Through all the smokescreens and the haze that are leading up to this week’s NFL Draft, it appears as though Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner — who, at one point, was considered by some to be a potential top-five pick — is slowly making his way down the draft board.

One reason might be this: Milliner might not be ready for the start of preseason camp because of a faulty shoulder, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Even though he attended the NFL Combine in February before having the surgery on his torn labrum, he put on a good show. He wasn’t considered by analysts to have elite cornerback speed, but he ran a blazing 40, even with his injured shoulder, and he reaffirmed himself as the top cornerback to come out of college this year.
