The NFL has seen plenty of great cornerbacks make the transition from the college level over the last couple of years, but with the 2013 NFL Draft quickly approaching–the argument can be made that Alabama‘s Dee Milliner could end up being in a class of his own if he can manage to live up to the potential.
There was a reason why Milliner managed to start 11 games as a true freshman with the Crimson Tide and when taking a look at how well Alabama’s defense has played over the last couple of years–Milliner seems ready to make the transition to the NFL level. There are plenty of talented cornerbacks from this year’s draft class, but Milliner may end up being the best when it’s all said and done.
Milliner has been praised for his ability to tackle and his awareness on the football field–which is why he’s been quite popular among the NFL scouts. Milliner is the type of player that could easily work his way into the starting role by Week 1 and when looking back at his career at Alabama, there are plenty of other talented cornerbacks he was lucky enough to play with to help him get to where he is today.
The future appears to be a bright one for Milliner when it comes to the NFL and it will be interesting to see if he has what it takes to live up to his potential during the 2013 season.
