RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Alford is expected to start at cornerback opposite Desmond Trufant in 2014. The team parted ways with Asante Samuel in the offseason, and Alford, a second round pick just a year ago, will be called upon to fill the void. He tallied 40 tackles and two interceptions in a limited role last season, so expect those numbers to increase with more playing time this year.
Alford will back up both Asante Samuel and Desmond Trufant at corner in 2013, and he will be used in some nickel and dime packages. He'll be groomed to take over for Samuel once the veteran moves on.
