RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Alford enters training camp as a starting cornernack, but he could be replaced by rookie Jalen Collins, who the Falcons selected with their second round pick in 2015. Should Collins win the job, Alford would likely handle the nickel duties. If Alford can hold down the job for the entire season, he could be in line for 50-70 tackles and a few interceptions.

2014

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.

2013

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.
