Post Milliner to undergo surgery after the combine
Per Schefter's facebook, Milliner is scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery after the combine. I think this effectively removes him from any 1st round pick discussions (if there are still any). But it also creates the possibility that he might slide down and fall into our laps in the second round.

It really depends on the surgery, if he's just going to have it cleaned out or some other minor surgery it won't effect him much if at all. If it is a surgery serious enough to drop him to the second round, I would say the Lions should stay away. They have yet to do well with a player that comes with a medical problem.

It might slip out of the top ten but I'm not sure this drops him out of 1st round. It's not like he's a QB, his rank will be based on his 40 time that will have to be under 4.5. This might just be some clean up procedure and not any kind of reconstruction surgery. As I've said before the Lions would be fools to take Milliner anyways with the top five or six CBs not being separated by a whole lot.

Its a torn labrum. I'm not a doctor and I don't pretend to be one on the interwebs. So can someone shed some light on how big a procedure it is?

The recovery time is usually between 3-4 months for a surgery like this (depends on the tear). Problem with the labrum, is it is made of cartilage which means poor blood flow and slow healing. These types of issues can linger for a long time. I once hurt my shoulder and it took forever to heal and until fully healed the shoulder is weaker and prone to issues like dislocations.

The article I read said that the doctors are saying he will be ready by training cap. He also will be completing all the drills at the combine except the Bench Press, so I don't think his injury is going to effect his draft stock as long as he runs well in the 40.

No thanks. We have enough CBs with shoulder injuries.

I agree completely... At least he shouldn't be looked at as a top 10 pick, and this not an option for the Lions any longer.

I honestly doubt that the Lions will pick any CB this year unless Houston is not resigned/replaced. I think they'd still count of Bentley/Green/Greenwood to be the #2, 3 and 4.

I'm hoping they take at least 1 corner at some point in the draft. Don't have enough depth at that spot.

They might add a scrub for depth but I don't see any CBs taken in the draft.

He already wasn't too far in front of the next best corners, so why would we want him when we can have a healthy corner if we were to draft one?

Agreed, He just lost his place in my Signature.

This. Although I highly doubt he will be. Maybe though.
