Trade! With the 22nd pick in the draft, the Atlanta Falcons select…

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.
