Projected Round

Bio: 
Two-year starter at strong-side linebacker who earned Honorable Mention All-ACC after finishing second on the team with 6.5 sacks and third with 11 tackles for loss. Added 58 tackles and an interception. His 17.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks in 2015 led the Eagles, adding 60 tackles and two forced fumbles.
Pos: 
Undersized but explosive college linebacker with potential in a variety of next level systems. Aggressive, plays with a nonstop motor and viciously lays his shoulder pads into ball handlers. Covers a lot of area on the field, has an explosive burst to the action and plays bigger than his listed size. Quick, easily changes direction and moves well laterally. Sells out on the blitz, fast up the field defending the run and breaks down well. Remains disciplined with his assignments and does not bite on play action passes. Gets depth on pass drops.
Neg: 
Lacks the height and size to play outside linebacker on Sunday. May not be fast enough to line-up at safety.
Analysis: 
Milano is a tough, hard-nosed prospect who gets the most from his ability but has size limitations. He offers possibilities as a run and chase linebacker or strong safety and at the very least should be an asset on special teams.
