Other colleges wanted to convert Matt Milano into a weak-side linebacker. That's why he went to Boston College to remain a safety.
BC turned him into a safety anyway, and it's worked out OK. The Buffalo Bills promoted Milano to starting weak-side linebacker for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field.
The start will be Milano's first on merit. He got his first NFL start in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals because of Ramon Humber's thumb injury. Now it's Milano's job.
Milano has become a fan favorite. The fifth-round pick has shown a play-making spark. Although he left BC with one interception over 50 games, he already has one plus a fumble recovery for a touchdown with Buffalo.
On "The Tim Graham Show," Milano discussed his development as a pro, his affinity for "Scarface" and what it was like when, the day after Doug Whaley drafted him, the Bills fired the GM and the scouting department.
