ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released his final mock draft today, and with the sixth pick he gives the Browns CB Dee Milliner-
“The Browns are really desperate for another corner to play opposite Joe Haden. If they get Milliner, that’s a solid No. 2 option, also allowing them to move Buster Skrine inside to cover the slot, a position where he’s far better. The need for a pass-rusher could certainly have them engaging in some debate here, but Milliner provides assurances. There’s been talk that the Browns could move in either direction on the board, so plenty to wait for on that front as well. And yes, I do believe a QB such as Geno Smith could be in play here.”
Kiper has mocked Milliner, Bjoern Werner, Chance Warmack and Geno Smith all to the Browns in various versions of his mock draft. The top spots on both Kiper and Todd McShay’s board changed today from Luke Joeckel to Eric Fisher.
With rumors flying that the Raiders, Jaguars and Eagles could all be interested in trading out of the top 4 picks, this draft is wide open.
