NFL Mock Draft 2013: Eagles projected to take Dee Milliner

The Eagles could go a few different ways in the NFL Draft, but Philadelphia is projected to take Dee Milliner in one of the latest mock drafts.

Dee Milliner is one of best prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft, and the former Alabama cornerback could end up in Philadelphia, according to one of the latest mock drafts.

The Eagles are projected to select Milliner with the No. 4 pick in the latest mock draft from Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. The 6'0 Milliner left Alabama following his junior season. He is ranked by most draft analysts as the top cornerback available, and one of the top defenders. He's also widely considered to be a top-10 talent and, as Banks wrote, he's one of a few players the Eagles may consider.

Banks also mentions quarterback Geno Smith and left tackle Eric Fisher as other possibilities for the Eagles. Fisher is the Eagles' pick in the latest mock draft from SB Nation's Dan Kadar. The Eagles had issues along the offensive line last season, making Fisher a logical selection. Todd Herremans and Jason Peters are scheduled to return next year, but both are coming off injury.

With Fisher, Milliner or even Smith, the Eagles would come away with one of the best prospects in the draft and a potential Week 1 starter.
