Miami Dolphins host draft prospect Dee Milliner

Wesley Hitt

The Miami Dolphins hosted draft prospect Dee Milliner recently. Milliner, expected to be taken in the first few picks of the 2013 draft, is the top rated cornerback, a position of need for Miami.

While it could all be a matter of smokescreen or a case of the Miami Dolphins simply doing their due diligence on a potential draft target, the team recently hosted former Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Milliner is the top rated player at his position, a position of need for Miami.

If the Dolphins were to go after Milliner, they would likely have to trade up into the top five selections later this month. This could simply be the Dolphins letting other teams know they are interested in Milliner, smoke-screening their real draft target, or it could be the team just looking at a potential selection if, somehow, Milliner were to fall all the way to 12.

Miami has 11 total draft picks this year, including multiple second and third round choices.

While the Dolphins signed free agent corner Brent Grimes recently, the team is still in need of secondary help. Grimes is coming off a torn Achilles tendon, while Richard Marshall, the other presumed starter at the position, is trying to return after back surgery last year.

The NFL Draft kicks off April 25 with the first round.
