Pros:
Good shooter, especially from deep
Decent scorer off the dribble
Decent playmaker
Adequate rebounder for his size
Decent defender that can get steals
Solid athlete

Cons:
Inconsistent shooter
Can be too scoring focused on offense
May struggle to guard taller players
May not be a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two

Summary:
Miles McBride is an agile, skilled sharpshooting combo guard that can make shots from all over the floor.  He is having a very good sophomore season, and he is a prolific scorer that can put up points in a hurry, and he scored 12 of his 21 points in the last 4 minutes of his team’s January 4th win over Oklahoma State. 

On the other hand, he can be a bit streaky with his jump shot and he may need to show teams that he can effectively run the point, but he is a very good shooter whose ability to score the basketball could make him a solid pick in the late first to the second round range of the 2021 draft.
