At Oklahoma, he's typically been used as a blocking fullback. A few days before the Cotton Bowl, Millard said he's heard lots of different possibilities for his role in an NFL offense.
“Some people say that I'll play more of a running back,” Millard said. “I've heard a bunch of different things, more of a W or a tight end that doesn't necessarily have his hand down on the line.”
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has typically advised players against early NFL Draft entry, saying players are wise to maximize their earning potential.
Despite the likelihood that Millard's draft situation won't improve with another season, Stoops said in January that he still believes his decision to return was the right one.
“You're gonna be running into Ray Lewis'; you need to be ready for it,” Stoops said. “I think another year in the weight room — he's a true junior — is gonna help him. Getting more experience, those kinds of things.”
