NFL Mock Draft 2013: Dee Milliner drops to Buccaneers

Kevin C. Cox

Another day, another mock draft.

Dan Kadar over at Mocking the Draft updated his mock draft after yesterday's action. After giving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Johnthan Banks in his first mock draft, he has now given them Dee Milliner. The latter is generally seen as the better cornerback prospect, but it remains to be seen whether he'll fall to the Bucs. Here's what Dan had to say about the selection:

The Buccaneers' secondary was embarrassing this season. Dee Milliner slides a bit in this mock, and Tampa Bay can't complain. Milliner may not have shutdown potential in the NFL, but he's a solid corner who plays the game with a physical edge.

Obviously the Buccaneers could use any and all cornerback they can get, although fans will undoubtedly be disappointed to hear Milliner may not be a shutdown corner. But he's physical and solid in run support, and that's what the Bucs will be looking for. In fact, it's long been speculated that the Bucs passed on Morris Claiborne last year because of suspect tackling and a lack of physicality in the run game.

For those who haven't seen Milliner yet, you should check him out in tonight's BCS Championship between Alabama and Notre Dame.
