“It just comes back in the top three rounds or not in the top three rounds,” Millard said.
“I was not in the top three.”
Stills, a wide receiver, said his grade “talked about anywhere in the first four rounds.
“I don't know how to explain it, but I think it's more of a safe way for them to be able to tell us something. The wording of it is a little bit funny.”
As a fullback, though, Millard (6-feet-2, 256 pounds) is in a unique position; he's not likely to be selected very high because of the position he plays, so there might not be as much incentive for him to return for his senior season.
“You can't really move up as far as the first round,” Millard said. “You have to take that into account.”
Millard has been used as a jack-of-all-trades at Oklahoma; he's played a more blocking fullback role, while also showing the ability to run with and catch the football.
“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.”
When asked what incentive he has to stay, Millard said, “The degree. Going through my senior year with a class and a group of guys I came in with. Try to win a national championship, win another Big 12 championship. Be one of the few classes to beat Texas four years in a row. Go up and play Notre Dame. Those are all reasons to stay.”
KING WILL PLAY INSIDE
Defensive tackle Stacy McGee didn't travel with the team and won't play in Friday's Cotton Bowl following his Dec. 24 DUI arrest, meaning senior defensive end David King will probably play lots of snaps inside.
