Strengths
McMillan is an athletic linebacker with ncie size and the ability to move from sideline to sideline; gets depth in his drops during pass coverage; wraps up the ball carrier when tackling; Capable of making plays all over the field.
Weaknesses
Isn't overly strong and can get tied up on blocks. Slow to diagnose the action on occasion. Has adequate speed and power but does not excel at either one.
Overall Analysis
McMillan was a productive college player that projects well to the NFL. He will be scheme limited and isn't a great fit for teams that play a 3-4 defense but in a 4-3 set he can be a 3 down linebacker, although he will need to improve his recognition in order to succeed in the NFL. He should be able to start early on and looks to have a long career ahead of him as a blue collar NFL starter.
