Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington Huskies (6-0, 186 pounds)
Via a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 22 pick, the Falcons address a big need with the selection of cornerback Desmond Trufant. The Falcons cut CB Dunta Robinson and lost CB Brent Grimes to free agency and Trufant is a very smooth, fluid athlete with great ball skills. For a cornerback who is willing to come up and defend the run, he also excels in coverage because of his excellent instincts and awareness.
