22. Falcons – CB Desmond TrufantPosted: April 25, 2013
Measurables: 6’0″ 190 lbs 31 1/4″ arm length
NFL Combine: 4.38 40-yard 16 bench reps
NFL Comparison: Corey Webster
Trufant is athletic and he’s scheme versatile. Like a younger Webster, he can press and will succeed in both zone and man coverage in the NFL.
He lacks top speed (not playing as well as his 40 time) while at the same time not displaying a fluidity of movement that could be a negative in man coverage in the NFL.
Football is in the bloodline here, as Desmond’s brothers Marcus and Isaiah are both NFL cornerbacks.
