• Live draft blog: First day of the 2013 NFL draft; Trufant goes 22nd to Falcons

    Summary of 7 articles · Updated Apr 25, 2013
    With the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Falcons went defense, picking up Washington CB Desmond Trufant. But I think Trufant fits the Falcons better than they would have. The Falcons have selected defensive back Des Trufant. Trufant comes with similar confidence and swagger. Plus, he can play. Cons: Trufant isn't an especially physical player he doesn't tackle consistently against the run and needs to peel off blocks with more strength and leverage. In return, the Rams pick up the Falcons first round pick this season , the 92nd overall pick and a 6th round pick , while the Falcons move up and get a 7th rounder in 2015. Interesting take out of the Bay Area from Matt Maiocco: The 49ers should make a bold move and trade to get West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin, who is expected to be a top 10 pick in the draft.
