Jan 7, 2013; Miami, FL, USA; Alabama Crimson Tide defensive back Dee Milliner (28) breaks up a pass intended for Notre Dame Fighting Irish wide receiver DaVaris Daniels (10) during the second half of the 2013 BCS Championship game at Sun Life Stadium. The pass was intercepted by Alabama defensive back Ha

 

NFL mock draft season is now in full-swing, and Josh Norris of Rotoworld.com has released his fully updated mock, and if his projections hold true, the AFC North will only to continue to solidify itself as one of the toughest divisions in all of football.

At #6, he has the Cleveland Browns adding the top cornerback prospect in Dee Milner:

6. Browns – CB Dee Milliner, Alabama
The Browns certainly filled a variety of needs in their front seven via free agency, therefore a corner or additional pass rusher is possible. Another very possible option is to trade down, but it is too early to mock trades.

 

The thought of having Milliner paired up with All-Pro Joe Haden, and potentially even Brent Grimes is a very scary though for anyone hoping to pass against the Browns defense.

 

As far as the Pittsburgh Steelers, he gave them arguably the most explosive offensive player in the draft in Cordarrelle Patterson,

17. Steelers – WR Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
A surprise, yes, but outside of a replacement at multiple linebacker positions, the Steelers could roll the dice on an explosive playmaker. Patterson needs help learning and refining the route tree, but he consistently gets open without it.

Replacing Mike Wallace with Patterson could easily eventually end up being an upgrade.

    i doubt the bengals would pick RB Lacy at #21..theres several excellent RB’s they can pick in the 2nd or 3rd rd’s….Franklin from UCLA is just one example…
