Aside from the obvious Wu-Tang Clan appeal, Raekwon McMillan is an experienced middle linebacker who could be the perfect addition to the New York Giants. He’s a competitive tackler who has the pedigree to become a leader on defense.
McMillan has areas in which he must improve, but he takes coaching well and has an uncanny ability to show up where he needs to be.
McMillan has the size and viciousness to be a physically overwhelming force against the run. He’s a tackling machine who covers ground, bursts through holes in the offensive line, and destroys running backs in the backfield.
Coupled with the speed and natural athleticism to improve in coverage, McMillan’s development should continue once he reaches the NFL.
McMillan may not yet be consistent in coverage, but he’s made progress since 2015. His work ethic appears to be strong, just as his physical gifts are intriguing and his ability to disrupt the run has been proven as a strength.
In a division with promising young offensive players such as Ezekiel Elliott, Robert Kelley, Dak Prescott, and Carson Wentz, McMillan’s athleticism could be a game changer.
