The Miami Dolphins met with former Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner this week, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Milliner is considered the top cornerback prospect in this year’s draft, and that is a position of need for Miami.
The Dolphins have a slim chance at landing Milliner with their No. 12 overall pick. If they’re interested in the Alabama cornerback, the Dolphins most likely would have to trade into the top five or six picks to get him. Miami has 11 draft picks total, including five picks in the first three rounds. That offers the Dolphins a lot of flexibility to move up in exchange for extra picks.
Miami recently signed free-agent cornerback Brent Grimes, who will be one of the starters. The Dolphins also have Richard Marshall and Dimitri Patterson currently on the roster. One or both players may be on the chopping block if Miami wants to save additional cap room.
