Jalen McMillan To Be Big Part of Buccaneers Offense
3 days ago

Tampa Bay rookie wide receiver Jalen McMillan is showing early signs of production.

Jalen McMillan was supposed to have a huge season at the University of Washington in 2023, alongside top 10 pick Rome Odunze. A leg injury managed to snuff out the McMillan hype and allow teammate Ja’Lyn Polk time to shine, but it also allowed the Buccaneers to snag a good WR at good value. Bucs head coach Todd Bowles is duly impressed.

 

“He’s a good route runner, he’s a competitor, he’s very intelligent – that impressed me the most. I can’t wait to see him in pads,” Bowles said. McMillan made a ton of plays during the offseason sessions, began to develop good rapport with QB Baker Mayfield, and is in position to begin the season as the WR3 behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. One of McMillan’s better assets in college was his versatility. He was effective both outside and in the slot. That type of route tree only helps when learning a new system.

 

McMillan is currently being drafted in the 16th round on Underdog and should easily outplay that draft position. He is a value target in Dynasty rookie drafts and startups.

Jalen McMillan Drafted 92nd Overall by the Buccaneers
1 month ago

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have drafted University of Washington Wide Receiver, Jalen McMillan, with the 92nd pick in the 2024 NFL draft.

Even in a crowded Wide Receiver room at Washington that featured Ja’Lynn Polk and Rome Odunze, McMillan was still able to stand out and command targets when healthy. Now, he’ll head to Tampa Bay and have a chance to be an immediate contributor.

 

This news isn’t great for Trey Palmer owners. You can expect McMillan to slot in ahead of Palmer, burying him behind the top 3 wide receivers.

 

For McMillan, this landing spot is good, but not great. Star Wide Receiver, Mike Evans, signed an extension this offseason and shows no signs of slowing down as Baker Mayfield’s top target. Chris Godwin is no slouch either, but you can’t expect both of them to stick around forever. Overall, this upgrades the weapons for Mayfield and provides McMillan an opportunity to ease into an increased role in future years.

Jalen McMillan participles in NFL Combine
3 months ago

Jalen McMillan, despite not being considered an “Elite Prospect” is still putting up solid NFL Combine numbers.

The former Washington Huskie wide receiver Jalen McMillan showcased his skills at the NFL Combine, with one of McMillan’s biggest knocks coming into the draft being his slim frame bringing in questions if McMillan could survive at the NFL level. However, with that being said McMillan’s 40-time was respectable at (4.47)  and his 37″ vertical jump and a 10’7″ broad jump further emphasized his explosive athleticism.

 

Though he doesn’t rate as highly as his teammates Odunze and Polk, At this time the former Washington Huskie projects to be a day 3 pick but has the potential to sneak into the back of the 2nd round.
