                HT:    6-1                WT:     199 YR:    JR                 Pos:    CB   Notables: 2012: 44 tackles (27 unassisted), 4 tfl, 1.5 sacks, 2 INT, 14 PBUs, 16 defl, 1 FF, 1 block Pros Good size Long arms 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 Impressive footwork Cons 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   Thoughts 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!
