McMillan is a very impressive and smart route runner, possibly one of the best and least talked about in this class. Constantly manipulating defenders with multiple techniques to keep the defense on their toes, really like his jab step to get DB’s turned the other way. Another way he wins in his routes is the way he is able to accelerate and quickly decelerate changing the tempo on the defense.  Can be used in a variety of different ways sort of like a switch blade, you will see McMillan constantly thrown in motion or put in the backfield to create mismatches.  While not the most functionally strong player, McMillan is a willing and frequently used in the run blocking game out of the slot, does well in those opportunities.


Slim frame at 197 lbs that tends to struggle with more physical defenders, struggled in contested catch situations and seemed to be knocked off balance in his routes. Extremely high slot usage for the past two years, in 2022 he was lined up in the slot 92.5% and in 2023 89.2%. While used a decent amount in the screen game, I do not see a WR that is super effective in YAC situations due to lack of contact balance and true creativity as a ball carrier. Faced a lot of off coverages.


Jalen McMillan may not have been the most productive Washington WR but he is a very good football player. It remains to be seen if he could be a stand alone WR on an offense or would he be better suited as a second or third option on a team, which in my opinion, is the best-case scenario for McMillan. Currently I see McMillan as a 3rd or 4th round selection in the NFL draft and would do best on a slot needy team. A very intriguing and possible landing spot for him would be Kanas City alongside Rashee Rice, he would easily step into that role and would be the Chiefs best route runner.
