With the 60th pick in the draft, the Atlanta Falcons select…

Robert Alford, CB, Southeast Louisiana (5-10, 188 pounds)

Although Alford lacks the ideal bulk necessary for the position at the NFL level, he is an athletic and instinctive CB that clearly possesses the physicality needed to start at the next level. He is a physical player at the LOS that works hard to redirect and cut off routes in front of him. Despite being a small school prospect, Alford could quickly move up the ranks and into a starting role with Atlanta.
