Overview:

Milano was very productive at Boston College, playing in 50 career games, where he had 141 tackles, a whopping 31.5 for loss, and 14.0 sacks, proving to be a tackling machine, and a sack machine. He has good overall size, he has good speed, he gets good pressure on the quarterback, is a sure fire tackler, and is very experienced. He is also a tough nosed player, and a defensive play maker. While he has good size, he is not the tallest linebacker, but that does not hurt his game, and he tends to miss some tackles at times. With that said, i view Milano as a late day 3 pick, probably somewhere towards the end of the day, where he will be a key special teams player, and eventually have the chance to be a starter in the NFL.
