Before the Combine, quite a few had moved him up into the top 20. Now, he's probably a late first or second rounder. His drills were that bad. I think a team takes a flyer on coaching him up in the mid 20's.

But I get you're just a kid trying to fit in so I just make fun of you.

And you do a grand job at it too!!

"You're 18, kid." - Ouch, you told me how old I am. That one hit me hard...

His position drills were horrible, he performed well in everything else though. However after the combine the highest I've seen him ranked is 20th overall and most mocks have him going in the late first or early second round.

BOTTOM LINE

The brother of NFL cornerbacks Marcus and Isaiah flashes playmaking ability and very good foot quickness, but must play stronger, smarter, and avoid technique breakdowns to be considered a sure-fire NFL starter. His skillset will still likely see him as a Day 2 selection.

@RedSchorsch: Do you consider Desmond Trufant a legitimate first round CB or a 2nd round fringe guy?" Gave him 2nd but likely goes late 1st

However, during the positional drills in Indy, he did not stay low consistently to maintain good position and this killed his ability to flip hips and change directions easily in drills. Teams really have to do their homework on Trufant to try and figure out where he should be drafted because his play at Washington was that of a third round pick, his performance at the Senior Bowl was first round caliber and at the Combine he moved around athletically like a third day draft pick.

The only thing that has him with a fringe first round grade is the fact that he ran well at the combine after he performed so well at the Senior Bowl. He lacks fundamental technique and gets high all the damn time. He sucks in press coverage and isn't very physical.

I appreciate your research, probably the first person to actually bring up his issues or use other sites to do such.

He really reminds me of Chris Gamble, both have similar knocks and both have similar skill sets.

His physicality is the only issue I see being a long term one. He is very coachable and has all the talent and potential in the world to be a shut down corner at the next level.

He will be the third corner off the board, Milliner and Rhodes could very well be gone before we even pick, and if we release Gamble - Trufant could easily be the player we choose first.

The good coming out of it are guys like you learning more about prospects so there aren't any ignorant comments.

It's pretty much impossible to stop the ignorance here though so you just have to laugh.

I do like Taylor and he would be good value in the second or third via a trade.

He's a 2nd round lock after the combine IMO. I like him alot too.

I like the idea of taking Trufant at 14, but I think it's pertinent to address our offense with the second rounder. Who IYO are the top 3 prospects at WR and on the OL (not including centers) who will be available at #46?
