NFL Combine 2013 Results: Dee Milliner Solidifies Top Ten Status With 4.37 40-Yard Dash

There was little doubt that former Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback Dee Milliner was the best defensive back prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class, and the consensus All-American solidified his spot as the cream of the cop during on-field drills at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday.

Milliner ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash among the defensive backs and erased any concerns that scouts had about his long speed.

The official time for Milliner was 4.37 seconds.

At 6-foot, 201-pounds, Milliner has cemented a spot in the top ten of April’s draft.

To add on to his impressive numbers, Milliner registered a 36-inch vertical jump, 122-inch broad jump, 6.95 second three-cone drill and a 4.32 second 20-yard shuttle. There should be no concerns about his athleticism now.

While the times for Milliner were impressive, he seemed to struggle catching the ball during position drills, but that should not hurt his draft stock.

After all, Milliner is dealing with a torn labrum that he will have surgery to repair following the combine.

Where do you think Milliner should go in the 2013 NFL Draft? Seeing him selected in the top five would not be a surprise, but you should consider the top ten a virtual guarantee.

    I really didn’t need a bunch of artificial NFL scout created drills to know that Millner will be a star in the NFL. I just hope the Packers can trade up to get him,
