Dee Milliner vs. Morris Claiborne
Was Claiborne a better prospect last year than Milliner is this year?
It's an interesting question. And the more appropriate time to answer it might actually be after the combine so we can see what Milliner's long speed really is.
Here's what I think:
- Better ball skills
- Better playmaker with the ball in his hands
- Slightly better tackler
- Better hips and feet/more fluid
- Better m2m
- Better in zone
- More instinctive
Assuming Milliner runs under a 4.5 (I have a small concern there), he's my pick. Probably the best pure cover CB I've scouted (I remember loving Revis but did not ever label him as the best cover CB I've ever scouted probably because no one threw on him. I had him 13th overall that year though).
