WR Jalen McMillan
Odunze’s partner in crime at the wide receiver position has immense potential on Sundays. Jalen McMillan is less physically-imposing but much more refined in several areas. McMillan’s best trait is route running from the slot, as the shifty pass catcher regularly creates space when given a runway off the snap.
His hands are reliable, and the way McMillan tucks the ball allows him to create yardage after the catch. He is quick, but the best word to describe the Washington wideout is ‘smooth’. McMillan glides up and down the field and has no trouble leaving defenders in his dust.
On the flip side, McMillan’s frame is slender, and it causes issues when he lines up on the boundary. Bigger, stronger cornerbacks are capable of knocking him off his route and affecting timing between McMillan and his quarterback. He could do better at coming back to the play as it breaks down, as he lacks route creativity the further he gets downfield.
All in all, the junior pass catcher possesses a high upside from the slot. In recent years, this spot has become a focal point of NFL offenses. McMillan has the traits, work ethic, and track record to serve as a primary target in an NFL offense one day. He is a potential riser in the 2024 NFL Draft.
