I’m more versatile as a player and I’m not just a first- and second-down linebacker. I can actually go out there on third downs and make plays as well.” "After McMillan spent his rookie season on injured reserve, the Dolphins’ second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft finished second on the team in tackles last year with 105, behind only veteran linebacker Kiko Alonso." What was clear to everyone, his former coaches and himself included, is that McMillan got significantly better as the season progressed." “The knowledge I gained throughout the season last year, I started off kind of slow, but as the season progressed, I kind of got a feel for how the game speed was going and how intelligent the players were, where you were going to try to attack us as a defense and as a team and what we can do throughout the week to enhance our knowledge and keep it from happening.” “Coach Flo, he came in and gave us this speech, he came in and just implemented the things that he would tolerate and things that he wouldn’t tolerate as a head coach,” McMillan said. “He wasn’t real pushy, real shovy with it, just told me his expectations for this team and his staff and how he’s going to coach things and how everything is going to go"
