2013 NFL Draft: Atlanta Falcons Select Desmond Trufant


With the #22 pick in the NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have traded their pick to the Atlanta Falcons who select Desmond Trufant out of Washington.

A senior out of Washington, the younger brother of Marcus Trufant, is an awesome coverage corner and has a lot of speed to him. Great recovery speed, excellent awareness, will more than likely become a #3 corner, but will eventually start for this team who needed to add more depth to each position on their defense.

The Minnesota Vikings are now on the clock.
