04/17/2013 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: MASSACHUSETTS: OL Stephane Milhim (6-4, 314, 5.14)...A college left tackle, Milhim needs to develop his anchor to stay balanced through contact, but is an intriguing athlete with the tools to earn NFL playing time down the road. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/07/2013 - 2013 UMass Pro Day: Stephane Milhim drops 14 pounds, runs faster at UMass pro day...Representatives from 13 NFL teams gathered at Massachusetts' pro day on March 4, where nine players worked out. Due to frigid weather conditions, the pro day was moved inside the New England Patriots' bubble practice field. Stephane Milhim, OT (6-foot-3 7/8, 300 pounds) - Milhim ran the 40-yard dash in 5.15 and 5.14 seconds, had a 4.75-second short shuttle and a 7.72-second three-cone drill. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-1 broad jump. A left shoulder surgery prevented him from participating in the bench press. Milhim dropped 14 pounds since the NFL Scouting Combine, which factored into him posting faster times in the runs than in Indy. Milhim could be just the second UMass player drafted since 2000. Offensive tackle Vladimir Ducasse was selected by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/06/2013 - 2013 UMass Pro Day: Last year it was offensive lineman Josh Samuda who used a performance at University of Massachusetts pro day to earn a spot in Miami Dolphins camp. Before him, Jeremy Horne, Jeromy Miles, James Ihedigbo and of course Victor Cruz all turned strong showings at UMass pro days into NFL training camp invites and eventually contracts. On Monday, nine Minutemen hoped to follow in their footsteps as they worked out for 13 NFL teams at the annual event.
UMass' relationship with the New England Patriots and Gillette Stadium allowed pro day to be held in the Patriots' indoor practice bubble instead of at McGuirk Stadium. The indoor facility eliminated weather as a factor, allowing many players to go shirtless in an attempt to show off the physiques they'd been working on with personal strength coaches since the end of the season.
Of the participating Minutemen, offensive lineman Stephane Milhim appears to have the best chance to get drafted. He participated in the NFL's scouting combine last month and came to pro day hoping to build on the solid impressions he made there. "You always want to do a little bit better, which I did, so I was really happy today," said Milhim, who improved in the standing broad jump, the vertical jump, the 40-yard dash and the shuttle run. "I believe in myself. I've worked very hard. I've come a long way. I thank God every day that I'm here, but I think my hard work has paid off." - Matt Vautour, GazetteNet
03/06/2013 - 2013 UMass Pro Day: Milhim said he wasn't even sure if he'd watch the draft, which begins April 25. "I'm going to be sitting at my house. I probably won't even watch it. I'll just be at my house with my phone on hoping to get a call from somebody," he said. "It doesn't really matter. Everyone hopes to get drafted. If it doesn't happen it wasn't meant to happen. As long as I can get an opportunity (to go to somebody's camp), that's all I can ask for." - Matt Vautour, GazetteNet
03/06/2013 - 2013 UMass Pro Day: The UMass football team held its annual NFL Pro Day at Gillette Stadium's Dana-Farber Field House on Monday, March 4. The event was attended by scouts from 13 NFL teams who were on hand to check out the Minutemen's top senior talent as the NFL Draft will come up in just over six weeks.
Michael Cox, Perry McIntyre, Stephane Milhim, Quinton Sales, Nick Speller, Darren Thellen, Deion Walker, Alan Williams, and Hafis Williams took part in the Pro Day event. For Milhim, it was his second workout in front of scouts after taking part in the NFL Combine in Indianapolis just over a week ago. - UMass football
03/05/2013 - 2013 UMass Pro Day: While Thellen is considered a longshot to get drafted, offensive lineman Stephane Milhim has been projected in some mock drafts as a late-round pick. The 6-5, 315-pounder had a strong showing at the NFL combine and tested well again yesterday. "I did better in, I think, the broad jump, the vertical and, I think, the 40 and my shuttle, actually," Milhim said.
"I think that he had better numbers (than the combine) from what I can hear," Molnar said. "But I really believe Stephane can make it in the NFL. He's very, very smart; he's got enough size; athletic; very flexible; loves football; practices hard." "There's no reason why he can't make it in the NFL," he added. "I really believe he'll be one of those guys that sticks around." - Adam Kurkjian, The Boston Herald
