Raekwon McMillan stood out as a player and a leader on an Ohio State defense that was stacked with NFL talent. Now hes moving to the pros after being drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the 54th overall pick.
Game Womens Sean Spence Jersey McMillan was one of few true freshmen who earned considerable playing time under head coach Urban Meyer during the Buckeyes 2014 national championship run. His sophomore season was a breakout year, with a whopping 119 tackles, plus 1.5 sacks.
In his final season at Ohio State, McMillan led the team in tackles with 102, but thats just a partial representation of what he meant to the Buckeyes defense. He was a captain and served as the quarterback of the defense, relaying play calls and assignments to his teammates on the field. That leadership could serve Miami well.
Samuels talent is undeniable, but hes undersized. That may present some challenges against press coverage. As a ball carrier, its part of the reason Samuel was featured so often on sweeps with the Buckeyes. Hes much more of a threat once he gets into space.
Hes not the most natural receiver and needs to improve his technique. Samuel had a tendency to catch the ball against his body in college as opposed to looking it into his hands.

One of the biggest adjustments for running backs in the transition from college to the NFL is often becoming a proficient blocker. Samuel wasnt called upon to block at Ohio State very much, so hell likely have some ground to make up there.
