NFL Draft 2013: Dee Milliner aspires to play for Cleveland Browns

Streeter Lecka

Dee Milliner wouldn't mind playing on the banks of Lake Erie next fall.

Going into the 2013 NFL Draft, Alabama Crimson Tide corner Dee Milliner is making it no secret he would love to play for the Cleveland Browns.

The top-rated corner in the draft, Milliner expressed his thoughts on a Cleveland radio show Tuesday, saying that one of his favorite players to study is Browns cornerback Joe Haden. Milliner also said should he be wearing orange and brown come September, the Browns will be a postseason threat, according to

The real question is, would Cleveland actually take Milliner at the No. 6 spot?

It's hard to see a scenario where this happens. The Browns definitely need a corner to put opposite of Haden, but the team also needs a pass-rusher, which are plentiful at the top of this draft in Dion Jordan, Barkevious Mingo and others.

Of course, Cleveland needs an offensive weapon more than anything, but none appear to be worth taking in the top 10 picks outside of a quarterback, which the team drafted last year in Brandon Weeden.
