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 NFL.com 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.
"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?
