The Draft Trey Millard Bandwagon Boards Here

Haven't made a thread for him and he really deserves one. If there's a guy more worthy of being a 49er in this draft, that fits this system more perfectly than Millard, I can't think of them. Capable as a runner, capable as a receiver, already a beastly blocker, strong team leader, self-motivated, the type of guy who will run through a wall for you if you told him to do it, extremely athletic with outstanding leaping ability and speed.


This is Roman's wet dream right here. A guy who can come in off the bat and block well, run the ball, make catches, can contribute at FB, TE and special teams.





















Before his injury, a most likely 3rd round pick, post injury, he could be had in the late 6th round or early to mid 7th and he'd be an absolute freaking steal there.






From his ESPN draft profile




Inside Run Skills-2-Light on his feet with above-average lateral agility for the position. Shows adequate vision probing for creases. Flashes a quality burst out of cuts. Strong balance and power to pick up yards after contact. Good but not elite short-yardage runner.

Receiving Skills-2-A versatile H-back type receiving target. Strong feel as a route runner locating soft spots in underneath zone coverage. Gets out of stem clean with an adequate burst from the TE position. Excellent hands and shows very good body control adjusting to throws. Shifty and shows ability to create yards if provided with space after the catch


Competitiveness-2-Versatile and contributes in multiple roles. Above-average competiveness with everything he does on the field. Determined runner that finishes strong. Willing to do the dirty work the position requires of him.

Considering we'll need a #2 FB, all purpose runner, ST guy Millard gets my vote.
Guy can essentially fill Walker and Dixon's role. H-back plays a big role in the 9ers offense, look at what Walker did last year and what Miller did this year. They need a homerun threat for the position and Millard can provide that over what Miller can.

When will he be healthy enough to play?

49ers might have to "red-shirt" him for a season. Based on the severity of the injury, he'd likely be back in July or August but they might just want him to take longer to recover, study the offense and either join the team later on in the season or in 2015 to start.

He'd also in that scenario effectively become leverage against Miller regarding contract talks.

This too. If Miller decides he wants a bigger payday than the 49ers think he is worth, than Millard would actually be a solid replacement, an upgrade in some ways, better runner, better route runner..etc.
I'm in. Solid blocker too
Reggie Jordan, Missouri Western. Delanie Walker of this draft. Just got invited to the combine.

Seattle is going to be wack and steal this guy from us
Sure why not itz only a 7th round pick lol

He'd be a perfect replacement for Michael Robinson. Tough, loves to hit, can run and catch, hard-nosed blocker., special teams performer..etc.

Actually, Millard was hurt relatively early last season, so he should be ready to go come training camp, but not OTA's or minicamps.
