07:00 PM ET 02.26 | There was little doubt that former Alabama Crimson Tide cornerback Dee Milliner was the best defensive back prospect in the 2013 NFL Draft class, and the consensus All-American solidified his spot as the cream of the crop during on-field drills at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine on Tuesday. Milliner ran the second-fastest 40-yard dash among the defensive backs and erased any concerns that scouts had about his long speed. The official time for Milliner was 4.37 seconds. At 6-foot, 201-pounds, Milliner has cemented a spot in the top ten of April's draft.

They should make him cover Marquise Goodwin (4.25 speed). That would be a real test.

Yes, it would Dr. B-F-G. Hopefully they go to the same division and play each other regularly. Dee has the good size and speed to be a great corner in the NFL. Now all that is needed is for him to work his butt off and become what he has the potential to be. It didn't stop after the win against ND. You can always work to be better.

I would pay to watch that kind of competition at the combine. Goodwin and Taevon Austin going up against Millner and Trufant, with Tyler Wilson throwing to them. Much better than watching them run against the clock and jump against the tape measure.

And why did Notre Dame keep throwing toward him?
