Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding size. Hits with some thump and is an efficient lead blocker. Nice run skills -- shows vision, patience and subtle moves to avoid direct contact. Soft hands. Adjusts well to the ball and possesses better body control and agility than a traditional iso-lead blocking fullback. Blue-collar worker. Leads by example. Quietly competitive. Determined short-yardage runner capable of finding a crease and slamming through the line. Has a special-teams temperament (has delivered knockout shots). Solid all-around production. Versatile, lines up all over the field (fullback, tailback, in the slot) and does everything well (can run, block, catch and cover kicks). Very intelligent and football smart.

Weaknesses

Limited burst, change of direction and short-area explosion -- one-speed runner with no gear change. Average power and tackle-breaking ability. Shows some tightness as a route runner. Not a true hammer as a lead blocker and does not jolt defenders on contact. Might not be 100 percent as a rookie following ACL surgery.

Bottom Line

A versatile jack-of-all-trades, Milllard brings the most value as a core special-teams contributor. Is best suited for a role as a fullback in a matchup-based offense where he could fill a variety of roles. Has been very reliable and durable throughout his career, but late October ACL injury could still require some rehabilitation as a rookie and could affect his draft standing.
