Overview

Coming out of high school, Mills was a three-star recruit. In addition to lettering for four years as an offensive tackle, Mills played three years of basketball and threw shot put for the track and field team. As a football player, Mills was a two-time all-district selection, and he was an honorable mention for all-state for his senior season. Mills has three brothers and three sisters, but his cousin is the name that most people will recognize. Mills is the cousin of former Louisiana Tech and current Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams. Mills won’t be mistaken for a cornerback anytime soon, but his athletic prowess is obvious in his play.



As a true freshman, Mills played in seven games, and logged five starts at left guard. As a sophomore, Mills played in five games, and started four games at right tackle. As a junior, Mills started at right tackle in all of the Tech’s 13 games. In his senior year, Mills started all 12 games at right tackle. He was named to the All-WAC first-team.

Analysis

Strengths

Mills has tremendous size and power in his upper and lower body. Mills is always hustling, and doesn't stop working until the whistle blows. He shows good awareness on stunts and sells play action passes very well. Mills has a very good first step. Takes a powerful inside step to cut off defenders. Showcases this step and balance on seal and reach blocks. Coordinated, with a good pass set.

Weaknesses

Inconsistent in his aiming point. Will grab outside of the chest plate, which will result in holding calls. Mills isn't very quick off the snap, and can be beaten almost instantaneously because of this. Mills can also be found lunging at his blocks too often. Never played left tackle.

Bottom Line

Mills is a powerful player with tremendous size. He combines this size with great hustle. Aside from a couple starts at guard his freshman season, Mills has only played at right tackle, but scouts will likely see him as a versatile prospect capable of playing left tackle, right tackle, or guard. Mills could find himself as a top-100 selection.
