Detroit Lions draft preview CB Desmond Trufant
Broke down 4 films (Stanford, Oregon, Boise, Utah) plus Senior Bowl work on Washington CB Desmond Trufant. I like this guy a lot. He has the skill set to play man in the league.
Combine: 5111 190 4.38 16reps 3.85 20 37.5 Vj
2012 36t 1 int
Strengths: can cover. The best man cover guy in the draft. Has the swagger and speed to play at a high level. Turns his head and locates the football.
Weaknesses: Not a great tackler. Does not play a lot of zone. Has to learn about the 5 yard bump rule in the NFL.
Bottom line If this guy is there in the 2nd round he has to be in mix. He would be an impact player for the Lions. 7 rating impact starter.
