NFL Draft 2013: Detroit Lions Host Dee Milliner


The Detroit Lions have three major areas of need that they could address with their top pick in the 2013 NFL Draft — offensive tackle, defensive back and defensive end. Detroit currently sits at the No. 5 in the draft order and a number of top prospects that fill their needs will be on the board when the Lions are on the clock.

With a lot of options ahead of them, the Lions are bringing in prospects for their pre-draft visits and doing their due diligence to see which player will help the team the most.

Per NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline:

Milliner is the top defensive back prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class and has been mocked to the Lions on numerous occasions. He would be a great addition to the Lions defensive backfield and give them a potential shut down corner.

Ultimately, I would expect the Lions draft choice to come down to three players — Milliner, Central Michigan OT Eric Fisher and BYU DE Ezekiel Ansah.
