NFL Mock Draft 2013: Browns stick with Dee Milliner in latest mock

USA TODAY Sports

Not much has changed for the Browns in SB Nation's latest mock draft. They're still projected to take Dee Milliner with the sixth pick.

The Cleveland Browns have largely been quiet on the draft speculation front, despite holding the sixth overall pick. They quietly built one of the better front sevens in the NFL, but could still use some secondary help, and there's no obvious fit on offense at the No. 6 spot.

Thus, people continue to project them to take the best cornerback available. SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn released a three-round mock draft on Monday, and he still has the Browns selecting Alabama CB Dee Milliner in the first round:

During Michael Lombardi's tenure in Oakland, the team drafted defensive backs early and often. Given the amount of money Cleveland sank into the pass rush in free agency, the Browns should be able to address the cornerback spot on draft day. Dee Milliner and Joe Haden would form quite the tandem.

Cleveland already used up their second rounder in the Josh Gordon supplemental draft last year, and there are no trades in this mock, so on we go to the third round, where Fairburn mocks Oregon State WR Markus Wheaton to the Browns at No. 68:

The Browns need to surround Brandon Weeden with weapons if he's going to be successful. Markus Wheaton provides a nice deep threat across from Josh Gordon.
