Jets Dee Milliner Thinks He is NFL’s Best Corner


NFL NewsDee Milliner has proclaimed himself the best cornerback in the NFL. While certainly talented Milliner’s rookie campaign left a lot to be desired.

“The best corner in the league? Me,” Milliner said to Manish Mehta from Daily News on Saturday. “I ain’t gonna say that somebody else is better than me.”

Through out of much of Milliner’s rookie season, he struggled. While appearing in 13 games all year, he only deflected 7 passes in his first 11 games with no interceptions.

In his last 2 games, however, Milliner defended 10 passes and intercepted 3 passes, showing the talent that made him the 9th overall selection in the 2013 draft.

Milliner continued, “I’m not going to say somebody that plays the same position is better than me,” Milliner said. “Don’t care if they’ve been in the league 10 years and I’ve been here five months. That’s how it’s going to go. I’m the best.”

While Milliner’s attitude resembles that of former Jets standout corner Darrelle Revis, Milliner still has a lot to prove in order to be considered among the league’s elite class of corner.

While Milliners confidence is nice to see in a young player, he will have to prove quite a bit in the upcoming 2014 season in order to be considered among the league’s upper echelon of cornerbacks.
