Dee Milliner # prospect in 2013 NFL Draft.
Dee Milliner NFL Draft Bio
DeMarcus "Dee" Milliner (born September 14, 1991) is an American football cornerback for the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Alabama, and was recognized as a consensus All-American in 2012. After three seasons at Alabama, Milliner entered the 2013 NFL Draft as an underclassman and was drafted with the ninth overall pick by the New York Jets.
Milliner attended the University of Alabama, where he played for coach Nick Saban's Alabama Crimson Tide football team from 2010 to 2012. As a true freshman in 2010, he played in all 13 games and earned 11 starts. Three times he was named among the Defensive Players of the Week by the Alabama coaching staff. His season-high eight tackles came against Mississippi State. Milliner registered his first career interception against Georgia State, on November 18. After the season, he was named a 2010 Freshman All-American by College Football News.
In his sophomore season, Milliner was the third cornerback in Alabama's depth chart, behind Dre Kirkpatrick and DeQuan Menzie. He played in all 13 games and started six, including in all nickel or dime situations. He had 27 tackles, and ranked second on the team with nine pass breakups while leading the team with three interceptions that he returned for 72 yards. Early in the season, against No. 23 Penn State, Milliner broke up a career best three passes in the Tide's 27–11 win. In the 2011 Iron Bowl against Auburn, he made a season-high six tackles with four solo stops. Milliner intercepted his third pass of the season early in the fourth quarter and returned it 35 yards for a game-clinching score.
With Kirkpatrick and Menzie leaving for the NFL after the 2011 season, Milliner was Alabama's undisputed top cornerback. Apart from the Western Kentucky game, which he missed due to a strained hip flexor, he started all games of the season, and totaled 51 tackles with two interceptions and 18 pass breakups, which ranks third on Alabama's single-season list. Milliner led the Southeastern Conference with 1.67 passes defended per game, and twice totaled four pass breakups in a game (Michigan and Mississippi) plus three at Missouri. He was subsequently named a unanimous first-team All-American, while also being among the finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and Jim Thorpe Award.
