2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

University of Washington cornerback Desmond Trufant is garnering new found attention after a stellar week of practices and play at the Senior Bowl.

Trufant really excels in coverage, showing excellent instincts and the ability to quickly recognize routes. Stays in great position in zone coverage and possesses enough size and height to hold up in man. Can trick the quarterback into thinking his man is open. Very fluid lower half and clearly has learned a thing or two from his older brother, Marcus Trufant, a 2003 first round pick with the Seattle Seahawks.

Always seems to be in the mix to break up the pass. Solid, but not great in press coverage and will need to better utilize his height and length. A bit underweight and could afford to bulk up. Adequate leaping ability and will mix it up on 50/50 balls. Great in run support. Can break blocks, seal the edge, and get after the ball carrier. Again, added bulk would help in this area as well. No notable durability concerns.

Trufant is trending up and currently projects as an early second round pick and just might sneak into the first round in the 2013 NFL Draft.
