Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford Rookie Season Highlights

The Atlanta Falcons already have a dynamic duo in the form of Julio Jones and Roddy White, but there’s definitely another dynamic duo on the horizon for the team in the form of rookie corner backs Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford.

"I thought they did a great job," Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan said. "They weren’t fazed by the situation. Nothing was too big for them. That’s exciting." "I don’t mind it," Trufant said. "There’s always expectations and things you’ve got to live up to. That’s just par for this game."

Besides, making his older brothers proud is probably a bigger burden. Cornerback is the family business, with Marcus Trufant playing 10 seasons for the Seattle Seahawks, while Isaiah Trufant played nine games for the New York Jets last season. "They’re always hard on me," the youngster said with a smile. "That’s just the way it goes. But they said I did pretty well."

Both Trufant and Alford have the sort of confidence and short memory that is the hallmark of any successful cornerback. In the offense-minded NFL, even the best are going to give up lots of completions. "I feel like I’m the best on the field," Alford said. "Pretty much whoever they put in front of me, that’s who I’m going to stop. They’re going to have a long day."

Who’s Ready for next season??
