles did a few years ago.

It's also fortuitous because the Chiefs would likely make the move with Charles coming off of Injured Reserve from a torn ACL. Miller would not only provide the necessary complement but insurance as well for the Chiefs running game in 2012. Charles will take some time to get back into exemplary game form even if he's 100 percent healthy. Thus, Miller becomes an immediate help to the Chiefs' offense.

Miller had 227 carries for 1,272 yards and 9 touchdowns this season for the Miami Hurricanes.
