2014

2013

The Falcons traded up from the 30th pick to get Trufant, who will likely start in Week 1 after the departures of Brent Grimes (Miami) and Dunta Robinson (Kansas City). Trufant is more athleticism at this point than he is skill, but defensive coordinator Mike Nolan upped the productivity of defensive backs like William Moore and Thomas DeCoud when he arrived in Atlanta, so Trufant will receive effective coaching. He has the ability to play in both man coverage and more rangey zones, and that's important since Atlanta changes up their coverages a fair amount.
