Chiefs, Dee Milliner To Have Private Meeting

The Kansas City Chiefs are in the final phases of setting their draft board and that means meeting with every top prospect in the draft, which apparently included Alabama CB Dee Milliner.

Ian Rapoport of reported this morning that the Chiefs are meeting with West Virginia QB Geno Smith at Arrowhead but that they would also bring Milliner out for a visit.

From Rapoport:

Among the top prospects the Chiefs held private, on-campus workouts for were Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel, Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson, and Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher.

Coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey have been methodical and thorough in their search. After the final two visits for the top spot, they’ll settle in and set their board. While the league-wide assumption is that they will take Joeckel, the Chiefs are at least exploring every option before making a pick.

Milliner was a popular target fro some Chiefs fans before KC brought in former Miami Dolphins CB Sean Smith. Still, Milliner is considered the top corner in the 2013 class and with the NFL being a passing league, teams can never have enough elite corners.

It appears from the article that Milliner and Smith are the last players in consideration for the No. 1 pick. Rapoport says KC will set their drat board following these visits.

What do you think, Addicts? Will KC actually take Milliner at No. 1?

    I say Smith if no one trades with them.

  • Jim Winsch

    I think joeckel or fisher,i think smith is a smoke screen to see what an interested team might give up.

  • Jim Winsch

    they picked up 2 cornerback,so I don’t think millner,maybe trade down if the price is right.also if they trade albert.

  • Joshua Jay Clarke

    Defiently milliner with manning in the league we need a top notch cb

    • Michael Shaw

      I have liked Milliner this entire off-season, but with the Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson signings, I am pretty sure that drafting Milliner is also a smoke screen. I say they are more likely to draft Joeckel or Fisher #1 overall if nobody offers a good enough trade for the pick.

    • David Fritch

      The only way to stop manning is to get in his face with constant pressure. He can’t run and doesn’t like to take a hit.

  • Brady Warshawsky

    If someone trades with us to get the #1, I could see us getting Milner or Joek (Fisher) later on in the 1st. Then if we also trade Albert to pick up a 2nd rounder. Who knows what else we will get, pick wise? It could set us up for being a major player this year in the draft, & for years to come! All this action has me confused as a Chiefs fan… These moves are ALWAYS done by other franchises, not KC. I still am pinching myself to make sure this is real.

  • Chris Foosman

    We are just doing our due diligence and also making a trade seem legitimate. If we only look at one player, then there will not be a trade. In the past you also did this to drive down the price of your pick, because you can negotiate a contract with the first pick.

    On a side note, I love reading Arrowhead Addict to find the misspelling. Do you guys have spell check or do you use notepad to write your articles?

  • Kyle Hershberger

    smoke screen along with the Geno Smith reports, they are wanting to trade that first pick bad so that can build through the draft which is big for Dorsey coming from the Packers organization. but I wonder the reaction if they do end up drafting Geno.

  • thabear04

    We wont draft Milliner we just got Smith and Robinson gonna be use as a safety, But Chiefs need to trade that pick and switch it with Jags or Bills who need a QB cause who ever gets Flynn then they will go after Geno.

    You can never have to many DB’s.
