Looks like all the grains were getting crushed. I was just worried about getting too fine of a crush. The passive roller stuck and that's why the mill got easier to turn. It was also kind of grinding the grain as opposed to crushing it and letting it pass through because of this.
Once I figured that out, I just put a cupful of grain in at a time to ensure the passive roller was spinning. I got a much better crush this way. Looks a lot better. Don't worry, I won't bother with a pic.
I think I'll modify my hopper to make sure it directs the grain right between the rollers and try to set something up to protect the ends of the passive roller. Grains were getting stuck there and causing it to lock up.
