TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Yet another mock draft rates Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner as a first-round draft choice.
The National Football Post’s latest draft projection has Milliner going fifth in the opening round to the Detroit Lions. (Fans of former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy might not like who the Post predicts his New York Jets will pick — West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith.) ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper has Milliner 11th on his Big Board.
However, Milliner said he hasn’t decided if he will head to the NFL after this season.
“I haven’t taken time out to think about it yet, but after the game, I’m going to sit down with my family and Coach Saban and make the best choice for my future,” he said today after practice.
