Jets selected Alabama CB Dee Milliner with the No. 9 overall pick.
Milliner (6-0, 201) was a unanimous first-team All American in 2012 after serving as the Crimson Tide's 2011 nickel back behind DeQuan Menzie and Dre Kirkpatrick. Milliner finished his career with six interceptions across 30 starts. He ran 4.37 at the Combine with a 10-foot-2 broad jump and 36-inch vertical. Milliner lacks elite ball skills and doesn't necessarily project as a flashy or shutdown NFL corner, but is thickly built and versatile with plus skills for both zone and bump-and-run coverage. Milliner will be asked to fill Darrelle Revis' giant shoes opposite Antonio Cromartie. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 09:20:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Alabama CB Dee Milliner has had a total of five surgeries in college.

"Milliner's surgeries include a right knee scope, sports hernia, right tibia stress fracture and both shoulders. His most recent shoulder surgery, performed in March, will sideline him during the organized team activities of whichever team drafts him. Milliner is not expected to be ready until training camp at the earliest," Schefter writes. Milliner has said he hasn't been able to rehab normally because of his constant team visits.

Multiple reports Monday discussed questions surrounding Alabama CB Dee Milliner's medical reports.

The list starts with Milliner's recent shoulder surgery and continued into revealing a rod in his tibia, a past knee scope, and hernia surgery. ESPN's Chris Mortensen and NFL Network's Charley Casserly both disclosed the same information. This might be news to those of us on the outside, but teams have known this history since medical checks at the Combine, and likely even before that. Meaning, these injuries will not all of a sudden impact Milliner's grade, however, they have already been considered during the process.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King hears teams have injury concerns about Alabama CB Dee Milliner's shoulder.

The Philadelphia Inquirer went a step further, interviewing Milliner about the possibility of missing part of offseason camp. "We haven't been able to do the rehab like I want to because I've been going to different teams," Milliner said. "But once the draft is over, I'll be able to start to rehab it and try to get back on track."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler ranks Alabama CB Dee Milliner as the No. 4 prospect in the 2013 class.

This obviously makes Milliner the top corner on Brugler's board. "Although he doesn't have elite speed, Milliner makes up for his lack of quick-twitch athleticism with smooth hips, natural instincts and very good read/react skills." The next best corner is Xavier Rhodes, who ranks No. 13.

The Browns are "looking hard" at Alabama CB Dee Milliner at pick No. 6, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

La Canfora also notes the Dolphins are very high on Milliner. There's a chance the Browns could trade out of the sixth pick and still land Milliner, like at pick No. 11, but corners are always in heavy demand. The depth of this year's class at the position could cause some teams to wait, however.

Draft insider Tony Pauline cited sources who say Alabama CB Dee Milliner is the Browns' number one priority.

Pauline went on to tweet that Barkevious Mingo is the team's backup plan. We expect the team to trade out of the sixth selection and try to regain their second-round selection. There is a chance Milliner makes it out of the top 10, but if not a third option could be Xavier Rhodes or Ezekiel Ansah.

Alabama CB Dee Milliner is visiting the Titans and will travel to Kansas City on Tuesday.

That means teams that hold the No. 1 and No. 10 overall picks at least have Milliner on their radar. We expect the Alabama product to be selected closer to the 10th pick than at the top of the draft, and he might be one name who is selected later than initially expected.

After speaking with multiple NFL teams, the three positions with clarity at the top are CB, S, and TE, per NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah.

Dee Milliner is the top corner, Kenny Vaccaro is the top safety, and Tyler Eifert is the top tight end. We takes this to mean every other position has some contention at No. 1, and we wouldn't be surprised if that included these three positions. Some notable exceptions are Luke Joeckel at left tackle and Chance Warmack at guard.

Alabama CB Dee Milliner will visit the New York Jets on April 12, according to Tony Pauline.

Pauline reports that Milliner will visit the Jets a day after UConn cornerback Dwayne Gratz did. It's possible that the Jets are exhausting all their options in the draft in case star cornerback Darrelle Revis is traded. Milliner is a very good player but may not be available at their No. 9 overall selection. He is physical, can run well and match-up in the slot or perimeter.

Alabama CB Dee Milliner is visiting the Colts on Wednesday.

It is an interesting visit, since the Colts don't pick until No. 24. The team has Vontae Davis, Darius Butler, and Greg Toler, but if Milliner last beyond pick No. 10, a variety of teams could trade up for his services. Keep in mind the depth at the position, and Milliner does not specialize in a specific trait like Xavier Rhodes.

The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports Alabama CB Dee Milliner is feeling good after his surgery.

Birkett tweeted that Milliner is out of his shoulder sling following surgery of a torn labrum. There were questions over Milliner's health but all appears to be fine now. He's still projected as an early first round selection and largely considered the No. 1 cornerback.

Alabama CB Dee Milliner visited the Lions on Monday.

Milliner is a possibility for the Lions at No. 5 and becomes an even likelier option if the team trades down. Beat writer Anwar Richardson noted that the team has attempted to trade up for corners in previous drafts (Patrick Robinson and Stephon Gilmore), so selecting a corner early, despite how deep the position is, is definitely a possibility.

Alabama CB Dee Milliner is scheduled to visit 10 of the top 13 teams that make up the early part of the first-round.

Milliner visited the Jaguars on Wednesday, along with the Dolphins and Bucs. We expect Milliner to be selected within the top 13 picks, with the Lions, Browns, and Dolphins being the likeliest suitors. By all accounts, Milliner is considered the top corner in this class.

Former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah believes the Browns "probably" have three options at pick No. 6.

The first, per Jeremiah, is to take Bama corner Dee Milliner, which would fill a "huge need." The next option is to trade down and target Xavier Rhodes, another cornerback. The third is to take Geno Smith. We think the team is fairly content on using Brandon Weeden in Chud's vertical offense this season, and targeting a quarterback in 2014.
