Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DESMOND TRUFANT: Washington, 5111 190 4.38. Four-year starter. Comes from a long line of defensive backs. A good athlete who was regularly matched up on the opponent’s best receiver. Good football instincts. Takes a direct line to the ball with no false steps. Good short area quickness. Quick footed and aggressive. Can play press. Solid man-to-man coverage with good change of direction and ability to mirror cuts. Got caught peeking in the backfield a couple of times at the Senior Bowl and gave up some catches despite good coverage. Ran hip to hip with most receivers, but struggled with conference rival Markus Wheaton. Trufant demonstrates good zone awareness and has solid overall cover skills. Confidence and competitiveness are no problem. Has two brothers with NFL experience. Should be a first year starter. Talent to contribute early. 2012 stats: 36 T, 9 PBU, 1 INT, 1 FF, 1 FR. BTR:left 4.46, right 4.64. OSR:2/35. First/second round. (A-31 1/4, H-8 5/8, VJ-37.5, SS-3.85). CAMP NOTES: Desmond Trufant was a targeted player that the Falcons moved up to draft. The confident and competitive corner is an outstanding athlete with good short area quickness and football instincts. He will line up on the right side opposite Asante Samuel. With the loss of Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson, the former Husky has big shoes to fill. He will be getting reps at both outside and inside versus slot receivers. He has missed OTAs due to his June 15th graduation day.
