2013 NFL mock draft: Bucs select Dee Milliner

Wesley Hitt

The Buccaneers are desperate for some help at corner and would get it should Dee Milliner fall to them.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a potent offense but need some playmakers to fortify their defense. Last year, the club used its first round pick on Mark Barron, a safety from Alabama, who looks to be the real deal.

According to SB Nation's latest mock draft authored by Matthew Fairburn, Tampa Bay will look to the Alabama Crimson Tide's secondary once again, this time selecting cornerback Dee Milliner with the No. 13 overall pick.

Milliner is a big corner who can play a physical style, something that head coach Greg Schiano likes to employ when he has the necessary talent.

Coming from Nick Saban's complex defense, Milliner will have a short learning curve compared to many rookies, only helping his draft stock. Milliner also comes from an extremely successful program, another notch in his belt.

If he falls to the Bucs, they will waste no time scooping him up.
