2013 NFL Draft: Dee Milliner's Injuries Could Be Concerning

USA TODAY Sports

Dee Milliner is rated by many to be the best CB in the draft, however recent reports with more information on his injuries may send him sliding a bit.

Yesterday there were some reports that surfaced with more information regarding Alabama CB Dee Milliner's injury concerns. Given that the Cleveland Browns may be targeting him with the 6th overall pick, this may be troubling to some.

Obviously that does not sound good. Over at NFL.com Chris Wesseling wrote a piece on Milliner's injury concerns. You can read the entire article here. He states there are some teams (including the Browns), who reportedly still have Milliner as the #1 CB on their board. I'm no doctor, so I can't say with any inclination how those injuries will effect his play. But, when it's all said and done, many analysts think there's not that much disparity between the top corners in this draft, so this worrying may all be for naught. Mike Mayock is quoted in the article as stating there's no corner worthy of a top-10 pick in this draft. I tend to agree with that notion.

Mary Kay Cabot reports that the recent surge in stories around Milliner's injuries is just a smear campaign, and that he should be fine in time for training camp.

Make of the stories what you will, but it's worth at least noting that there may be some concerns. With the sixth overall pick the Browns have a lot at stake. Do they take a guy once considered by many to be the clear cut best corner in the draft, but now may be sliding? Take the best pass rusher? Or do they trade back and go another route? There's plenty of options for the Browns, so what say you DBN faithful, should the Cleveland Browns not worry about Milliner and take him anyway?
