The Dallas Cowboys sure do love these MAC players, don't they?

After drafting Kavon Frazier and Darius Jackson in the sixth round, the former Toledo Rocket safety has reportedly signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

MIlligan played some JUCO ball out in California before having the second-most tackles on the UAB roster in 2014 (54) with six pass breakups. Of course, that program shut down, and continued to be a hard-hitting safety on the Rocket defense. The 5-foot-11 safety had 48 tackles as a senior, four for loss. He also had two interceptions, five passes defended, and forced three fumbles. He had four games with at least eight tackles, including 10 at Massachusetts. He had a pair of pass breakups with nine tackles in the team's bowl win over Temple.

Including Frazier, the former CMU safety, the Cowboys have taken five defensive players in the draft.
