Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: McMillian will have to earn his keep as a special teams leader in Green Bay. He certainly possesses the size and speed to be a factor, and that could buy him enough time to develop into a role player on defense.

  • 5'11" Height
  • 30 5/8" Arm Length
  • 203LBS. Weight
  • 9 3/8" Hands

Overview

One of the top prospects to emerge from Maine in years, McMillian is a strong and physical safety who at times can look stiff covering the pass. His value lies in his ability to support the run and be a sure tackler, and he has sixth-round value based on this.

Analysis

Strengths

McMillian brings a physical presence to the back end of the defense, reacts to passes well and can force his body hard in one direction to make a play toward the ball, much like he does in his reactions to the run. He is quick to diagnose run and pass, and reacts to the run much better coming toward the line of scrimmage than he does moving away. McMillian is NFL-ready in supporting the run.

Weaknesses

McMillian can struggle in some of his transitional movements when playing the pass. He looks to support the run first and this can get him to bite at times.
