Arm length: 32 ”
Hand: 8 3/4”
40 Time: 4.37
- Really Good in coverage, capable of matching up with both outside and slot receivers one-on-one.
- Physical corner, who likes to jam receivers and reroute them
- Very strong in run support
- Displays natural coverage ability, and rarely bites on fakes
- Coached by Nick Saban and played against a high level of SEC competition
- Has solid ball skills
- Has the ability to be a very good corner at the next level
- Isn’t as natural in his back pedal as you’d like to see
- Needs more reps in zone coverage
- Doesn’t highpoint the ball well, not as good against jump balls
- Will likely never be an interception machine.
- Gets lazy at times when trying to tackle
Milliner is the best corner in this draft class, and could very well go in the top 10 picks. SEC corners have been the first of their position selected in each of the last three drafts in the top 10, and all three (Joe Haden, Patrick Peterson, and Morris Claiborne) have performed well early. Milliner might not be as good as those three, but he’s at least in the discussion. He needs to expand his game some, and might not be the best fit early on in every system, but he has the talent to succeed.
