Milner did not have much of an impact his first two seasons at Georgia, combining for just 92 yards on 5 receptions in 2003 and 2004. As a junior, he showed some potential, hauling in 14 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns. He continued his progression and had a fine senior year, earning All SEC 1st Team honors after catching 30 balls for 425 yards and three touchdowns.
Milner has the look of a fine receiving tight end. He has a good frame, and may be able to carry more weight in the future. He is also an excellent athlete, that has quickness in and out of his cuts, and the ability to adjust to the ball while it is in the air. Milner also has the speed to get down the field and make things happen.
At this point, Milner may need more time to develop. He has really only been a factor for one full season, and he still needs work on his game. He is not a great blocker at this point and will have to improve in this area. He also will drop some passes from time to time, and for a player who’s real impact is as a receiver, that is alarming.
Milner has a lot of upside and has the talent to really develop at the next level. If he can get more consistent with his hands, he could be an excellent receiving threat in the NFL.
