Both will play running back.

Both potential ratings are the same.

Thanks in advance!!!

Cooke, because I personally prefer a speedy, elusive running back. Although the double chin makes me want to lean a different route..

He's got the beer gut to match don't worry he still runs a solid 4.5 lol

I do like the work ethic on Miller though.  I bet he would grow nicely, but Cooke has the skills you want in a tailback - speed and elusiveness, as well as technique and athelticism.

But Cooke is also very good.

Miller for me, but unlike most, I don't lean as heavily on SPD and ELU as I do STR with RBs.  I filter with a minimum number at SPD and STR and then sort through the guys with the highest STR.  I run a heavy pass offense (currently #5 passing offense D1AA in Camp), and my slowest running back is still the #2 rusher in the conference with over 1100 yards, averaging 6.1 ypc and is #2 in D1AA in TDs with 16.  He's a junior and is slower than either one of your guys (74 SPD), but has a STR of 88.  My next slowest guy (still slower than both or yours) only gets sparing work with only 69 carries, but he has 500 yards rushing for a 7.2 ypc averge.  Who knows what those two would do if I ran a run heavy offense.

A few seasons back under a different ID, I lost my starting DIII RB late in the season to injury and I was pretty thin at the position because I was running an offense that leaned more toward passing, so I decided to convert a SR LB that wasn't a starter and never playing to give me some RB depth.  He had decent SPD for a DIII LB (low 50's as I remember), but his STR was around 80.  As a converted RB, he averaged almost 250 ypg over the last 3 or 4 games of the season.  Almost outrushed my injured starter in half the amount of games played, so I decided to start looking more at STR and have since.

Cook will be the better receiver out of the backfield and a decent runner.  Miller is the better runner hands down. 
         So it depends on if you pass more or run more .

Cooke....easy decision.  However, I do appreciate the comments on STR....it is somewhat under rated at the RB position.  But I have had excellent results running the ball with lower STR players.

if harris the wishbone guru says Cooke then I best start Cooke!
12/29/2012 11:14 PM
So far the Vote is 4 for Cooke-3 for Miller!

I guess you could consider this either way a win-win solution.  Either Miller gets moving on improving, or Cooke runs wild.

My overall rating on my spreadsheet has COOKE AT 75.395 AND Miller at 72.245

SO I would go with Cooke and run a 60/40 or 70/30 dist.
