WR Jalen McMillan, TB (1 Viewer)

Feel like this kid could have gone a lot higher in the draft if he hadn’t sprained his MCL in week 3. Already had over 300 yards and 3 TDs in those 3 weeks.

More receptions and TDs than Odunze in 2022 and right there in yards.

Smooth route runner and ideal slot type player in the NFL. May have to wait a year because Godwin is expected to play the slot this year, but his contract is up after 2024.
 
I watched a ton of Pac12 ball and I honestly don't recall much. Need to do some more homework.

#Bucs WR coach Bryan McClendon says that he likes Jalen McMillan’s flexibility to play on the outside and in the slot. He feels fortunate that he fell to Tampa Bay in the third round.

#Bucs OC Liam Coen says that Jalen McMillan is a pure route-runner and has a competitive nature which allowed him to contribute with the Huskies and carries that over to Tampa Bay.

Bucs WRs Coach Bryan McClendon says what he likes most about rookie WR Jalen McMillan is his positional flexibility. Says McMillan can play the X, Z and F. McClendon thinks McMillan wouldn’t have lasted to the third round of the draft if he hadn’t gotten nicked up last year.
 
If tight end Cade Otton was the offensive player of the day on Tuesday, it’s pretty safe to say that rookie wide receiver Jalen McMillan was the offense’s star during Wednesday’s practice.

He and Baker Mayfield have already begun to develop a strong connection, as evidenced by the first play of the Bucs’ 11-on-11 period. McMillan, Tampa Bay’s third-round pick this year, got open near the left sideline and Mayfield threaded a perfect throw to him for a nice chunk of yardage.

McMillan went on to make three or four more catches throughout the rest of practice, and he drew praise from Mayfield when the quarterback spoke with the media after practice.

“He’s really friendly at the top of his routes, attacks the ball, catches with his hands. Just explosive, a smooth route runner,” Mayfield said of McMillan. “So just now, having him put it all together in the offense, get all these alerts, these cans and playing fast – I think for him, really the next step is mastering the offense so he can use that physical talent that he has.”

Rookie receiver Jalen McMillan, who caught a red zone touchdown from Baker Mayfield yesterday, caught three passes on three targets today from Mayfield. One of the plays he along the right sideline and he kept running so Antoine Winfield kept running with him. Love to see it.

I have him ranked with Ladd, he’s under the radar for sure.

“McMillan may even have a chance to overtake Palmer for the WR3 role, though Palmer is having a good offseason himself. In either case, the rookie looks like he’ll help the Bucs from day one, whether he’s WR3 or WR4.

As many plays as McMillan made over his first collection of practices as an NFL receiver, it was his intelligence that stood out to his head coach the most.”

I was bummed to see him land with Tampa. I had some hopes for Palmer and I think it’s a crowded situation now with 4 quality WRs. NFL-wise it’s a really nice group that all complement each other well.
