49ers selected Oklahoma FB Trey Millard with the No. 245 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Millard (6-foot-2 3/8, 247) was an oft-utilized role player for four seasons with the Sooners, turning 98 carries into 538 yards (5.5 YPC) with 70 catches. He scored 13 all-purpose TDs and was voted All-Big 12 first-team by the conference's coaches as both a junior and senior. Millard is not a pile-driving blocker, but offers excellent versatility, smarts (33 Wonderlic), fluid athleticism, and heaps of special teams value. He tore an ACL last October, though Millard should be healthy by camp. He could be another redshirt prospect for the 49ers. May 10 - 6:42 PM

Both Mel Kiper and Todd McShay rank Oklahoma's Trey Millard as the best FB in the draft.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt liked Millard's speed (4.65) and versatility so much that he suggested last summer that the OU FB could be a tailback in the NFL. That won't happen, but Millard is a thick and competitive player who occupies defenders as opposed to bowling them over. He can line up at TE and won't embarrass himself if they call his name on a running play, either. Millard tore his ACL against Texas Tech in late October 2013 and didn't participate in the combine.

Oklahoma senior FB Trey Millard suffered a torn ACL against Texas Tech on Saturday.

This is extremely unfortunate, since Millard is the top draft-eligible prospect at his position. He isn't solely the traditional lead blocking fullback, as Millard can catch in space and be used as a ball carrier.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt notes Oklahoma senior FB Trey Millard runs in the 4.65 range.

Millard is Brandt's fifth ranked senior running back, adding "he is a big back with speed, receiving ability and is an outstanding blocker. Despite playing fullback for the Sooners, Millard has the potential to be a tailback in the NFL." Millard has reportedly been lining up at tight end this offseason as well, so his versatility as a ball carrier and H-back will surely help scouts' evaluations.

Despite technically playing a position that is falling out of favor with NFL teams, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler thinks Oklahoma senior FB Trey Millard has a chance to be a top-100 pick.

"He has some tweener traits, but is an attractive NFL prospect due to his versatility and determination with the ball in his hands and it wouldn't be a shock if he ends up as a top-100 draft pick," Brugler wrote of Millard. The Sooner is a strong lead blocker but made his presence felt as a ball carrier and receiver out of the backfield.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl calls Oklahoma senior FB Trey Millard "a grinder."

Weidl elaborates by saying Millard is "versatile and does a lot of little things well," adding the fullback is an ideal player to have on the back end of your roster. Prospects at Millard's position are rarely drafted high, but this Sooner could be a different breed thanks to his exceptional versatility and toughness. He could be selected in a similar range as new Raven Kyle Juszczyk.

Oklahoma junior FB Trey Millard will return to school for his senior season.

Millard put on a good showing in the Sooners bowl game against Texas A&M, showing the same ball carrying, receiving, and blocking skills he displayed all season. He is much more than a traditional fullback, but Millard only received a third day grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

Oklahoma junior FB Trey Millard divulged that he received a grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Board outside of the top three rounds.

Millard added "the grade wasn't a surprise, and that he's leaning one particular direction, but wouldn't divulge which direction that was." Sure, Millard is technically a fullback, and prospects at the position are rarely drafted during the first two days, but he offers so much more as a runner, pass protector, and receiver.

Oklahoma junior FB Trey Millard was given a free agent grade by SI's Tony Pauline.

This is interesting, because if Millard declares we think he has a shot to be the first fullback drafted in April. The junior is not a true power blocker, but Millard does so much more in pass protection, as a receiver, and as a runner. Pauline does say that the Sooner is a, "potential West Coast fullback effective catching the ball out of the backfield."

Oklahoma beat writer John Hoover calls Sooners junior FB Trey Millard a "perfect throwback player."

Hoover cites three plays that displayed Millard's versatility. The first was a downfield passing route that Millard had to break off and contort his body on a poorly thrown ball. Second, the senior hurdled two defenders against Texas. And finally, Millard threw a block on a goal line run that pancaked a Jayhawk defender. We really like Millard as a prospect, and with a perceived dying position, his versatility will be vital.

The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein spoke to NFL scouts that compare Oklahoma junior FB Trey Millard to former great Mike Alstott.

Millard has been a valuable member of the Sonner's offense the last few weeks, specifically against Texas. In that game, the junior ran the ball three times for 45 yards to go along with five receptions for 119 yards and a touchdown. Zierlein adds that the same scouts believe head coach Bob Stoops is doing a disservice to his offense by not giving Millard more touches. We really like the versatility Millard has shown, especially on third downs.
