2013 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles take Dee Milliner

Kevin C. Cox

The Philadelphia Eagles have many holes but could certainly use some help in the secondary.

With the 2012 NFL regular season now in the books, the Philadelphia Eagles know that their disappointing season landed them the No. 4 overall pick in April's draft.

According to drafttek.com, that means the opportunity to select the top-rated cornerback in the draft, Dee Milliner, of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Milliner has good enough size at 6'1'' and just under 200 pounds (196) to play up on the line in an effort to disrupt receivers' timing.

It will certainly be a tough call for whomever comes in and is coaching the Eagles by the time draft day rolls around, considering all the issues this team has. While talent is certainly there, Philadelphia must address a bevy of key spots, including both lines and the secondary.

Another upside to Milliner is he is coming out of Alabama, where he has already been coached in an NFL style defense under Nick Saban, who prepares players for the next level better than any other college coach.
