Player Overview

Greg Milhouse Jr. has had an interesting journey that ultimately has him in the discussion to be drafted on day 3.  He started his career at Appalachian State which is no world beater and left for greener pastures at Campbell. Full disclosure I haven't been able to find out why he left but my top two guesses would be playing time and to be closer to home (he's from North Carolina). Whatever the reason not many players transfer out of a lowly conference to an even lowlier conference (no offense Campbell U and Pioneer) to get their names on NFL scouts radar's. Milhouse Jr. did and it's working. Several NFL scouts attended Milhouse Jr's Pro Day and if drafted he would be the first player drafted from Campbell ever.

Strengths

  • Athletic DT with a quick twitch. Able to shoot the gaps and create pressure from the interior.
  • Versatile he played a 3-4 while at Appalachian State and played in a 4-3 when he transferred to Campbell.
  • Strong and disruptive at the point of attack. Stout and has great anchor ability. Active hands.
  • Has a great motor, can pursue and finish.

Weaknesses

  • Didn't play against quality competition.
  • Quick but needs to work on leverage and balance as well as footwork.
  • Vision can be lost while in a scrum.


Let's see his work: 

Defensive tackle Greg Milhouse looked terrific at Campbell pro day.

He measured 6013, 295 pounds, completed 26 reps on the bench, posted a vertical jump of 33.5 inches and a broad of 9-3. His 40s were clocked in the 4.8s and he posted a 3-cone time of 7.5.

I'm told afterward he interviewed with a bunch of teams including the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles.

Milhouse is described as "the real deal" by scouts and a "hard worker who'll make an NFL roster". - Tony Pauline


How He Would Fit on the Redskins

Greg Milhouse Jr. is an underrated player that is just starting to make a name for himself on a national level. In a draft filled with talented defensive linemen Milhouse flashes talent worthy of a draft pick as well. The challenge for Milhouse as with any draft prospect is translating his talent to the NFL level and still remaining productive. Milhouse himself prides himself on being a hard worker. I think he will be drafted and make a 53 man roster. Milhouse is projected at a 3-tech DT in a 4-3 in the NFL. It is probably the spot he will be best at going forward. Though he did pay in a 3-4 while at Appalachian State. The attention Milhouse Jr. has gotten since his Pro Day are from 4-3 teams too. He's a player I'll be rooting for on draft day though he is not likely to be a Redskin.
