He is a guy I really like. I could see him in our offense. He reminds me a little bit of the MOOSE.
we don't run that offense anymore however....think Millard will find a way onto an NFL roster but he's just a good football player without adding anything unique to any one position.
Perhaps we don't run it anymore. Or maybe we could carry one less RB and keep a true FB. If we could find a FB who can run and catch the ball as well as block then I'd think about using one.
I will agree this is a football player as to whether there is a position on the boys well... I would be smiling if we had Millard vs Tanner and pity the CB's trying to take him down.
I really would like to see a lead blocker on the roster. he really isnt that guy, more of a rb/fb hybrid, but if he can be a decent blocker, plus do short yardage, id like it.
Oklahoma FB Trey Millard (injury): Oklahoma had plenty to celebrate following its win over Texas Tech, but it wasn't all good news for the Sooners. Senior fullback Trey Millard was lost for the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee. Millard doesn't have eye-popping stats (97 rushing yards, two total touchdowns), but he's a very good blocker and is a reliable outlet receiver (11 catches for 78 yards). The senior captain's leadership will also be missed, as the Sooners pursue a conference championship.
Actually, he is a pretty darn good lead blocker. He will clean the hole out and then some. I really like this kid and that's saying a whole bunch as I bleed Burnt Orange.
I think we need to find a durable Runningback who can move the chains before grasping for straws looking for the next Moose.
You know I love this kid pops. I think this offense is really missing a dynamic FB that can lead block. I would be very happy if we ended up with Millard.
coming off an acl tear? I'd be willing to spend a late rd pick on him, but prior to the injury sites were giving him a 3rd-4th rd grade.
FB's always fall in the draft. They are just not a highly valued commodity. I would not have a problem spending a late round pick on the kid, even with the ACL injury.
Hes a big, physical, ATHLETE. No complaints here.
JC Copleland, it'd be like drafting an extra Olineman
At 6-2, 260 he is big enough to be used exactly how they are using TE Hanna.
