NFL Draft 2013: Dee Milliner insists he'll be 'perfectly fine'

Wesley Hitt

Dee Milliner isn't concerned about his recent injuries.

Dee Milliner is still widely regarded as the top cornerback in the 2013 NFL Draft class -- despite recently undergoing shoulder surgery. The former Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback isn't worried about his shoulder, and insists that he will be "perfectly fine for training camp," according to The Star-Ledger.

Milliner said that he'll start "rehabbing hard" after the draft.

In SB Nation's latest mock draft, Milliner is projected to be taken No. 6 overall by the Cleveland Browns. It's unlikely that Milliner will fall out of the top half of the draft, and it seems probable that Milliner will end up as a top-10 pick on Thursday night.

At 6-foot, Milliner has the necessary size to be an impact cornerback in the NFL. He also possesses excellent closing speed and has a high football acumen. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Milliner as the No. 4 prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft, while SB Nation's Dan Kadar slotted Milliner as the No. 6 prospect in this year's draft class.

Reports over the last week surfaced that Milliner's draft stock could fall because his recent injuries. However, 22 teams throughout the league still grade Milliner as the draft's top cornerback, despite health concerns.
