Popeye face:

Twitter: @DMilli28

What his tweets tell us: NOTHING. All he does is retweet useless shit and respond to people. He’s still a better follow than half of Time’s linkbait-y list.

Potential Berman nicknames: Kiki, just so he can sing both parts of the “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” duet.

Nicest comparison: Charles Tillman
Droppiest comparison: Carlos Rogers

Noteworthy Combine results 4.37 40 yard dash and a 36″ vertical jump

Strengths: Physicality, experience
Weaknesses: Doesn’t back-peddle because Nick Saban doesn’t’ teach that or something

Loved by: Samantha Steele
Hated by: Christian Ponder
Because: The Dumbo ride is crazy romantic

What scouts are saying:

Who wants him: Teams who are desperate for quick help at corner.

Who will take him: Cleveland! Milliner has been mentioned everywhere from 1 to 10 in this draft. Seems pretty high for a guy everybody wants to compare to Carlos Rogers, but Cleveland does make sense. Their pass defense was horrid in the five games Joe Haden missed, and they weren’t that great when he was healthy.

Could he wind up going number 1? MAYBE (but no, definitely not)

Immediate impact: He’ll provide an immediate boost to any bad secodary.

Down the road: His ceiling probably isn’t as high as other corners drafted in the top ten.
