Sport Science: Dee Milliner is really fast
By Jamison Hensley
Many mock drafts have the Cleveland Browns taking Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner with the No. 6 overall pick. He is the top-rated cornerback in the draft and one of the fastest prospects at any position.
Milliner ran a blazing 4.37 time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine. That speed is highlighted in the Sport Science video in which he accelerates to 20 miles per hour in 2.34 seconds. That's the quickest of any player clocked in this year's draft and is better than running back Adrian Peterson from 2007.
Milliner also shows off his athleticism when the 6-foot defender dunks a basketball -- while wearing a full set of football pads.
