10 Miami Dolphins players that will determine the teams future
By Brian Miller
Raekwon McMillan – LB – 23 years old
Missing his rookie season hurt and while he was able to learn the film study process and watch other make errors on the field and learn from them, the fact is not playing took away an important component of changing from the college ranks to the NFL. The acclimation to the speed of the NFL.
McMillan has made mistakes this year and there are no questions about that. He has been slow to read the run, filled in the wrong gaps, and allowed himself to be taken out of the play. In coverage he has struggled at times as well.
The good news is that he has the talent to play at this level and he works hard to correct what he does wrong. This is in essence his rookie season and coping with both his first time on the field and the recovery from his 2017 injury has contributed to the inconsistency but McMillan is starting to show more consistency on the field.
Moving forward from this season McMillan should settle in well at linebacker and we should see that progress in 2019 when he can put the distractions of 2017 out of his head for good. He is a strong player that has the talent and ability to take a giant step in the near future.
