Evaluation notes

Coy McMillon is a prototype "jumbo athlete" prospect who could play a number of positions on either side of the ball. His high school experience largely came at tight end and defensive line -- both end and tackle. In college, McMillon's big frame (6-4, 260) may be best served on the defensive side of the ball. He's strong at the point of attack and disengages well to consistently be a factor against the run.

McMillon flashes pass-rushing instincts that should make him a threat in part of his game as he continues to develop technique. He can improve his lateral mobility and body control, but overall McMillon is athletic for a player of his size and mass. He's a serious competitor who can play at the Power Five conference level. - Gabe Brooks
