Scouting Report: Strengths
- Very good hands, accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness.
- McMillan accelerates quickly and possesses good straight-line speed. He shows solid ball-tracking skills and body control downfield, able to adjust to the off-target throw.
- Has elite speed and cutting ability and good hands and toughness. Lacks the ideal size, but has a similar body type to Antonio Brown.
- He plays with a smoothness and balance, and McMillan shows a knack for setting up defensive backs.
- McMillan has strong hands and is extremely competitive, and he has an innate sense of timing when it comes to elevating and high-pointing balls.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- His ability to track the ball is good enough, but McMillan too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
- He’ll be coming to the NFL from a wide-open spread offense in which he ran a limited route tree.
- He’s elusive with the ball in his hands, but he won’t break a lot of tackles. Because getting separation is going to be an issue, he’s likely going to need to line up off the line of scrimmage.
- NFL defenders may be able to knock him off his route because of his slight frame.
