2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jerron McMillian, SS, Maine

After a strong combine performance where he ran a 4.56 40 yard dash, Maine Black Bears safety prospect Jerron McMillian was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round. Prior to the draft, the Packers opted to release strong safety Nick Collins and that's precisely where McMillian fits in where he will compete with Charlie Peprah for the starting spot.

Collins will certainly be missed, but finding a suitable replacement is just a part of the game. Packers fans can only hope McMillian is a gem in the rough coming from a small school. He does not shy away from contact and will contribute as an all-around athlete. In Green Bay's 3-4 defense, the strong safety must line up all over the field, cover players of all sizes and of course, blitz from exotic formations. McMillian is at his best in run support and plays fast and decisively.

He is quick to diagnose the play and is more than willing to throw his body into the fray. Against the pass, he can struggle if he needs to turn his body all the way around in one quick motion. His over-aggression can sometimes get him caught flat-footed. All in all, McMillian looks to be a good fit for Dom Capers' aggressive defensive style.
