Dee Milliner Featured on ESPN’s Sports Science
Alabama defensive back Dee Milliner became the second Crimson Tide player to be featured on ESPN’s Sports Science Combine series after offensive lineman DJ Fluker appeared a week ago.
The segment featured Milliner’s quickness, acceleration, and jumping ability. Host John Brenkus compared his acceleration to all-pro Adrian Peterson and his overall grade slotted him between NFL Pro Bowlers Patrick Petersen and Antonio Cromartie.
The most impressive attributes Milliner showcases are his leaping ability – 41″ running vertical leap – and his closing speed – covered 20 feet in less than one second. Mock drafts project him as high as fourth overall in the upcoming NFL Draft while ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper ranks him fourth on his ‘Big Board.’
