Guard, American football player
Who is Bryan Millard?
Bryan Millard is a former college and professional American football player. An offensive lineman, he played offensive tackle for the University of Texas at Austin Longhorns and for the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League. From 1984 until 1991, Millard played primarily at offensive guard for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.
Millard started in 1981 and 1982 for UT-Austin, helping the Longhorns compile two consecutive second-place finishes in the Southwest Conference. In 1981, Millard's team won the Cotton Bowl Classic and received a #2 national ranking in the final AP Poll. His 1982 team lost the Sun Bowl and ranked #17 in the final AP Poll, but Millard won recognition as a first team all-conference tackle.
Millard went undrafted by the NFL in 1983, but the New Jersey Generals of the USFL drafted him in the 12th round. As a rookie, Millard helped Herschel Walker run for 1,812 yards, though a knee injury sidelined Millard in midseason. In 1984, Millard's blocking helped Walker compile 1,339 rushing yards, while fullback Maurice Carthon also gained more than a thousand yards on the ground. The Generals made the playoffs that year, but after the USFL's spring season ended, Millard left the team and joined the Seahawks in the NFL that fall.
