2013 NFL Draft: New York Jets Select Alabama Cornerback Dee Milliner

With the number nine pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the New York Jets have selected Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner. The pick is a no-brainer for a Jets team that recently traded away their number one cornerback in Darelle Revis. Revis was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the number nine pick, which the Jets have now turned around and used to select Milliner.

Milliner is the number one cornerback in this year's draft, and will come in and immediately start in Rex Ryan's defense. He has great size for the position and played in a pro-style defense at Alabama, but his ball skills have been called into question. Now, the pressure is on for Milliner as he steps into a situation where people will constantly compare him to the player he replaced.
