McMillan complied 105 tackles, one pass defended, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 2018.
After losing his entire rookies season to a torn ACL, McMillan came on as a leader in the Dolphins' defense in 2018. The middle linebacker position was one of Miami's most notable weaknesses heading into the season, but the former 2017 second-round pick's strong play has put any worries at ease. Following up an inconsistent start to the year, McMillan greatly improved during the second half of the season and averaged 7.85 tackles per game from Week 10 to Week 17. McMillan racked up the second most tackles of any Dolphins player in 2018, trailing only Kiko Alonso, and will remain an integral part of the team's plans for the future.
McMillan posted 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars.
In what has been a disappointing season for the Dolphins overall, McMillan's development can be seen as a rare point of optimism. The second-year pro, who missed his entire rookie season due to a torn ACL, has come on as a leader in Miami's defense down the stretch. McMillan will be a solid IDP play Week 17 against the Bills.
McMillan recorded nine tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Patriots.
McMillan equaled a season high in tackles during Sunday's win against New England. The second-year pro has posted at least seven tackles in his last four games, and he will be a solid IDP play against the Vikings in Week 15.
McMillan made nine tackles (seven solo) in Thursday's 42-23 loss to the Texans.
McMillan has had at least six tackles in each of the last five games now, adding a forced fumble in that span as well. The 2017 second-round pick is performing well in his first NFL action -- 47 tackles in eight games -- after missing his entire rookie campaign with a torn ACL.
McMillan tied with T.J. McDonald as the team's leader in tackles. After missing his entire rookie season to an ACL tear, the second-year pro has cemented himself as a starter in Miami's 4-3 defense and logged at least six total tackles in his previous four games. As McMillan continues to acclimate to the speed of the NFL, his IDP arrow is trending up.
