2013 NFL Draft: Dee Milliner enters; Will Buccaneers get the Alabama cornerback?

Streeter Lecka

Alabama junior Dee Milliner has decided to enter the 2013 NFL Draft, which should make the Tampa Bay Buccaneers happy. The Bucs have a massive need at cornerback and Dee Milliner is generally seen as the top cornerback in this year's draft. It remains to be seen whether the Junior will fall to the Bucs with the 13th overall pick, but no cornerback really compares with Dee Milliner.

Mocking the Draft has Milliner as the best overall cornerback in this year's draft, and he is generally the first cornerback off the board in mock drafts. The Bucs could easily target him, as they selected another Alabama defensive back last season in Mark Barron.

If Milliner is off the board at number 13, the Bucs could go after different cornerbacks: Johnthan Banks, Xavier Rhodes and Will Davis are possible targets. But if those players are not deemed to be the best players on the board at the time, don't be surprised to see the Bucs look at another position of need: safety, pass rusher and defensive tackle could all be addressed in the first round.
