The Kansas City Chiefs were reportedly narrowing down their choices to a select few as the 2013 NFL Draft creeps closer and closer. It appears, however, that the team is still doing its homework on the top prospects available with Ian Rapoport's word that cornerback Dee Milliner will visit the team on Tuesday.
To this point, the Chiefs were reportedly down to just a few players that included offensive linemen like Eric Fisher and Luke Joeckel and defensive pass rusher Dion Jordan. At this stage of the offseason, it's impossible to tell what is a smokescreen and what is due diligence. However it can't hurt the Chiefs to bring in Milliner for a look.
It should be noted that the Chiefs have already remade much of the secondary this offseason. Brandon Flowers and Eric Berry are the two staples with safe starting positions, but the rest is up for grabs after the team added cornerbacks Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson and safety Husain Abdullah. Such moves in free agency would seem to preclude the team from grabbing Milliner, but if Andy Reid and John Dorsey like what they see then anything is possible.
The Alabama product is widely regarded as the best cornerback available in the draft, and in the pass happy NFL, a team can never have enough talent in the secondary. Dan Kadar writes, "In our final cornerback rankings for the 2013 NFL Draft, Alabama's Dee Milliner remains on the top. He's the most complete corner in the draft and could be a top 10 pick."
SB Nation's Matthew Fairburn has Milliner going sixth overall to the Cleveland Browns in his most recent mock.
