2013 NFL Mock Draft: Browns select Dee Milliner in latest mock

SB Nation's latest mock draft has the Browns taking CB Dee Milliner out of Alabama.

USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns have spent big money in free agency on their defense, bringing in Paul Kruger and Desmond Bryant to help transition to Roy Horton's 3-4 scheme. They still have work to do, but are in a great position to add reinforcements in the draft.

SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn released his latest mock draft on Monday. In it, he projects the Browns to select Alabama CB Dee Milliner with the sixth overall pick:

The Browns went out and spent big money on Paul Kruger to get after the passer from the outside linebacker spot. They could still add a young player at that position, but addressing the cornerback position would make more sense. Dee Milliner also represents solid value at this spot.

Milliner is being mocked all over the top five in the draft, with some people thinking he could go as high as No. 1 to the Chiefs, which would be unprecedented for a defensive back. His stock is high enough that grabbing him at the No. 6 spot would very much be considered a "steal."
