Beyond the Combine:
HT: 6-1 WT: 199
YR: JR Pos: CB
2012: 44 tackles (27 unassisted), 4 tfl, 1.5 sacks, 2 INT, 14 PBUs, 16 defl, 1 FF, 1 block
Plays with good pad level and posture
Shows quickness out of his breaks
Good straight-line speed
Good ball skills
Good instincts and vision when in zone coverage
Needs to play under more control
Man to man technique needs improvement
Doesn’t use his hands very good in man to man
Misses too many tackles
Allows WRs too much space at times
Milliner possesses the tools needed to be successful on the next level. At 6-1 198 he has good size and he plays with a good motor. He needs to learn to attack with more control. His lack of control causes him to miss more tackles than he should. His open field tackling needs work. I would like to see Milliner improve his man to man technique, especially his press coverage. His lack of technique allows the good WRs too much space and they take advantage of it. Milliner does display impressive footwork which is a definite plus if you can get him to refine his technique. He has great instincts in zone coverage and displays good ball skills. He shows quickness out of his breaks and the ability to run with WRs. I do believe Milliner can play on the next level, but he will need to improve his basic fundamentals and coverage technique to be successful.
Watch Milliner in action! (Links to his highlights below)
Alabama Football: Players Key to Crimson Tide’s Success vs. Mississippi St.
BEST OF MAXIM
I’m sure everyone will be rushing out to buy this football at their local Walmart.
Quality control sure isn’t what is used to be.

Alabama head football coach Nick Saban's press conference this week included one of those simple little questions that Saban responds with an answer several times more complex. The query this time around? Whether or Saban enjoys the Iron Bowl week lead up to the annual rivalry game against Auburn?
"I enjoy coaching, I enjoy the challenges. I enjoy working with the...
Alabama has a chance to make it to the SEC and national title games, but one thing stands in the Crimson Tide's way--instate rival Auburn.
Alabama learned a lesson two weeks ago when it lost to Texas A&M--don't overlook your opponent. This week the Crimson Tide must focus on Auburn and block out what could happen in the aftermath of a win--trips to the SEC and national championships.
The University of Alabama is looking forward to hosting another sellout crowd when the Crimson Tide football team hosts the Auburn Tigers on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and the UA Athletic Ticket Office wishes to remind fans of the potential danger of being sold counterfeit tickets at Tide home games.
If fans have any doubt about the validity of their tickets, they...
Each week the Alabama coaching staff selects players of the week from the previous game. The Crimson Tide had a relatively easy time of it last Saturday with a 49-0 win over Western Carolina and starters did not get a lot of playing time. The Bama coaches took note of the men in the trenches for most of the honors.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama players don't even have to leave their couches to be one of the big winners in college football's national championship sweepstakes.
The second-ranked Crimson Tide (10-1, 7-0 Southeastern Conference) has benefited the past two years from a pair of late-season upsets by other teams, proving that patience is sometimes as important as perfection...
At his weekly Monday press conference, Alabama head coach Nick Saban made it clear he didn't want to discuss anything--aka, Kansas State, Oregon, the BCS--except Auburn.
Mark Ingram to Trent Richardson to Eddie Lacy to Derrick Henry. The very recent tradition of superlative Alabama Crimson Tide running backs continues with the kid who broke the all time high school rushing record.
Henry ran for 482 yards on Friday night against Perry (Fla.) Taylor County to bring his career total up to 11,612 yards.
He broke the record of somebody you’ve never...
Alabama scored six offensive touchdowns in the 49-0 shutout of Western Carolina on Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Cornerback Deion Belue retrieved a backwards pass ruled a fumble and carried the ball for a 57-yard touchdown to widen the gap to 42-0 right before halftime. The second quarter score was the third non-offensive touchdown of the year and first fumble return for six points.
Cornerback John Fulton (turf toe) looked back to his old self at Alabama's practice Tuesday afternoon. Watch a video of him and the rest of the Alabama defensive backs inside...
